    He will be in firm control of most knockouts in UFC history. He is currently tied with Matt Brown at 12. An absolutely awesome feat

    Where do you list Lewis on the top 10 HW of all time?

    He holds some really good wins against the likes of Roy Nelson, Gabriel Gonzaga, Francis Ngannou, Marcin Tybura, Alexander Volkov, Ilir Litifi, Aleksei Oleinik, Curtis Blaydes, Travis Browne, Blagoy Ivanov...etc etc

    He has to be top 10 of all time at this point? Regardless of his unorthodox style

    Did you think he was going to win any of his big name fights?

    Just because Gane is from the same place as you doesn't mean it's not going to happen :rolleyes:

    that is a terrible comparison

    Tank has less wins in his career than Lewis has KOs in the UFC

    Big fan of Derrick, but he is hard to rank all time. His wins and KO's sure put him in the conversation, but his fights sometimes consist of him getting outclassed until he catches the other fighter slipping and gets the KO. Definitely an anomaly

    It's weird. On one hand I love BB, but on the other I have been on the edge of embarrassment in watching some of his performances, and lack of technique.

    It's strange to watch a dude with bar room brawling style always be one shot away from ending anyone he fights, even guys with superior technique and stamina.

    He grew up street fighting and was the toughest guy in the yard in prison. He uses that experience well in the cage.

    I give him really really small chance of doing that.He managed too catch Volkov though but at the end after being shut for whole fight and as we saw Gane is more technical and quicker than Volkov,doubt he can land on him

    Lewis is a perfect example of not being a supremely great fighter despite the KO records. He's just a wild brawler who very often is getting worked until he suddenly wins. He would be a champ that I don't know if you could truly call "the best heavyweight in the world".

    I believe Lewis has a great chance in KOing Gane

    Guys I'd put ahead of him in no particular order.

    Stipe
    Ngannou
    DC
    Cain
    JDS
    Werdum
    Overeem
    Arlovski
    Hunt
    Mir
    Big Nog
    Fedor
    Lesnar
    Barnett
    Couture

    Guys where he is arguably in line with:

    Cro Cop
    Sylvia
    Carwin
    Rothwell
    Bigfoot
    Kharitinov

    When Gane beats Lewis, he will have 4 wins in 8 months against JDS, Rozenstruik, Volkov and Lewis.
    With 3 years of MMA training.

    I see Lewis catching Gane but hard to say with Gane's foot speed difference.
