Derrick Lewis’s returns to the cage Saturday at UFC Fight Night 185. His last performance set a record in the UFC heavyweight division.

The former UFC title challenger became the man with the most knockouts in divisional history after recording his 11th octagon stoppage. Lewis (24-7 MMA, 15-5 UFC) picked up the record-setting finish back in August, putting away veteran Aleksei Oleinik in the second round of their main event clash at UFC Fight Night 174 in Las Vegas.
