The UFC Vegas 65 fight card is set to take place in the UFC APEX from Las Vegas, NV this Saturday, November 19th. Featuring a couple of top ranked heavyweights.
The main card features some top 10 implications as Derrick Lewis looks to hang on to his divisional standing following two KO/TKO losses in his last two outings. Spivac, on the other hand, is looking to continue his last two finishes as he won his last two by KO/TKO. This is a huge opportunity for Spivac to cement a top ten ranking and boost his fan base. For Lewis it’s a chance to showcase his skills and prove his run for the title is not over.
The co-main event is Nigerian fighter Kennedy Nzechukwu vs Ion Cutelaba in the light heavyweight division. Nzechukwu is looking to put a streak together after he won by way of 3rd round KO/TKO against Roberson in July. Cutelaba is looking to impress as he has suffered two recent losses by submission.
