Derrick Lewis vs Aleksei Oleinik Preview
Derrick Lewis enters this bout with a very impressive 23-7-1 career record.
He has figured near the top of the Heavyweight division for years now, winning 11 of his last 14 contests.
Known for his excellent power and striking ability, 18 of his wins have come by way of knockout.
He has been in some solid recent form, earning decision wins over Ivanov and Latifi in the past calendar year.
An undisputed legend of the sport, Aleksei Oleinik enters this bout with a 59-13-1 career record.
He has perfected the art of the submission, forcing his opponents to tap 46 times throughout his career.
His recent form has also been good, earning 2020 wins over Maurice Greene and Fabricio Werdum.
While he is a relatively short favourite at $1.36, it’s tough to look past Lewis here.
He has good speed and takedown defence for his size and should be able to keep this one on the feet.
Oleinik doesn’t tend to fare as well against elite strikers and all it will take is 1 big Lewis strike to drop him.
There’s no question as to my predicted method of victory, knockout all day.
