The ‘Black Beast’ Derrick Lewis takes on what so far has been an unstoppable Frenchmen in Ciryl Gane for the interim UFC Heavyweight strap at UFC 265 this weekend.
The Houston local will set out to bring home the gold in his hometown and there is plenty of fireworks in store.
When you combine the unpredictability of a Lewis fight, the debate over whether Gane can be stopped and the anticipation of some hopefully classic Derrick Lewis moments, it is a must watch event!
In true ‘Black Beast’ fashion, the boys from The Run It Back Podcast look back at the top 5 classic Derrick Lewis moments.
Break out the French bread sticks, spread some butter on them and let’s gobble these up.
5. “If I wasn’t a fighter…. I’d be doing porn stuff”
When asked in a UFC on Fox Interview on what he would be doing if he wasn’t a fighter, Lewis responded with “I’d be doing that porn stuff”.
4. Sh*t Myself
Post fight interview at UFC Fight Night 110, Lewis was asked about a body shot that looked brutal during the fight, his response… “The body shot only hurt cause I didn’t want to shit myself on national TV”.
3. Night, Night Lewis
Lewis went to sleep, but not in the way we usually see in the UFC.
At the UFC Fight Night 90 post fight press conference and after beating Roy Nelson, the “Black Beast’ decided it was time for a nap and took it during the presser!
2. Don’t Mess With Popeye’s Chicken
At the UFC 226 presser, Lewis sitting next to DC seemed to have some beef with the champ.
Asked why he has beef with DC, his response “DC disrespected Popeye’s chicken’.
1. My Balls Was Hot
The moment that many would say propelled Lewis further into the fans hearts was not only with his last second KO of Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 but more so his post fight interview where he started stripping off his pants.
When asked by Rogan what he was doing, the classic line came quickly. “My balls was hot”!
Whichever way the fight goes this weekend, we are always guaranteed of some quality viral Derrick lewis moments either in the ring or via his instagram account.
