Derrick Lewis | Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

There will be plenty of gold in the building at UFC 265.

An official poster has been released for the Aug. 7 pay-per-view event, which takes place at Toyota Center in Houston. Featured on the poster are vacant interim heavyweight title contenders Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane, and two-division champion Amanda Nunes, who is set to defend her bantamweight title against Julianna Pena.

Lewis gets his second shot at a UFC belt after falling short against Daniel Cormier at UFC 230. He will have to get past the undefeated Gane to lay claim to his share of the heavyweight crown.

Nunes, currently the best fighter in the world at 145 and 135 pounds, seeks her sixth consecutive successful defense of the bantamweight championship and her eighth straight successful title defense overall. “The Lioness” has not lost a fight since 2014.
