This is a fight between two fan-favorites in the UFC. Derrick Lewis vs Tai Tuivasa is going to draw a lot of excitement, especially with Lewis fighting in his hometown of Houston. Don’t expect this fight to go the distance.

Lewis has the most knockouts in UFC history. However, Tuivasa has been knocked out only once, which was against Junior Dos Santos back in 2018. Tuivasa has seemingly figured it out, as he has risen the ranks after four straight knockout victories.

With the length and seemingly the power advantage, Lewis should be considered to end this fight within two rounds. However, we saw him crumble in his last fight in front of a Houston crowd. Will the pressure be too much?
