HOUSTON – Derrick Lewis respects Ciryl Gane , but he might not necessarily be a big fan of his style. Lewis, a former UFC heavyweight title challenger, is gearing up to fight once again for a title, but this time of the interim variety. Lewis (25-7 MMA, 16-5 UFC) takes on Gane (9-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) in a championship bout that headlines Saturday’s UFC 265 at Toyota Center. Lewis finds the Frenchman to be an honorable foe, but that doesn’t mean he likes the way he fights. “It’s not really (that I don’t) have cardio for five rounds, (it won’t) be exciting for five rounds because he is a boring fighter,” Lewis told MMA Junkie at the UFC 265 media day on Wednesday
