Lewis, who hails from nearby Houston, has been anxious to fight close to home for quite some time and now he’ll get his chance while also seeking redemption after a loss in his last bout as well as an injury that kept him out of a matchup against Fabricio Werdum in October.

As for Tybura, he actually just lost to Werdum by unanimous decision in November so he’ll undoubtedly be looking to return to the win column while facing a real heavy hitter in Lewis next year.
