A heavyweight clash is set to main event a UFC Fight Night card in November.
The promotion officially announced the matchup Saturday afternoon.

Lewis (26-10 MMA, 17-8 UFC) will look to get back into the win column after dropping his last two outings against Tai Tuivasa in February and Sergei Pavlovich in July. Lewis’ last victory came against Chris Daukaus in December, a vicious one-round, record-setting knockout finish.
