UFC Vegas 65 preview show: Do-or-die for Derrick Lewis in heavyweight division?


Popular UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis admits he has his back against the wall ahead of his UFC Vegas 65 main event bout with Serghei Spivac, but is it a do-or-die fight for “The Black Beast” in terms of being a contender in the division?

MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, Alexander K. Lee, and E. Casey Leydon discuss the stakes for Lewis in Saturday’s bout and what a win would do for the career of Spivac in the contender conversation. Topics include Ion Cutelaba’s calmer post-weigh-in faceoffs with Kennedy Nzechukwu and Jack Della Maddalena’s ceiling in the Welterweight Division, as well as the hidden bouts on Saturday.
