    Verbal agreements are in place for a heavyweight fight between former UFC champion Junior Dos Santos and Derrick Lewis.

    Two people with knowledge of the situation on Monday told MMAjunkie that the matchup will headline UFC on ESPN+ 4, which takes place March 9 at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan., and streams on ESPN+. The people requested anonymity because the fight has yet to be made official.

    UFC on ESPN+ 4 serves as the UFC’s first event in Kansas. As of now, only two bouts on the card are official.

    Dos Santos (20-5 MMA, 14-4 UFC) will get back to work after an emphatic stoppage of up-and-comer Tai Tuivasa last month at UFC Fight Night 142. It was his second straight win since he was cleared of potential anti-doping suspension when it was revealed a supplement maker he used was producing products tainted with a performance-enhancer.

    Lewis (21-7 MMA, 12-5 UFC) hopes to get back in the win column after falling short against current champ Daniel Cormier this past November at UFC 230. The title shot came after a “Comeback of the Year” win over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229, which upped his winning streak to three fights before the loss to Cormier.

    Junior Dos Santos vs. Derrick Lewis targeted as UFC on ESPN+ 4 headliner in Kansas

    This will be good but Yunior is gonna be tough to KO and that is the only way the beast wins this. The beast most likely get tired and loses a decision.

    Really bad matchup for Lewis. He better close his eyes and swing and pray.

    jds has the quicker hands, the sharper hands, the quicker feet and has a better all round striking approach; that being said his chin is diminished, he doesnt move his head and he is vulnerable when guys come after him...

    lewis as limited as he is on the feet, is the more explosive guy, has the better chin, is the more durable guy.... jds has to pitch a shut out to win...and he doesn't have the off or def skills to do that.
