Derrick Lewis References WWE's Undertaker After UFC Knockout vs. Curtis Blaydes

Derrick Lewis pulled off a huge upset on Saturday, knocking out Curtis Blaydes in the main event at UFC Vegas 19 in the second round.

Yet not even Lewis could believe Blaydes was truly down after he rocked him with a vicious uppercut. Lewis jumped right on Blaydes and started to land a few more blows to the head before the referee pulled him off. Asked why he continued fighting when Blaydes was down, Lewis referenced WWE star Undertaker.

Lewis entered the Octagon as a +320 underdog (bet $100 to win $320) and quickly proved it was a mistake to undervalue him. That's now the fourth straight victory for Lewis, and his second consecutive via knockout, after dropping back-to-back bouts to Daniel Cormier and Junior dos Santos in 2018 and 2019.


Blaydes hadn't lost since facing Francis Ngannou in 2018. Now he's on the wrong side of UFC history thanks to a knockout that stunned him, Lewis and plenty of bettors around the world.

Seriously. Well said.

Lewis is a fighter who only would be this successful at HW. He gets lit up in so many of the fights where he ends up winning.
Officially 8-2 in sig bets. *pats back* 6 time A league champion. :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold: :gold:

What am I missing here? Why is heavyweight power bad?

Is lack of power in flyweight a good thing? Is the inverse also true?

Explain these things to me damnit

Because shit fighters like Derrick Lewis can pull out victories against significantly better competition and be in line for another title shot.

If Lewis is bad, Ngannou is atrocious.

I'm surprised Blaydes survived that 1st punch Lewis landed at the beginning of the fight. Lewis might be sloppy at times but his timing and execution is high level. He has that killer instinct, he defends the takedown well and can just get up. He is what Brett Rogers could have been if not for Fedor!

Stupid post is stupid.

He beat those fighters, therefore he is better than they are at fighting.

By your logic every great fighter ever is a shit fighter, they just beat "significantly better competition" repeatedly.

Meow got it right away, maybe you should ask him.

Though what should I expect from the guy who couldn't understand Fantasy Draft (twice)?

100% Some fighters train technique all their lives but just dont have that brain function of a predator.. Lewis is a beast and has that instant killer instinct with god given dna power to put these paper technique people 6 feet under. Lewis is the man you want on your side in a battle he fights for the kill and just instinctively know how to survive...

Nganou sensed that and got scared to walk close

Derrick Lewis is goat and pbells prob just mad at these alphas

Lewis is a goofy odd ball but the guy is Serious scary.

He timed the shit out of that uppercut, even seems he had to re-adjust it.
