In the main event of UFC Vegas 65, Derrick Lewis will go one on one against Sergey Spivak. During the press meeting ahead of the event The Black Beast cornered himself while trying to make a joke.
During the interview, a female interviewer asked him about his Instagram account as she was unable to find his account. In response, Derrick explained that his account has been banned because people have been reporting every video he posted. So the interviewer apologized for turning the mood down before asking the next question. Responding to the apology Derik said, “You are a woman, so I expect that women do that, no matter how good are things going in a relationship they always pull a rabbit out of the hat…so go ahead”
Lewis has been on a bad track record recently, losing both of his matches in 2022. His last bout was devastating where he lost via knockout in the first round. Derrick would be looking forward to an empathetic comeback when he enters the octagon this weekend.
