Olejnik – slow fighter, especially in the front, however on earth “Boa” lives up to its nickname. From 59 wins to 46 won them submisson, including 6 in the UFC. Especially dangerous strangulation Oleynik.

Lewis is also not the most spirited heavyweight, derrick traditionally dangerous in the rack, being able to send anyone to sleep with one punch, he is not the best protection from takedowns in the UFC, and he’s not the most technical Grappler. However, he is very physically strong fighter, so keep him on the ground is no easy task. Lewis only lost submisson – in the title fight against Daniel Cormier. Lewis was a great heavyweight, unlike Oleinik, “the Black beast” have to drive weight. At the weigh-American was heavier by as much as 17 kg.

Takedown and submission wrestling, the most obvious victory scenario for Oleynik. However, Lewis really vulnerable on the ground only when he’s tired. Last year Olejnik twice lost quick knockouts, and Lewis has all the chances to repeat the success of Alistair Overeem and Walt Harris.
