UFC Fight Night - Lewis Vs. Browne

UFC Fight Night with the heavy hitting heavyweights. Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne have a combined 29 knockouts with 17 coming in the UFC. It would be surprising to not see a knockout in this one. Derrick Lewis comes into the fight on a 5 fight win streak with 4 victories in 2016. Travis Browne comes into the fight on 2 fight losing streak and a combine 2-3 record in his last 5 fights. This is a fight you don't want to miss if you're into knockouts. The co-main event could see two guys who are on their way out of the company. Johny Hendricks versus Hector Lombard have a combined 11 losses but both have struggled lately and in danger of getting cut. Hendricks struggles have included problems cutting weight and 1-4 in his last 4 fights. A move up to middleweight should help the weight cut problems, but will he be able to compete at a higher weight class after struggling at welterweight in 2016? Hector Lombard came into the UFC with a lot of hype from Bellator.At the time, he was labeled as the best prospect outside of the UFC. Before joining the UFC Lombard only had 2 losses his entire career, but has 4 losses and a suspension during the time with the company. The fight benefits Hendricks to take it to the ground because his power has appeared to be in decline. Lombard would benefit to keep the fight standing and using his power, with a career 19 knockouts. A fighter on the prelims in an interesting fight is Carla Esparza who is the former champion in the strawweight women's division. UFC Halifax may turn out to be better than UFC 208 and can't be less exciting that's for certain.
