Main Card Results | UFC St. Louis

Lewis had success with his strikes early in the second, only to find himself in the clinch again. When he found daylight, he scored, and he was the only one doing so, as Nascimento was seemingly content with holding the Texan in the clinch. With under two minutes left, a failed takedown attempt by Lewis allowed Nascimento to take the back briefly before moving into half guard, where he got off a few elbows.

In the opening minute of the third round, a looping right hand rocked and dropped Nascimento, and after a series of unanswered ground strikes, referee Jason Herzog stopped the fight. The official time was :49 of round three.

With the win, the No.12 ranked Lewis moves to 28-12, 1 NC. The No. 15 ranked Nascimento falls to 11-2, 1 NC.
