Record

The former two-time heavyweight title challenger Derrick Lewis hasn’t had an easy go of things as of late, collecting a record of just 1-3 over his last four fights.

Lewis has now lost two in a row - one knockout at the hands of Tai Tuivasa and, most recently, a first-round TKO at the hands of rising contender Sergei Pavlovich at UFC 277 last July.

He was originally scheduled to fight Spivak last November but was forced to pull out of the bout due to illness.

Sergey Spivak is 5-1 over his last six fights and has won his last two in a row. He earned a TKO victory over Greg Hardy before moving on to TKO Augusto Sakai in the second round of their August 2022 fight.

Both men stand at equal height but Lewis, the record holder in the UFC for the most knockouts in UFC history, will have a one-inch reach advantage. 

However, it is Spivak that is listed as the notable -250 favorite to secure the win in Saturday’s main event.

After 14 wins in a row - including four in the UFC, light heavyweight Jung Da-Un recently suffered his first loss since 2015 at the hands of Dustin Jacoby via first-round knockout last July.

His opponent this Saturday, Devin Clark, is just 1-3 in his last four fights, having most recently suffered a third-round TKO loss against Azamat Murzakanov. Prior to that, Clark had defeated William Knight in a heavyweight contest.

Jung - a heavy favorite at -265 - will stand four inches taller than Clark and have a 3.5-inch reach advantage when they go toe-to-toe this weekend.

Marcin Tybura recently cracked the top 10 in the heavyweight division, having gone on a five-fight winning streak that included wins over Walt Harris and this event’s main event fighter Sergey Spivak.

His winning streak was snapped in 2021 by Alexander Volkov but Tybura bounced back with a unanimous decision win over Alexander Romanov at UFC 278 last August.

Blagoy Ivanov is also coming off of a unanimous decision win, having defeated Marcos Rogerio de Lima at UFC 274 last May.

Prior to that win, Ivanov had lost two fights in a row.

Tybura holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, will stand four inches taller than Ivanov and will have a five-inch reach advantage over his opponent this Saturday.

Choi Doo-Ho was riding a nine-fight winning streak when he signed with the UFC and went on to win his first three fights in a row with the promotion - all by first-round stoppages.

However, Choi has now lost his last three fights in a row (despite earning fight of the night honors in each of those losses). His last fight took place in 2019, where he lost via second-round TKO to Charles Jourdain.

This will be Choi’s first fight in more than three years.

He takes on Kyle Nelson - who is just 1-4 in his last five fights.

Nelson has lost his last two fights back-to-back; his most recent loss coming against Jai Herbert last Summer.

Coming off of a third-round TKO win on the Contender Series, Japan’s Yusaku Kinoshita will make his UFC debut this Saturday. He is riding a two-fight professional winning streak.

His opponent, Adam Fugitt, made his UFC debut last year at UFC 277. Things didn't go as planned for Fugitt as he was defeated in the first round by Michael Morales via TKO.

Despite only a one-inch difference in height, Fugitt will enjoy a substantial 5.5-inch reach advantage over Kinoshita.
