UFC Fight Night 205: Curtis Blaydes meets Chris Daukaus

The heavyweight division continues to garner the spotlight in the UFC as top-10 heavyweights Curtis Blaydes and Chris Daukaus meet in Columbus, Ohio.

Blaydes (15-3-0, 1NC), 30, sits in the No. 4 slot after a big win over Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC 266 last September. After seeing No. 3 Derrick Lewis lose to Tai Tuivasa at UFC 271, Blaydes knows a big win is an opportunity to move up.

Meanwhile, the No. 7 Daukaus (12-4-0), 32, gets a second chance to move into the top-5. He previously lost to Derrick Lewis at UFC Vegas 45.
