Fans love to watch Lewis in action as his power-punching ability is quite unmatched in the promotion. However, it’s not only his knockouts that make him popular, ‘The Black Beast’ is just as entertaining, if not more, in his post-fight interviews. His famous lines after securing a last-ditch finish against Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 are still something UFC faithful cherish.

Lewis said his ba**s was hot, and that was the reason behind him taking his pants off inside the Octagon after his win. But this was not the only time Lewis said something funny after his fights.

After defeating Curtis Blaydes in his most recent outing, ‘The Black Beast’ said, ‘I like them wrestlers’. Many have claimed that wrestlers are kryptonite for the hard-hitting heavyweight. His loss against Daniel Cormier at UFC 230 was the main reason behind those claims. But Lewis, who showed he has adjusted his game with time, came up with a highlight-reel finish against ‘Razor’.

Will Derrick Lewis get his hands on UFC gold at UFC 265?

Lewis has challenged for the title once in his career already. However, that attempt was unsuccessful, as Cormier outclassed him. But, he has put on enough work to get himself back in the position to challenge for UFC gold again. Fans originally expected him to fight Francis Ngannou. However, timelines didn’t match between ‘The Predator‘ and the UFC.

Hence, the UFC booked ‘The Black Beast’ against Gane, who beat Volkov in his last fight. As the unbeaten ‘Bon Gamin’ has established himself as one of the top prospects of the heavyweight division of the UFC, a fight between him and Lewis will be a magnificent spectacle for the fans. Also, the contest will certainly decide who is the true no. 1 contender for the UFC heavyweight championship.
