Derrick Lewis picks his favorite knockout win
Derrick Lewis after his latest win didn’t seem to be that happy as he said that he is still thinking about his last loss against Ciryl Gane in his hometown Houston at UFC 265.
“It means something, I guess, because of all the greats that were here before me,” Lewis said in his post-fight press conference. “But it doesn’t change anything, because there’s still a lot of other guys that are active and have been doing pretty good as well.”
“I preferred to get the win in Houston [at UFC 265] than here in the APEX, so it didn’t really erase anything. I’m still going to be thinking about [the Ciryl Gane loss] late at night.”
Derrick also said he was happy to get the chance to punch Chris who is a police officer.
“That was for Rodney King,” Lewis said. “I’m fighting a police officer, man. Come on, man. That’s the only time you get a chance to punch a police officer in the mouth and get away with it, and then he gets up and shakes your head? Sh*t, that was a great feeling, man.”
Derrick Lewis was then questioned about his most favorite knockout to which he replied pretty quickly by saying that he loves the Alexander Volkov knockout.
“I like the [Alexander] Volkov knockout [at UFC 229],” Lewis said. “That was pretty clutch because I was getting my cheeks clapped that whole fight, and it was good that I came in the last round — and it was a Russian guy, so it was an American going against a Russian, and I love all the Rocky movies. So basically that’s how Rocky used to fight, where he’d get whooped — damn near the whole fight he’d get whooped — then the music starts playing, then his wife starts screaming, then he’d get the knockout.”
“So basically that’s how it was, and it was just perfect.”
