Curtis Blaydes reigns as the #2 heavyweight contender in the world. One of the most dominant fighters in the history of the division, Blaydes is on a four-fight win streak. He is just one win away from landing a title shot at the heavyweight division.
In just over three years in the UFC, Blaydes has picked up notable victories over the likes of Mark Hunt, Alistair Overeem, Junior dos Santos among others.
According to Sportekz, Blaydes is valued in the excess of $1.5 million. Blaydes’ earning has only increased with each fight. He has headlined multiple UFC Fight Night events. The fight against Derrick Lewis will mark his third straight Fight Night main event.
Curtis Blaydes could be compared to the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov in the heavyweight division. “Razor” likes to rely on his wrestling skills to dominate his opponents. However, his TKO win over former champion dos Santos is proof of his incredible power on the feet.
Be that as it may, Blaydes’ game-plan mostly involves rag-dolling his opponents on the ground. In the 14 professional wins, he has secured 10 stoppage victories inside the Octagon.
“Razor” has only gotten better with each fight. He boasts of an incredible resume with 14 wins in 17 outings inside the Octagon. He has only lost twice, both times against current title challenger Francis Ngannou.
Be that as it may, he continues to dominate the heavyweight division. “Razor” secured 14 takedowns to register the most in the history of the heavyweight division. During his time in college, Blaydes won the NJCAA National Championship and had earlier earned a full scholarship to Northern Illinois University.
