UFC Fight Night: Curtis Blaydes vs. Derrick Lewis date, time, TV channel, live stream

The UFC returns to action with UFC Fight Night from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas in a battle of top four heavyweights at the top of the bill, as No. 2-ranked Curtis Blaydes takes on No. 4-ranked Derrick Lewis.

Blaydes and Lewis were set to square off back at the end of November. Days before the fight, Blaydes contracted COVID-19 and the bout was subsequently pulled. 

Blaydes (14-2, one no-contest) enters the contest on a four-fight winning streak, including a unanimous decision win over No. 5-ranked Alexander Volkov in a UFC Fight Night headliner back in June. A win against Lewis would move Blaydes toward his first UFC title shot. 

Lewis (24-7, one no-contest), a former heavyweight title challenger, is on a good run of his own. The Texas native has won three consecutive bouts, including a second-round TKO victory against No. 10-ranked Aleksei Oleinik in a UFC Fight Night main event back in August. Getting a victory over Blaydes would give "The Black Beast" another opportunity at UFC gold after losing by second-round submission to Daniel Cormier at UFC 230 in November 2018.

The winner is expected to put himself in a position to make the claim of being the No. 1 contender and take on whoever emerges victorious in the rematch between heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and No. 1-ranked Francis Ngannou on March 27 at UFC 260.
