Given the right matchup, Derrick Lewis is still more than capable of putting on a show.

After testing out his grappling for 10 minutes, “The Black Beast” got back to his bread-and-butter in the UFC on ESPN 56 headliner, stopping Rodrigo Nascimento via third-round technical knockout at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis on Saturday night. By notching his 15th career KO/TKO triumph — a UFC record — Lewis keeps his place in the heavyweight Top 15.

Elsewhere, Tabatha Ricci won for the fifth time in six outings, eking out an ugly split-decision triumph against the returning Tecia Pennington in a preliminary strawweight affair. “Baby Shark” will need to be more impressive if she is to climb the rankings but for now, she retains her spot on the bubble at No. 15.

Finally, Carlos Ulberg can no longer be ignored in the light heavyweight division. The City Kickboxing standout earned his sixth consecutive victory on Saturday night, as he dispatched Alonzo Menifield in just 12 seconds. With the longest active winning streak at 205 pounds, Ulberg makes his debut in the rankings at No. 14.
