The UFC’s #4 ranked heavyweight, Derrick Lewis, just smashed the #10 ranked, Aleksei Oleinik, in the second round of the UFC Vegas 6 main event. Oleinik had some moments with a few takedowns and submission attempts in the first round, but Lewis put a stop to all of that in the second round. Lewis dropped Oleinik with a massive right haymaker, and then rained down heavy ground and pound until the referee had seen enough. This was an impressive showing for Lewis on many levels.

Round 2 - Oleinik wiffs on a front kick, only for Lewis to bum rush him with a flying knee to the chest and a heavy right to knock Oleink to the mat. Lewis unloads with the ground and pound and Oleinik can only cover up before Herb Dean intercedes. Big win for Lewis.
