Derrick Lewis provided us with another highlight reel knock out from pretty much nowhere. What Derrick Lewis lacks in technique and skill set he more than makes up for in brute strength and willpower. The “Black Beast” found himself in multiple precarious positions during the fight, but managed to will himself to victory. Lewis stunned Marcin Tybura multiple times before putting him away. In the third round, Lewis stunned Tybura with a big left hand and ended up finishing the fight.
“I just believed in myself,” Lewis said. “I just knew I had to touch him one more time and that was it.”
Lewis’ one of the kind personality shined in the post-fight press conference once again. This was Lewis’ first win since losing to Mark Hunt in June of 2017. Lewis was seen most recently rescuing people during Hurricane Harvey floods in Houston.
