Derrick LeWIS is coming off of a loss to champion Daniel Cormier and seeking to become at the search for a return trip. A victory over Junior dos Santos at Wichita will be a big move in the ideal direction.
After failing to regain the belt from Stipe Miocic at 20 17, dos Santos, plus a former UFC heavyweight champion, spent a time fighting with a UFC Anti-Doping Policy violation. He was discovered to be innocent of ingesting a substance that was prohibited. Dos Santos was one of Brazilian fighters found to have ingested a supplement which was tainted by including banned ingredients not divulged on the label.
Just like LeWIS, dos Santos will be expecting to find another crack. He already has backtoback victories over Blagoy Ivanov and Tai Tuivasa into his charge since his return to the Octagon. Adding a victory over LeWIS would border him closer to the belt.
