UFC Fight Night: Full card, start time & where to watch as Derrick Lewis battles Rodrigo Nascimento

There is a big heavyweight contest brewing in St Louis this weekend as Rodrigo Nascimento takes on UFC veteran Derrick Lewis.

Nascimento is unbeaten in his last four bouts in the UFC as he continues to forge his path in the division.

Last November, the 31-year-old improved his record to 11-1-1 courtesy of a unanimous decision victory over Don’Tale Mayes.

That success took Nascimento to three straight wins in the UFC and the matchmakers have decided to throw him into the main event picture of a Fight Night card.

The Brazilian’s next test comes against an experienced opponent in Derrick Lewis. While the 39-year-old may have lost three of his last four outings, the UFC veteran still holds the record for the most knockout wins with the organisation.

Lewis is a two-time UFC heavyweight championship title contender, last competing for the belt back in 2021 against Ciryl Gane. On that occasion, Lewis suffered a third-round TKO defeat.

There question marks over Lewis’ ground game and cardio. Then again, Nascimento wasn’t overly impressive in his last three victories with two of them going to a split decision.

Nevertheless, this is a big opportunity for both men to make an impact in the headline bout of the evening.

This Saturday’s UFC Fight Night event begins at 7pm ET and 12am BST. Main event cage walks are expected at around 10pm ET and 3am BST.

Fans in the UK can watch the action unfold live on TNT Sports. American viewers can tune into the event on ESPN+. Below is the full fight card.
