Derrick Lewis had a big night at UFC Fight Night 185 as he crushed a fellow contender to force himself to the front of the heavyweight queue.

Lewis starched Curtis Blaydes with a huge uppercut in the main event at the UFC Apex to position himself as a bonafide contender for the heavyweight title. But the division has never looked busier and, with the imminent arrival of Jon Jones into the title picture, "The Black Beast's" next assignment is far from certain.

So we picked the brains of our "Spinning Back Clique" panel of John Morgan, Nolan King and Brian "Goze" Garcia to try to work out what could potentially be next for Lewis.

Check out their discussion in the video above, and watch the full episode below.
