Derrick Lewis Could Renew with UFC with Better Terms after highest knockout record
Derrick Lewis has recorded the highest wins by knockout in UFC history. Lewis is popularly known as 'The Black Beast'.
Derrick Lewis ensured that his performance at UFC291 would leave a lasting impression on fans. He secured a remarkable victory over Marcos Rogerio De Lima, knocking him out in a mere 33 seconds. As a 38-year-old fighter, Lewis's contract with the UFC is coming to an end, but he remains optimistic about renewing it with better terms. Fans are eagerly anticipating Lewis securing a better deal with the UFC.
During the fight, Lewis aggressively attacked De Lima, landing a flying knee that sent the Brazilian fighter to the floor. The referee swiftly intervened, stopping the bout after a short exchange on the ground.
Lewis has earned the title of a 'classic heavyweight' due to his immense knockout power and impressive physique. He is known for his preference for stand-up fighting, often referring to it as "swangin' and banging." Remarkably, he can seemingly withstand grappling and wrestling attempts from opponents while on the bottom position.
After the fight, Marcos Rogério De Lima not only experienced emotional and mental strain but also physical injuries. He revealed, "My teeth are all loose. I can't eat properly. It's a tough moment." Prior to the fight with Lewis, De Lima had won four out of his last five matches, but Lewis put an end to that winning streak.
