UFC Vegas 45: Derrick Lewis Rocks Chris Daukaus, Sets UFC Record

Derrick Lewis closed out the year with a bang.

Former title challenger Lewis (26-8, 1 NC) faced newly rising contender Chris Daukaus (12-4) in the heavyweight main event.

Lewis proved that he is one of the most dangerous strikers of the division and served Daukaus his first-ever loss in the UFC.

In the very first round, Lewis landed some huge punches and earned a brutal knockout victory. It was the first-ever loss for Daukaus in the UFC after earning four victories in a row.

In the co-main event, the top contenders of the welterweight division shared the octagon for the all three rounds.

No. 5 ranked contender Stephen Thompson shared the octagon with the No. 10 ranked contender Belal Muhammad. The fight held for all three rounds, and Muhammad dominated them.

Muhammad is a lethal striker, but so is Thompson, so Muhammad wrestled with him and dominate on the ground.

Polish prospect Mateusz Gamrot earned another victory in the UFC. This time he defeated experienced fighter of the UFC, Diego Ferreira.

After taking the back of a Brazilian jiu-jitsu artist, he landed a massive knee to the body, and Brazilian tapped immediately. Matesz has only one defeat in the UFC against Georgian Guram Kutateladze.

Cub Swanson came back event stronger after suffering a first-round knockout kick against Georgian fighter Giga Chikadze. He landed spectacular combinations against Darren Elkins and finished the fight in the first round via knockout.
