UFC Vegas 19 results: Derrick Lewis equalizes Curtis Blaydes knockout record

Derrick Lewis finished a stacked UFC Vegas 19 with an exclamation mark, knocking out Curtis Blaydes in a main event that followed a night full of arrivals. UFC Vegas 19 results: Derrick Lewis lands record knockout over Curtis Blaydes Derrick Lewis was ranked No.4 in the UFC heavyweight division on Saturday night. He’ll come back up at least one spot after blowing up No.2-ranked Curtis Blaydes. Blaydes kept his distance early and for good reason. As soon as he moved in, Lewis landed a hard punch that briefly stunned him. After recovering his legs, Blaydes approached more cautiously, rushing in and out of Lewis’s punching power. Lewis got off balance halfway through and Blaydes took advantage, hitting him with a few punches and leg kicks that supported him. Lewis finally stepped forward, but ate a few hard punches from Blaydes, pulling away from him. Blaydes squeezed, pushing one knee up to the chin and following it with an arched elbow. Just as Blaydes appeared to be doing damage in the dying moments of the first round, the action was halted after accidentally catching Lewis with a finger in the eye. Blaydes shot early in the second round, but couldn’t score the out. He took the center of the Octagon, Lewis stepping back carefully. Confident of his previous shot, Blaydes attempted another out, this time running straight into a Lewis uppercut. The explosive punch sent Blaydes crashing into the canvas. Lewis dropped a few more punches to the head of his downcast opponent before referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight. With Blaydes’ knockout, Lewis matched Vitor Belfort for most knockouts in UFC history with 12. So what’s next? Lewis is not sure. “I heard Jon Jones is coming. So it doesn’t make sense for me to say I’m fighting for the title. So we’ll just see,” he said after the fight. If he had a chance on the winner of the upcoming fight between UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and No.1 Francis Ngannou, Lewis has a preference. “Stipe. I guess Stipe. I love these wrestlers,” Lewis said, after knocking out a fighter who was supposed to be able to beat him.
