UFC 192 is set to go down on October 3, 2015 from Houston, Texas, and an intriguing heavyweight showdown has been added to the card today. The UFC has confirmed (Via The Houston Chronicle) that heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Anthony Hamilton will face off in October.

Lewis is 3-2 inside of the Octagon, most recently dropping a brutal TKO loss to Shawn Jordan at UFC Fight Night 68 last June in New Orleans. “The Black Beast” will look to remain relevant in the heavyweight division when he squares off with Hamilton.

Hamilton has also had some trouble in the UFC, currently holding a 2-2 company record. However, he is currently coming off of a decision win over Daniel Omielanczuk at UFC Fight Night 64 last April. “Freight Train” will look to put together a winning streak when he meets Lewis next fall.

UFC 192 is quickly shaping up to be one of the best cards of the year, as it is being headlined by an anticipated light heavyweight title fight between newly crowned champion Daniel “DC” Cormier and former title challenger Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson.

Former light heavyweight champion “Suga” Rashad Evans will also make his long-awaited return against top-contender Ryan “Darth” Bader in a bout that could very well determine the next title challenger at 205 pounds.

However, that is not all as the UFC has announced two more exciting bouts just in the past week. First off, highly-touted bantamweight prospect Julianna Pena will take on Jessica Eye, another bout that could decide a title challenger.

Most recently, it was announced on last night’s edition of UFC Tonight that an oft-rumored bout has finally come to fruition as top welterweights Johny Hendricks, and Tyron Woodley will finally do battle after months of speculation.
