Derrick Lewis things

By now we all know what Derrick Lewis brings to the table. You either like it, or you don’t. Lewis is going to come into fight week and be cheeky and affable, claiming to have not really trained and/or not to know his opponent’s name. Then he’s going to either A) Almost lose his fight before winning it or B) Almost win his fight before losing it. Afterward, he’s going to take his pants off. This is pretty much what happened on Saturday against Rodrigo Nascimento, where Lewis ultimately emerged with a third-round TKO win after two-plus round where he flirted with the idea of messing around and losing. He won, whipped off his shorts and fanned the nearly unconscious Nascimento with them before sliding his cup out and tossing it into press row. So, yeah, everything went according to plan … until an MMA “journalist” asked Dana White to sign Lewis’ athletic supporter at the post fight press conference. Ugh. What the hell, you guys.

Plus, Jake Paul and Mike Tyson faced off for the first time this week, while over is Saudi Arabia, the heavyweight boxing match that actually matters in scheduled for this weekend.
