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) is coming off a 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.
