Pesta to Face Lewis at UFC 192

 

With Anthony Hamilton withdrawing from his UFC 192 matchup against Derrick Lewis in Houston on October 3, the Czech Republic's Viktor Pesta will step in to battle "The Black Beast" in a heavyweight bout at Toyota Center this fall.

Tickets for UFC 192, which is headlined by the UFC light heavyweight title fight between Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson, are on sale now.

Owner of a 10-1 pro record, Pesta rebounded from the lone loss of his career against Ruslan Magomedov in May of 2014 to hand Konstantin Erokhin his first loss since 2012 in their January bout. In Lewis, he'll face a hometown favorite who has won six of his last eight, with all victories coming by way of knockout.
