Derrick Lewis v Sergey Spivak: All you need to know

After the highs of UFC 283 in Brazil on 21st January, the promotion offers up its latest card this weekend when heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Sergey Spivak collide.

Lewis, priced at 15/8 To Win, is looking to embark on a third run towards a shot at the heavyweight belt. 

The 37-year-old's first title bout came in 2018 when he lost to Daniel Cormier but he bounced back and competed for the interim strap in 2021, losing to Ciryl Gane.

He is 1-2 since that defeat to Gane at UFC 265, with his last two trips to the octagon ending in defeat, and a victory is required this weekend if he is to stand any chance of returning to the title conversation.

Spivac, meanwhile, is 4/9 To Win after recording back-to-back victories following his TKO loss to Englishman Tom Aspinall in 2021.

The Moldovan is yet to earn an opportunity to compete for heavyweight gold but the #12 ranked-fighter is on the rise.

His last two wins have come by knockout, taking his career tally of victories via that route to seven and he can be backed at 4/6 to win By KO, TKO, DQ or Submission.

Lewis is 9/4 to win By KO, TKO, DQ or Submission and the Black Beast has 21 career wins by knockout, while he boasts the record for most knockout wins in the UFC (13).
