Lewis (26-11 MMA) had entered the contest looking to rebound, this after suffering back-to-back knockout losses to Sergei Pavlovich and Tai Tuivasa in his previous efforts. ‘The Black Beast’ had gone just 2-3 over his past five fight overall, scoring stoppage wins over Curtis Blaydes and Chris Daukaus during that stretch.

Meanwhile, Sergey Spivak (16-3 MMA) entered UFC Vegas 68 sporting a two-fight winning streak, this after earning TKO victories over Greg Hardy and Augusto Sakai in his most previous Octagon appearances. The ‘Polar Bear’ had put together a 6-3 record since joining the UFC ranks in May of 2019.

Tonight’s heavyweight main event did not make it out of the opening round. Sergey Spivak was able to get Derrick Lewis to the canvas in the early moments of the scrap and eventually locked up a fight-ending arm triangle choke. ‘The Black Beast’ had no choice but to tapout to the submission hold.
