Derrick Lewis is a heavyweight fighter in the UFC.
Lewis most recently fought newcomer Damian Grabowski knocking out Grabowski with ground and pound strikes in the first round.
Lewis then fought veteran Gabriel Gonzaga knocking out Gonzaga with mere seconds left in a competitive opening round.
Lewis then asked for and received a fight with veteran Roy Nelson. Lewis was dominated by a lackluster Nelson who was fighting safe but the judges did not reward Nelson, instead declaring Lewis the winner by an audacious split decision.
Lewis next signed to fight relative unknown Marcin Tybura in the Phillipines.
