Heavyweights Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis will look to build off of previous headlining wins when they battle on November 28th, main eventing a UFC card. News of the pairing was first reported by Brett Okamoto of ESPN.
Lewis takes the November booking shortly following his last win, where he stopped Alexey Oleinik in the second round with strikes. The win was on August 8th, headlining a card from the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Blaydes’ last fight was a similar context, with his June win over Alexander Volkov coming from a five-round fight. The win extended Blaydes’ winning streak to four-in-a-row.
The headlining fight for November 28th is the first announced for the card. The location for the event is currently not known.
