UFC returns with UFC Vegas 68 next weekend. Derrick Lewis, the No. 7 heavyweight contender, and Serghei Spivac, the No. 12 heavyweight contender, will square off in the gritty main event as UFC returns to the UFC APEX. Light heavyweights Da-Un Jung and Devin Clark square off in the co-main event.

Derrick Lewis vs. Serghei Spivac Preview

Lewis (26-10, fighting out of Houston, Texas) has challenged for the heavyweight title and is back in the Octagon with the goal of making a statement. Lewis was a longtime top contender and fan favourite who made headlines for his highlight-reel knockouts of Chris Daukaus, Curtis Blaydes, and Aleksei Oleinik. The native of Houston now sets out to maintain his position in the rankings and demonstrate that he still poses a threat to the division.

Rising fighter Spivac (15-3, fighting out of Chisinau, Republic of Moldova) aims to make his first-ever Top 10 appearance at heavyweight. Spivac quickly ascended the ranks with his powerful knockouts of Jared Vanderaa, Greg Hardy, and Augusto Sakai. He now wants to take advantage of his first UFC main event by decisively stopping Lewis.

Da-Un Jung vs. Devin Clark Preview

Jung (15-3-1, fighting out of Seoul, South Korea) is a dangerous attacker who seeks to establish himself as a top contender by putting on an impressive performance. He had important victories over Mike Rodriguez, William Knight, and Kennedy Nzechukwu. Jung now wants to defeat Clark and add another memorable victory to his résumé.

By eliminating a rising contender, Clark (13-7, fighting out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota) hopes to regain his footing. The South Dakotan is a tough competitor who has triumphed over Dequan Townsend, William Knight, and Alonzo Menifield. With a show-stopping performance, Clark is determined to defeat Jung and position himself for a prosperous 2023.
