Dana White reacts to the fight between Spivak and Lewis

Despite his third stoppage loss in a row, former UFC heavyweight title contender Derrick Lewis may not worry about his place on the organization’s roster.

This was announced at a press conference after the UFC Fight Night 218 tournament by UFC President Dana White, summing up the fight between Lewis and Sergey Spivak, which ended with the victory of the Moldavian heavyweight by arm triangle choke in the first round.

“Look, I have a lot of respect for Derrick Lewis – I like this guy,” – said the head of the strongest league in the world at a press conference in Las Vegas. “Today they dealt with him. Spivak looked very good, he made a big statement, but as long as I’m here, Derrick is not in danger – I love this guy, so he will remain in the organization.

The dominant performance of 28-year-old Sergei Spivak was marked by a tournament bonus, and he himself announced that he wanted to see one of the division’s top five fighters as his next opponent.
