Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is roughly one month away from its UFC Fight Night 146 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, scheduled for Sat., March 9, 2019 inside INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas, pitting heavy-handed former title contender, Derrick Lewis, against ex-heavyweight champion, Junior dos Santos.
Now it has an official poster.
Lewis (21-6, 1 NC) slugged his way into a last-minute title shot opposite Daniel Cormier at UFC 230 back in November, but watched his three fight win streak go up in smoke by way of “DC” submission midway through the second stanza.
Dos Santos (20-5) joins the ESPN+ fight card on the strength of his technical knockout victory over Tai Tuivasa at the UFC Fight Night 142 headliner last December in Adelaide. It was the second straight win for “Cigano” after outpointing Blagoy Ivanov at UFC Fight Night 133 last summer.
Elsewhere on the card, “Big” Ben Rothwell makes his Octagon return against the aforementioned Ivanov, while longtime middleweight veteran, Tim Boetsch, collides with the rough-and-tumble Omari Akhmedov.
