The Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis fight was supposed to bring fireworks, just days after the July 4th holiday. However, it was one of the worst — and boring — fights of all-time.

Lewis received the unanimous decision over Ngannou at UFC 226 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The judges had the score 29-28, 29-28, and 30-27.

Neither fight suffered any significant damage. The fight went the distance, as neither competitor seemed to be willing to trade shots in the middle of the octagon.

The 33-year-old “The Black Beast” improved to 20-5 in his MMA career. This was his first decision win since he defeated Roy Nelson at UFC Fight Night 90.

In between these two decision wins, he had knocked out four straight competitors. Lewis only has four decision wins in his career — but only two within the UFC.

Lewis is on a two-fight win streak since his UFC Fight Night 110 loss to Mark Hunt.

The 31-year-old “The Predator” fell to 11-3 in his MMA career. He has lost back-to-back bouts, as he also lost to Stipe Miocic via decision at UFC 220.

All three of his losses have come from going the distance. He also lost to Zoumana Cisse at 100% Fight.

Since signing with the UFC, he’s 6-2.
