After knocking out Travis Browne in the main event of UFC Fight Night 105 in Halifax, Canada, Derrick ‘The Black Beast’ Lewis had an interesting octagon interview where he talked about needing to go to the bathroom and needing time off from fighting. He also took the opportunity to lash out at Travis Browne for his domestic violence issues, and of course, he also asked about his crush Ronda Rousey.
After the fight, a more relaxed Lewis joined the folks at UFC Tonight to elaborate a little bit in some of his answers. When asked about needing time off he was clear to say the he just feels like he needs time to clear his minds, and stop thinking about fighting and focus on personal things and family matters.
Gilbert Melendez said he understood Lewis wanted to take 3 months off, but he said he felt he had to ask who he’d like to face next, whenever that may be.
Derek Lewis answered even before Gilbert could finish the question.
