Fikrlar

  • Just one on the chin and French boy No mas!

  • He is african as well

  • Y'all are sleeping on Frannis? He sleeps this dude.

  • Cereal Game has a tough matchup ahead of him.

  • I don’t think this lady has seen derricks insta

  • It's almost annoying. Lewis and Gane look like such great guys! It is very hard to like one more than the other personality wise. big change from all the trashtalk of the lighweight division

  • long live the black beast

  • If Lewis can get inside on Gane it’s over ...Goodnight

  • That’s the nicest shirt I’ve seen on the Black Beast

  • Bro fr idk why but Derick Lewis' resting face always looks like he's planning something

  • Derrick the Black Beast > Cereal Gane

  • Ciryl Gane will Jab his face off from a distance all 5 rounds... only way Lewis wins is if he lands one big bomb that knocks ciryl out cold or rocks him very badly which is very possible.

  • Greedy food stamp criminal fighter.

  • A mixture of humour, polite mannerisms and a deep dark evil streak 😂 BLACK BEASTT

  • Gane is going to be tagging Lewis up all fight then in the last minute get put out cold courtesy of the nukes in Lewis’s hands

  • Hope Derrick tears gale up

  • Play in the sand agagagaga

  • Francis need a new manager fr

  • UK media has such better disposition and integrity. Much respect

  • Francis Ngannou deserves more money

  • People crying that this hasnt happened before forgot the UFC lost crowd revenue for a year?

  • Lmaoooooo derrick its the only human who can joke about Ngannou

  • I like this blcak man

  • Derek is a classy man for not scoping more Carol

  • Francis is gonna absolutely kill lewis without a doubt

  • Please have her do most interviews she's so well spoken.

  • Fool pay in d sand were did u pay

  • Conor: "i'm gonna go fight mayweather" Dana: "Conor is still the champ" Khabib: "i'm retired" Dana: "khabib is still the belt holder" Francis: " i wanna fight in september" Dana: "stripped! interim fight in a month!" this sport is a joke

  • Just imagine Francis vs Lewis Nevermind...

  • Play in the sand, that´s a dig...

  • bro looks slimmer

  • anyone notice derick lewis looks like real life requis fights like him too

  • Can this guy can really beat Francis Ngannou?? I don't think this guy is playing with fire

    • @Jms Tdb stipe did also but look what happened to him in the rematch and lewis would lose worser then stipe in the rematch

    • Well he already did before

  • Derrick "I'm just here for the free food" Lewis 😂

  • Gane will be victorious.

  • I’m French I love ciryl Gane but Lewis is so sympaphatic … Good luck 🍀 guy’s

  • Lewis wanted to release his beast for sure

  • Dereck is mad humble 😂

  • Caroline Pearce still hot as ever!.

  • My dude said "I can't go...weeze off" I think he got the gist of the lady's question but just put it down it being an English expression. Hilarious.

  • He's going to pay for that comment in blood when they fight.

  • GOAT

  • I used to hate Lewis so much. Now I like him a lot coz he's a good man who takes care of his family.

  • What is the womans name?

  • Lmao

  • he sound lyke my ict teacher who could even be asked to speak lol

  • Umm "That dress may've ignited Dezzy's nether regions..". DANNA??

  • Go on Derek The Black Beast Lewis! Impossible to not like. Bless! 🏆

  • Unfortunately Cyril Ganes a bad match for Lewis . Bit to mobile and will be able to box his way to victory . I think Lewis has a good chance against ngannou though especially if they started swinging

    • @Victor Lugosi 👊🏿money maker right there

    • 5 rounds of avoiding land mines is hard.n

    • Lewis is gonna knock him out in the 3rd

    • undefeated means glass chin! Derrick will put him away in 1 hit!

    • Derrick will take him down and submit him.

  • We need derrick vs tuivasa

  • His ballz was hot.

    • "I understand" - Some bloke.

  • Francis is a coward hes scared to fight lewis so he made his manger pull out for him.

  • Derek my food was hot Lewis

  • Caroline was like this Britsh televison we are not in the hood 😂

  • Laura Sanko💗 vs Caroline Pearce💗 Grappling Match! Make it Happen Dana !!

  • Its really weird the ufc gave full years to jones miocic and cormier and they put a interim on francis when its not been a year. More interesting but the diff of treatment is weird

    • Francis said he was gonna fight often and then... Disappear. Roidgannou is perfectly healthy but he needs time to lower his PEDS to not pop up on the tests

    • It might be to soon and it’s UFC just forcing there hand. But Dana said he doesn’t want this Division held up anymore it’s meant to be an exciting Division at the top and the few years it hasn’t been

  • Derick ‘Covington’ Lewis

  • I know it’s BT but it’s always nice to see a British presenter

  • Derrick Lewis: " I don't care about the fights and belts they should just give me food and money"

    • I Have No Respect or dignity for any Black man(Derrick lewis)who makes jokes and talks trash about the motherland Continent of africa.

