Saturday night at UFC Fight Night New Orleans, Derrick Lewis gets a chance to avenge a loss against fellow Louisiana native, Shawn Jordan, in his hometown.
Jordan handed Lewis his first loss in what some say was a controversial decision, a few weeks short of five years their upcoming fight. Lewis has stated he knocked Jordan out at the end of the first round, but with the bell sounding, and extra time given, Jordan was able to recover and get a decision win. Jordan’s side of the story was that Lewis hit him with some illegal shots to the back of the head.
Derrick Lewis and Shawn Jordan headline the prelims portion of the Fight Night card, which will be shown on Fox Sports 1.
