It has been announced that former UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum will take on Derrick Lewis at UFC 216 on October 7 in Las Vegas.
Werdum last fought in July at International Fight Week's, UFC 213, taking on Alistair Overeem for the 3rd time in his career. He lost that fight to the former title challenger by a close majority decision. He looks to keep himself in title contention against Lewis.
Lewis hasn't fought since June 11 when he took on Mark Hunt at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Hunt, losing to Hunt by knockout in the 4th round. After the fight he announced his retirement, but has clearly changed his mind after taking this fight with Werdum. Prior to the loss he was on a 6-fight winning streak. He looks to get back into the winning column.
Who will win this great heavyweight matchup?
