The UFC Apex in Las Vegas will be the scene for one of the biggest UFC Fight Night events of 2021. It’s fitting that the UFC will draw the curtain on the year, with a bumper fight card headlined by a heavyweight showdown.

#3 ranked heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis will be looking for victory to reignite his UFC Heavyweight title quest, while his opponent, the #7 ranked Chris Daukaus, also has ambitions of climbing his way towards a title opportunity.

Lewis saw a shot at Francis Ngannou’s heavyweight crown slip through his fingers after losing to Ciryl Gane for the UFC interim heavyweight title at UFC 265 back in August.

Daukaus is one of the hottest heavyweights in the UFC, courtesy of five fight winning run, and remains undefeated since joining the organization.

Francis Ngannou and Cyril Gane will unify the heavyweight belts in their own showdown at UFC 270 in January, and Sunday’s winner will ensure that they are next in line.

The heavyweight clash is just one of a host of high profile fights at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs Daukaus.

Sunday’s co-main event sees welterweight contenders Stephen Thompson and Belal Muhammad square off inside the Octagon.

Amanda Lemos and Angela Hill are also in action, in the women’s strawweight division and Raphael Assuncao and Ricky Simon meet in a bantamweight affair.
