Derrick Lewis fights for his first UFC title against France’s Ciryl Gane in the main event of UFC 265. The show is in Houston, which is Lewis’ hometown. The popular heavyweight will be a huge crowd favorite as he attempts to claim the interim belt. Gane is fighting for a title in just his seventh UFC bout. UFC 265 also features former featherweight champion José Aldo in a bantamweight bout against fellow Brazilian Pedro Munhoz. Welterweight title contenders Michael Chiesa and Vicente Luque meet earlier on the pay-per-view portion of the show.
