Blaydes is on a four-fight winning streak that followed a second loss to Francis Ngannou. Since then, “Razor” hasn’t been slowed down on his bid to break through the pack for a title shot.

Standing in Blaydes’ way is Lewis, a knockout machine who most recently put down Alexey Oleinik for this third straight win. The style matchup gives him a change to refine the wrestling and cardio he’s been working on to shore up a longstanding deficit in his game.
