Derrick Lewis Analysis: The knockout king is back

On his 12th UFC card, Derrick Lewis (27-12) is the main event. 2023 was a mixed bag, as the knockout king is known to do. The year began with Sergey Spivac submitting him. He later recovered, knocking out Marcos Rogerio de Lima at UFC 291 and increasing his record for UFC knockouts to 14 with a stunning running flying knee from the bell. But after that, he was given a well-known wrestling lesson by Jailton Almeida, who skillfully reached a unanimous decision. The challenge is whether Lewis can stay upright and locate a place for one of his missiles, just as in all of his battles.

 

Rodrigo Nascimento Analysis: On a 3-fight winning run

Since 2020, Rodrigo Nascimento (11-1) has gone 4-1-0-1 in the UFC. He has risen quickly through the ranks, winning three straight fights before this one. He’s defeated Ilir Latifi, Tanner Boser, and Don’Tale Mayes all by decision, and he hopes to accomplish the same against the most formidable foe of his career. Nascimento has an 80-inch reach and is 6’2″. Because Lewis is a knockout fighter, Rodrigo Nascimento will not be able to push the takedown in this bout due to the high cost of any error. Lewis is stunned before he can get a shot of his own due to Nascimento’s excellent reflexes and reach, which allow him to keep the battle at a distance.
