Preview of UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Spivac
Lewis (26-10-1) has been one of the most popular fighters on the UFC roster for the better part of a decade. His devastating one-punch power makes his fights must-see events, and his irreverent wit in interviews keeps fans watching him long after the fights are over.
The fact that Lewis is likely the most successful heavyweight in UFC history to never wear the belt is lost in the adoration for his sense of humour and gregarious nature. In November 2018, he was defeated by former champion Daniel Cormier in a title fight, and in August of last year, he was defeated by Ciryl Gane for the interim title.
Nonetheless, he has a knockout victory over No. 3 ranked Curtis Blaydes and a decision victory over current champion Francis Ngannou on his resume. The 37-year-old has been knocked out in his last two fights by rising prospects, and a third would likely relegate him to gatekeeper status.
Spivac (15-3) is one of a new generation of heavyweights poised to take over the top tier of the division. The 27-year-old Moldovan fighter came into the UFC with a 9-0 record, but he was defeated in his debut by journeyman Walt Harris.
He has won six of his eight subsequent appearances, but lost to the best opponent he has faced in that time. Spivac was defeated by sixth-ranked Tom Aspinall in September of last year. Spivac has bounced back this year with victories over Greg Hardy and Augusto Sakai, and a third straight victory Saturday will likely propel him into the top-10 rankings. Only here can you see who to pick for UFC Fight Night.
Picks for UFC Fight Night
Here’s one of Marley’s UFC Fight Night predictions: He is betting on Miles Johns (-165) to beat Vince Morales (+145) in a preliminary card bantamweight fight.
Johns (12-2) is a versatile prospect who has scored knockouts and earned performance bonuses in his last two victories. However, the 28-year-old Kansas native is looking to rebound from a February submission loss to John Castaneda.
Morales (11-6) is a four-year UFC veteran known for his powerful punches and fast pace. The 32-year-old Idaho native has won two of his last three fights but was defeated in May by fellow prospect Jonathan Martinez.
“I give Johns the strength and wrestling advantage. Morales has no defense against leg kicks, so I expect Johns to exploit that weakness and slow Morales down as the fight progresses “Marley explained to SportsLine. Check out who else is backing right here.
