UFC Fight Night Lewis vs Spivac: 5 underappreciated victories for Derrick Lewis

Lewis will undoubtedly be at the top of the list of overlooked UFC superstars. Given his position in the company, he is far more talented than people think. He has the timing, lethal power, and fastest counterpuncher one has ever seen. Speaking of his underappreciated victory, the first name that springs to mind is the victory over Francis Ngannou.

At UFC 226, Derrick Lewis prevailed over Francis Ngannou. Fans anticipated a knockout victory for any fighter because both boast powerful KO abilities.

The two competitors even got into a violent argument during the ceremonial weigh-ins, with Lewis pushing the Cameroonian fighter, much to the delight of the crowd. Lewis ultimately triumphed via decision in the contest after three rounds of tussling between the two fighters.

Curtis Blaydes

Lewis vs Blaydes was the one impressive performance that stunned everyone. The Black Beast exhibited his devastating prowess in the UFC Apex Facility. In the 1st round, he seemed under-matched while going up against Blaydes.

But Lewis came back brilliantly to end the fight in the second round surprising everyone. Lewis’s strong punch stunned Blaydes and sent him to the ground. And he gained earned one of the most memorable victories which will go down as one of the underrated victories in UFC.

Travis Browne

Travis was knocked to the ground during Browne vs. Lewis and absorbed roughly a dozen hard punches before being knocked out. The final couple of them were defenseless and caused Browne’s head to crash off the canvas at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. At the end of the second round, he got a knockout victory over Browne at UFC Fight Night 105.

And referee Mario Yamasaki delayed too long to intervene. Many believed that the fight would have ended in an unfortunate event if the referee had entered a bit later, given how badly he had beaten him throughout. Which reveals a great deal about the fight.

Volkov vs. Lewis’ championship battle at UFC 229 produced a match that will go down in history. In the third round of the bout at UFC 229 in 2018, Lewis fought back to prevail. Nobody anticipated Lewis would make it to the final in this classic comeback fight.

Not only did he survive but he also prevailed in the fight despite taking brutally devastating blows. In the 3rd round, he completely destroyed him with a barrage of blows in the last few seconds of the round he got his victory.
