Lewis-Parry (7-0-1-2NC) could be entering the UFC while winning just two of his last five bouts, with those wins coming against Alain Ngalani and Ibrahim Elsawi. Lewis-Parry is also the current Abu Dhabi Warriors Heavyweight Champion, defeating the aforementioned Elsawi to win the gold at ADW 5. Lewis-Parry has picked up seven wins as a professional MMA fighter and five of them have come by way of KO/TKO. Lewis-Parry hasn’t fought much top level talent as a professional MMA fighter, with his opponents overall record in professional MMA being 13-42-0. 

There is no word yet as to when Lewis-Parry will make his promotional debut or whom that bout is going to come against. Lewis-Parry will enter a weight class currently ruled by Daniel Cormier, who defends the gold against Stipe Miocic this weekend at UFC 241.
