Since the start of the bout, ‘The Black Beast’ was clearly dominating the match. He exploded on Daukaus with right hooks, leading to a knockout to end the matchup. With this knockout, he has amassed a total of 13 knockouts and now holds the title for most KOs in UFC. While Matt Brown and Vitor Belfort are second with 12 knockouts each.

After winning the bout, he celebrated in his signature style. Consequently, after the clash, he attended a post-fight press conference in which he shared his opinion on Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane.

He said, “I really don’t care. Really, I don’t care who wins. Ciryl, I guess he’s a good dude. You know he’s a likable guy. You know I couldn’t find anything wrong with him. Um, his personality-wise, you know. Outside of fight, he seemed like a pretty cool dude. Ngannou, on the other hand, he can kiss my a*s. He seemed like a di**head 24/7, so f**k ’em.”

The current heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou and interim champion Ciryl Gane will fight on UFC 270 on January 22, 2022, at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Additionally, Derrick has squared off against both the fighters before.
