    Derrick Lewis is nice , If Ngannou Kos Stipe which he probably will, I can see him getting a title shot and fighting Ngannou again, Lewis is a bad match up for him. That big ass head of his can take a lot of punishment and he's got the Ko power to counter Ngannou coming in. Could be the new champ soon.

    Derrick Lewis is an outstanding power puncher with high fight I.Q who could be champion but he has the wrong attitude. Dude you should WANT to be champion you shouldn't be afraid of five rounds if it's too much then lose a bit of weight and get that cardio on another level up and you should be fine. I swear the only thing holding this guy back is his mind!

    It's kinda funny that Blaydes could have won on striking if he kept it up but he had to go for the one thing literally everyone, especially his opponent was expecting. I get that striking can be dangerous but he had to know that Derrick had been training to uppercut him when he went for the TD all camp long.

  58. Samm Salvey

    Samm Salvey12 days ago

    Love derick Lewis as a fighter , but damn man, grow a brain! What is wrong with these fighters who refuse to use any judgement at all? Why does he say he wont stop until herb dean rips him off? It's not like herb hesitated, it just takes a couple seconds for him to get there. There is absolutely no rule or obligation for a fighter to keep throwing punches after he knows a guy is knocked out. If he didn't know, then that another thing, and I wouldn't blame lewis at all. But it is very bizarre to me to hear fighters say they refuse to stop fighting, even if they know a guy is knocked out. It's like a refusal to use judgement. Ref cant always stop the fight instantly, though they try. Its not herb Dean's "fault". Look, if you know a guy is finished, just stop it's not complicated. Lewis says he cant do that. But I dont think hes trying, really. Seems like hes just decided hes not going to try. People are going to get hurt unnecessarily because of that. They really need to stop feeding g fighters the idea that ONLY the ref can stop the fight. You can choose to stop, it's just you might be taking a bit of a risk to yourself by doing so. They need to stop telling fighters that they're not even supposed to use their own judgement on the octagon. Fighting IS extremely risky in general. To suggest that fighters are incapable of making a judgement call to not keep throwing punches on an unconscious person is just ridiculous. If they can accept the risk of fighting in general, they can accept the risk of not not getting beaten by an unconscious person. They take risks in there all the time, and make judgements the whole fight. They are allowed and should be encouraged to make a judgement call when a fighter is out cold and diesnt need to take any more shots. If we can't trust their judgement in that regard, why trust their judgement to protect themselves at all? To recognize when other fighters are hurt and attack at the right time? Stop making excuses for late blows. At least TRY to judgement, that's all I'm saying

  59. John Smith

    John Smith12 days ago

    Herb even shouted to stop and Lewis DID make a judement right there, to punch an unconscious opponent full power and probably give him permanent brain damage. Talk about showing your character... awful person.

  60. Samm Salvey

    Samm Salvey12 days ago

    @Malik I have competed and I know very well that part of their training is to control themselves. No one goes in there and just loses control and throws wildly until they are physically stopped by the ref. No one. But when it cones to finishes, they make the excuse that they couldn't control it. I accept that it might happen sometimes, but I dont accept complacency with it. The success of all fighters is dependent on their ability to control their emotions, movements, and reactions, and recognize at what point the other fighter is in as well. Mistakes can be made, but I'm just saying, stop accepting complacency that only herb dean could have prevented this. They are trained to recognize when opponents are hurt, I believe they are capable of recognizing when a fighter is knocked out cold. It is the acceptance and perpetuation of the idea that fighters keep fighting until they are forced off, that contributes to incidents like this

  61. Malik

    Malik12 days ago

    You have never competed. When your adrenaline rushes like that you are not thinking straight. So even if you have a brain some people are full of adrenaline and can not think with their full brain because their surviving instinct takes over. Try to understand before judging.

    He's super good at playing mind games. His playful nonchalant attitude is him but he also uses it to troll people. He says people's names wrong on purpose, acts like he can't remember Renzo Gracie's name. He acts like he isn't invested in the game and that he barely trains hard. But in reality, he's a killer and is calculated with his approach. Don't sleep on this man.

    Its the refs job to stop the fight. In the heat of the moment it is hard to tell if a fighter is really out or not. While you are deciding whether to continue hitting them, they can easily turn the tables around on you.
