It looks like Derrick Lewis will get to throw down in his home city once again when he faces the streaking Tai Tuivasa . A fight between Lewis (26-8 MMA, 17-6 UFC) and Tuivasa (14-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) is in the works for UFC 271, which takes place Feb. 12 at Toyota Center in Houston. Two people with knowledge of the booking recently informed MMA Junkie of the matchup but asked to remain anonymous since the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
