The UFC has set a heavyweight headliner clash for this November 19.
Former heavyweight title challenger Derrick Lewis is set to return against a fresh opponent, Serghei Spivac, in a five-round main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Nov. 19.
The promotion officially announced the matchup Saturday afternoon.
Lewis will look to get back into the win column after dropping his last two outings against Tai Tuivasa in February and Sergei Pavlovich in July.
Lewis’ last victory came against Chris Daukaus in December, a vicious one-round, record-setting knockout finish.
Pavlovich is a winner of his two previous bouts, picking up stoppage wins over Greg Hardy in March and Augusto Asakai in August. He enters the first main event of his UFC tenure in his 10th appearance.
With the addition, the Nov. 19 lineup includes:
- Derrick Lewis vs. Serghei Spivac