    • 😂😂😂😂😂 this comment was great

    • @JesusPaid4You 2 hail Zeus! King of the gods

    • @Jason Boy "food and money"

    • People don't fight for free lmao

  • He's literally not even fazed about hardy lol so funny

    • It’s the complete opposite when Lewis called stipe punch drunk. Stipe shut down and couldn’t stop talking about it

  • Black beast the only one that can get away with saying "He playin in the sand" When its comes to Francis😂😂 🐐

    • What that means? Asking for a friend in Mexico

    • @hamdi atasoy there's a reason why lefties are hated. Even tried to cancel Kevin Hart 🤣 Steve Harvey too. Intolerant little pigs.

    • Well said

    • I Have No Respect or dignity for any Black man(Derrick lewis)who makes jokes and talks trash about the motherland Continent of africa.

    • @Gentleman Gaz the media would love that. The media over exaggerates peoples reactions. Because I guarantee the moment people put their phone down for work, to eat they completely forget whatever controversial thing they saw 5 mins ago.

  • Mister T.

  • Not intelligent enough to be champion for long. Yeah right funny blackman.

    • @Patroclus I looked up his name to check. He's definitely a neckbeard.

    • Shut up incel

  • He's Super Ok

  • Gotta stay hard pog

  • Derrick “Nuketown” Lewis 😂

  • stipe fought equivalent once a year, no interim belt. Francis holds it for 3 months, and what, interim belt ? Dana a hater for that one.

    • @DeadlyfistzZz good point, Nunez has no challenger and this makes her fights sell a little, that's why Francis was pushed for Lewis fight. It's not hate ,it is just about business.

    • An interim brings more attention and hype to the Francis fight 😑😑😑🤦 but Francis wants to go play in the sand so they moved on

    • He just wanted it to be the main event cuz nunez dosen't really sell

  • Ngannou knows what bad for him.

  • Francis would KO Lewis, he has upped his game since the loss to the Stipe in their first fight

    • @Al R Lewis still the same, flat footed, praying on that right hand lol that’s about it

    • so has Lewis. That surgery has really helped him be more mobile

  • I hope Black Beast wins that belt

    • He’s pretty quick and witty for a guy who’s “dumb”…and he’s a funny, goofy dude who isn’t serious all the time but behind the scene I’m sure he handles his business and gets his 💰 but he’s not gonna ask some astronomical price of 30 million for a fight like Jones did… and Jones knew he wouldn’t get that, basically his way of avoiding the Francis fight.

    • @GOPareTerrorists lmao who cares, he is just a good dude and humble. Love derrick

    • @GOPareTerrorists nah he just doesn't give a sh*t about how much he gets paid...

    • @GOPareTerrorists lol. Sad but true. Cowboy really worked like a cow. Sad truth. Well I hope he got paid well from the Conor fight even though he got KO'd easily

  • This man is an absolute legend lol.

    • @John Abraham the big black dude and in the octagon and in life in general

    • Which legend and at where???

  • Would love to see derek Lewis on hotboxin

  • the man changed his phone number multiple times because people asking him for money, that all lead to him getting get this free food

  • I surely believe him coming for the free food 😅

  • Lewis is probably the only person in the HW division that Francis is scared off

    • @GoatLib not scared but more aware.

    • I Have No Respect or dignity for any Black man(Derrick lewis)who makes jokes and talks trash about the motherland Continent of africa. This is nothing new, Stephen A Smith is the latest addition to this. These people love to talk trash about the continent of africa. I have no dignity or Respect for black people that do this.

    • @GoatLib 😂😂😂😂😭😭😭😭

    • Not a chance.

    • All the MMA experts here, lol. Sure, Francis gets worried when it comes to Lewis. He wanted to fight Jones because Jones is physically weaker. He knew that he'll easily dominate Jones and also, Jones is way past his prime. If he fought Francis, he'll be brutally knocked out. Lewis is the type of the guy doesn't care about belts or reputation. He just wants to beat people and seriously, these type of people are the scariest cauz they got nothing to lose. Lewis has ko power same as Francis. So Francis is not going to take any chances fighting this guy again.

  • A hundred percent sure that if Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis fights again, it'll be nowhere near as the last time and Francis will most likely knock Derrick out this time.

    • No chance Francis would ko Lewis, he is still scared of big lewis

    • I think Derick wins

    • @Happy Larry 100% --- Most likeley ----- Maybe xD

    • @ThomasMueller999 Francis is a better version that he was before 🤣 and Lewis is the same flat footed crappy fighter, he hope that right hand lands before Francis touches him

    • @ThomasMueller999 Haha Derrick will be KO'ed within the first 3 mins. Francis isn't Curtis Blaydes lol he'll obliterate Lewis

  • Legendary

  • Can’t wait for this one
