UFC on ESPN+ 32 poster revealed: 'A Beast and a Boa' take center stage

A clash of styles will headline the UFC’s Aug. 8 card.

Derrick Lewis faces Aleksei Oleinik in the main event of UFC on ESPN+ 32, which takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Former UFC heavyweight title challenger Lewis (23-7 MMA, 14-5 UFC) snapped a two-fight losing skid with back-to-back decision wins over Blagoy Ivanov and Ilir Latifi.

At the age of 43, Oleinik (59-13-1 MMA, 8-4 UFC) is the oldest heavyweight on the UFC roster, but the submission specialist has won his past two in a row, most recently edging out former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum at UFC 249 in May.

Check out the official poster for the UFC’s Aug. 8 event below:
