Derrick Lewis post-fight interview

During the post-fight interview, Derrick Lewis explained how losing was not an option for him.

“I appreciate St. Louis for letting me show my naked * tonight,” Lewis said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “I couldn’t let no taxi cab driver from Brazil beat me. This is my first time ever hearing of that guy.

Ain’t no way I could let someone like that beat me. I’m going to sit my Black * down for a second. I’m getting too old for this shit, I’m in my prime, but you didn’t see that shit. You don’t see too many almost 40 year olds doing that shit like that”.
