Sources are reporting a heavyweight bout between Derrick “Black Beast” Lewis (21-7) and Marcin Tybura (16-3) is being targeted for UFC Fight Night 126 on Feb 18th in Austin, Texas.
Tybura, 3-2 in UFC, is coming off a hard-fought decision loss to former UFC heavyweight champion, Fabricio Werdum. The former M-1 heavyweight titleholder was on three-fight win streak before he fell to Werdum.
Lewis’ last trip to the cage resulted in him losing by TKO to Mark Hunt in June. Before the loss to Hunt, Lewis was on a six-fight winning streak.
Lewis was last in the news for heroically saving and helping a multitude of people during hurricane Harvey in August.
