UFC 271 has added another fan-friendly match-up.
Number 3 ranked Derrick Lewis takes on number 11 ranked Tai Tuivasa at UFC 271 on February 12th in Houston Texas.
Both fighters are coming spectacular knockout wins last month.
Derrick Lewis knocked out the biggest prospect in the heavyweight division, Chris Daukaus.
Tuivasa had his biggest win to date knocking out Augusto Sakai in the 2nd round at UFC 269.
Tuivasa has really turned his career around after losing three straight matches to Junior dos Santos, Blagoy Ivanov, and Sergey Spivak.
Now riding a 4 fight KO win streak against Stefan Struve, Harry Hunsucker, Greg Hardy, and Augusto Sakai.
If Tuivasa wins this fight he’ll be able to call for a title shot against the winner of Ngannou and Gane.
So expect him to leave it all on the line against Lewis.
Both these fighters are fan favorites because of their post-fight antics, and Derrick Lewis is his fighting in his hometown.
No matter who wins it’s going to be an extremely entertaining fight and post-fight interview.
