Derrick Lewis never has shied away from speaking his mind out. In a recent interview with FULL SEND reporter, the Black Beast let his feelings be known about the UFC boss Dana White presenting Kyle from the NELK Boys with a band of cash.
Dana White went viral recently after he gifted Kyle from the NELK Boys, a whopping $250k for his birthday. The NELK boys and UFC president have shared a very close relationship so much so that their merchandise, FULL SEND is in business with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Dana endorses many of their merch. The internet did not go easy on Dana and his friends after the birthday video came out.
Derrick Lewis is now fighting at UFC 277 and ahead of the fight was interviewed by FULL SEND reporter. When asked how the fighter was doing, Derrick replied with, “I’m doing pretty good but not better than you, man. I seen lil birthday gift, man. Sh*t I was jealous, I ain’t gon lie.” Shawny Mack had to correct Lewis that it was not him who received the gift but Kyle from the NELK Boys. The FULL SEND reporter then said the NELK boys should give Derrick some money or a deal with their booze, Happy Dad.
