In our main event from yesterday’s (Friday December 9, 2016) UFC Fight Night 102 event from Albany, New York, No. 10-ranked heavyweight Derrick Lewis and No. 15-ranked Shamil Abdurakhimov went to war.
The first three rounds saw Abdurakhimov take advantage of multiple Lewis kick attempts, catching them and taking ‘The Black Beast’ down on multiple occasions. Lewis would get up almost at will every time, throwing and missing often, while Abdurakimov threw little to no strikes at all.
In the fourth round Lewis was able to get the bout to the ground, mount his opponent, and reign down a plethora of ground-and-pound to put Abdurakimov away for the fourth round finish.
