Many consider the MMA veteran to be one of the most powerful strikes in UFC history. ‘The Black Beast’ has an incredible MMA record of (25-7) and is only one of two men to defeat UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in the UFC.

As Lewis prepares to win the interim title at UFC 265, we decided to take a look at what song the fighter would walk out to. In his last 3 fights against Ilir Latifi, Aleksei Oleinik, and Curtis Blaydes, the fighter walked out to the same song.

That song was ‘Tops Drop’ by rapper Fat Pat. This song was released back in 1998 and was a part of Fat Pat’s debut album. Fat Pat was an American rapper who died at the age of 27, just a month before his album came out.

Walk-out songs are very important, as they showcase the fighter’s personality. Therefore, whatever walk-out song a fighter chooses affects his as well as his opponents’ mindset. Do you think Lewis will walk out to ‘Tops Drop’ when he faces Gane at UFC 265?

What to expect from the UFC 265 fight between Derrick Lewis and Cyril Gane?
