The UFC made its return to Houston, Tx for UFC 192. Opening the show, Houston’s own Derrick Lewis. Lewis, taking on Viktor Pesta, started the fight off pretty slow. Pesta was content with pushing Lewis up against the cage and looking for the take down; the majority of the first, Lewis was on his back. The second round was a repeat of the first, until about 30 seconds were left in the round. Lewis was able to land some big strikes, but Pesta was saved by the bell. Going into the third, Pesta didn’t seem to have the energy to keep Lewis at bay and get the takedown. After a nice sprawl, Lewis was able to land on top, and land the massive strikes that “The Black Beast” is known for throwing. Derrick Lewis earned a much needed win in his home town.
