Derrick Lewis vs Sergey Spivak all you need to know

The UFC returns to the Apex on Saturday as heavyweight rivals Derrick Lewis and Sergey Spivak top the bill.

After the drama of UFC 281 at Madison Square Garden, which saw two titles change hands, it's back to Las Vegas for a Fight Night card this weekend.

Lewis, 13/8 to win, has already fought twice in 2022, but he has tasted defeat on both occasions and is looking to sign off the year on a positive note.

He is ranked #7 in the heavyweight division, but is some way off being in the mix for a title shot, especially if a third successive loss comes his way.

The American's losses this year have come against #5 Sergei Pavlovich and #4 Tai Tuivasi - both by knockout - and he's set for another stern test at the Apex.

Spivak, priced at 8/15 to come out victorious, has won both of his trips to the octagon in 2022, bouncing back from defeat against Englishman Tom Aspinall in September 2021.

That was just the third defeat of Spivak's 18-fight career and brought a halt to a three-fight win streak.

The Moldovan has ambitions to challenge for the heavyweight strap in 2023 and he'll need to make it three wins on the bounce to stay in contention.
