UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis gave a post-fight interview that sent ripples through the sport after earning a second-round knockout of Travis Browne in the main event at UFC Fight Night 105, which unfolded Sunday in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Despite being the No. 9 ranked UFC heavyweight in the world, Browne is best known for his antics outside the Octagon. In 2015, Browne was accused of assaulting his then-wife Jessica Webb, and was suspended by the UFC. Charges were never filed after an investigation yielded no evidence that Browne had done anything wrong, and he was reinstated in the UFC.
So when Lewis was asked about what he thought of Browne after he brought him down, “the Black Beast” took it a step further in the trash talk department.
“I just knew I had a bigger heart than him,” Lewis said. “He call himself a man, but he likes to put his hands on women. So, forget that guy. I got much more heart than he has. Where’s Ronda Rousey’s fine ass at?”
Lewis went on to say that Browne’s kicks were nothing more than a laxative. “I just gotta do No. 2, that’s all,” he said. “It’s not really hurt from the kick. I just got a boo boo.”
And from the sound of it, Lewis is ready to give his body a rest from all the, er, exercise he’s been getting. “I don’t want to hear nothing about not fighting in the next three months. Plus, all the training and all the sex I’ve been getting, my body needs some time off.”
