On Saturday, Aug. 8, the UFC returned to the Apex in Las Vegas for its 32nd event on ESPN+. The event once again featured no fans in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the night’s main event, heavyweight knockout artist Derrick Lewis collided with submission specialist Aleksei Oleinik. The former title challenger Lewis entered the headlining affair riding a two-fight winning streak. Russia’s Oleinik had also won two straight, most recently defeating former champion Fabricio Werdum.
