Derrick Lewis is hands down one of the most entertaining fighters in the entire UFC roster. His legend grows beyond the vicious knockouts he comes up with inside the UFC Octagon. Lewis is perhaps the funniest UFC fighter on the mic. Be it a post-fight interview or an interaction with the media, ‘The Black Beast’ always manages to come up with one-liners that fans enjoy.

One such incident took place when Lewis took on fellow heavyweight contender, Travis Browne. At the time, Browne was touted as one of the brightest prospects at the heavyweight division. Also, fans identified Browne as the husband of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey.

The duo clashed in February 2017 in what was a back-and-forth contest where both fighters managed to significantly hurt the other. However, it was Lewis who had the last laugh. He landed one of his signature bombs on Browne and eventually finished the fight with some disgusting ground and pound.

Despite a spectacular win, it was Lewis’s post-fight call out for Browne’s wife that stole the show. ‘Where’s Ronda Rousey fine a** at?” Lewis proceeded to ask during his chat with Brian Stann inside the Octagon.

This was not the only time Lewis showed his affinity for Rousey. A year later, in an interview with TMZ, Lewis said he loves Ronda, despite his wife being present right behind him. Needless to say, as she didn’t like Lewis’s jokes, ‘The Black Beast’ received some shots from his wife.

Will Derrick Lewis finally wear UFC gold at UFC 265?

Lewis viciously knocked out Curtis Blaydes in his last outing. After his win and based on the rankings, UFC fans assumed he would fight Francis Ngannou for the undisputed title. However, it will be the undefeated Gane standing across the Octagon.

Gane is a unique problem for anybody in the heavyweight division with his swift movement and range control. However, Lewis has shown he can end any fight with one clean shot. Hence, fans are buzzed for the match-up. Now, it remains to be seen if Lewis finally gets his hands on UFC gold.
