UFC Vegas 19: Blaydes vs. Lewis - Winners and Losers

The UFC heavyweight division was in a weird spot heading into Saturday’s UFC Vegas 19 fight card. Stipe Miocic puts his title on the line against No. 1 ranked Francis N’Gannou on March 27 in the main event of UFC 260. The promotion expects former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones to face the winner of that contest. Meanwhile, at UFC Vegas 19, No. 2 ranked Curtis Blaydes faced No. 4 ranked Derrick Lewis.

Lewis was a significant underdog by the time the fight started, but something we know about Derrick Lewis is that he hits really hard and his power can change the trajectory of a fight in a millisecond.
