UFC Results Tonight: On Saturday night, Derrick Lewis had better things to do than spend 25 minutes in the Octagon. Within minutes of their UFC Fight Night headliner in Las Vegas, “The Black Beast” knocked out Chris Bauhaus. Lewis was a slight underdog against the more mobile Daukaus, but he showed why he’s one of the sport’s most frightening punchers at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

With his rapid and accurate combination of boxing, Daukaus stormed through his first four UFC battles. He used a more systematic approach against Lewis’ hilariously overpowering opponent, which succeeded for a few minutes. To chip away at Lewis’ foundation, Daukaus used leg strikes. Lewis chased Daukaus, blocking off his escape routes. Daukaus was getting closer to the fence by the minute.

Lewis (26-8, 1 NC) pounced on his opponent with haymakers that shook him. Daukaus (12-4) demonstrated an admirable ability to take punishment as he searched for an escape path. In the clinch, Daukaus retaliated with a precise multi-punch combination. Unfortunately for Daukaus, this combination left him vulnerable to significant retaliation. Daukaus was left in a heap on the mat as Lewis served up precisely that. At 3:36 in Round 1, the referee declared the game over.

Lewis celebrated his 13th UFC knockout, the most in any UFC class, with an unconventional and unsanitary celebration. After removing it from his shorts, the two-time UFC heavyweight championship challenger tossed his cup to the crowd. A dubious audience member leapt from his seat to retrieve Lewis’ soiled cup.

Lewis now holds the record for most knockouts in UFC history, surpassing Vitor Belfort and Matt Brown. Light heavyweight contender Thiago Santos, who has 11 dolls in the Octagon, is the only active contender.

Lewis also stated that he would like a third shot at UFC gold, but not at the expense of a five-round battle.

“Getting a title bout would be fantastic. Please get in touch with me if they could amend that regulation and make it a three-round championship match. Don’t call my phone if you don’t know who I am.”
