Heavyweights Derrick Lewis and Guto Inocente will be putting their four-fight win streaks on the line against one another this July at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale.
Set for July 6 from Las Vegas, the event will see a third meeting between former UFC champions Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn. Also, new TUF winners will be crowned in the light heavyweight and middleweight divisions.
Lewis (10-2) earned his fourth straight victory when he finished Jack May in his Octagon debut in April. Nicknamed “The Black Beast,” Lewis is unbeaten in his last seven fights, winning six and having one no-contest due to accidental strikes.
He holds a 2012 knockout victory over Jared Rosholt, the only loss of the UFC heavyweights career to date.
Inocente (6-2) will be making his debut with the promotion and fighting for the first time since 2012. The 27-year-old defeated Virgil Zwicker in Strikeforce that year, his lone non-finish victory in eight career fights.
