Tai Tuivasa recently said he was down to throw down with Derrick Lewis and he gets his wish, the two will be fighting on February 12th at UFC 271 in Houston.
Tuivasa has had a good run the past couple years, he's won 4 in a row, all KOs, and is fresh off a win over August Sakai. Lewis is fresh off a win over
Chris Daukaus by KO. He will have home cage advantage vs Tuivasa, as the fight is in Houston, but last time out in Houston Lewis did lose vs Gane.
Thiago Santos turns 38 today. He's had an interesting journey as an MMA fighter, and his best run was in 2018 and '19 when in
a period just over 6 months he moved up a weight class, KO'd Anders, Manuwa, and Blachowicz, and got a title shot vs Jon Jones;
he won on one of scorecards, but the others gave it to Jones, so it was really close split decision loss, one judge had it 48-47 Santos,
the others had it the other way.
