Lewis hopes to get back into the win column after suffering two knockout losses this year. In his last fight, Sergei Pavlovich defeated Lewis in less than a minute at UFC 277 on July 30. This year’s two losses have Lewis fighting to keep his spot in the top ten of the heavyweight division.
Spivak is looking to get one of the biggest wins of his career against Lewis. He is slowly climbing up the heavyweight rankings on a two-fight win streak. His last win was against Augusto Sakai by TKO at UFC Vegas 59 on Aug. 7. A win over Lewis will put Spivak within the top ten of the heavyweight division.
The co-main event of UFC Vegas 65 will be a light-heavyweight matchup between Ion Cutelaba and Kennedy Nzechukwu. Cutelaba will try to end his two-fight losing streak, while Nzechukwu hopes to get a big win over his opponent.
