I'm So Happy for Derrick Lewis

In a huge week of fight announcements and withdrawals, one that stood out to me was that Derrick Lewis got a long-awaited title shot against Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Truly, this is such a Derrick Lewis way to get a shot, and we will explain why, but I just want to say that Derrick Lewis is getting what he deserves.

Landscape of the Heavyweight Division

UFC 226 is now old news. It’s done. Due to the falling out of the 145 title fight, the main and co-main were Heavyweight clashes, one for the title and the other a likely #1 contender fight. Then you had one of the most boring fights ever, a double champ, and Brock Lesnar. With all of this shaking up, it’s appropriate to see where the division stands now, at least for the immediate future.
