  • 'I am the opera of the UFC.' 😅. Actually you are better because you cover my favorite sport. 😘😘😘😘

  • It's 12 not 20, no wonder he didn't believe it....

  • 😂👍💪

  • Idk why but journalists saying "what does this game mean to you?" Just sounds wrong

  • I'd LOVE to see him BEAT Jon Jones

  • After you LOSE to Overeem, who do you want to fight next??

  • I underestimated Derrick Lewis. But Mans got huge Potential, and he's Likeable .

  • Haha something in my throat haha yo

  • Overeem must have really pissed him off he wants him BAD!

  • I repeat myself. A lucky puncher. Curtis was working hard on him but than rushed too much. He should have been a bit more patient imo.

  • "Overeem" After what francis ngannou did to him...I'm sure Derick will actually detach his head from his body with fatality punch! "Finish Him"

  • She's a dime! And very charming.

  • What a loveable creature

  • love this man

  • Derrick "The All American" Lewis

  • How can you not like this guy!?! HOW lol he seems very genuine.

  • UFC’s one punch man.

  • Derrick lewis and khabib are the only fighter whose game plan is known to everyone but no one can stop ...

  • I'm still waiting for him to put Daniel Comier in the corner for disrespecting Popeyes Chicken.

  • Gotta respect a man that provides for his family and loves to fight! Never underestimate big D

  • Why does he want to fight Overeem next? I mean Overeem is old and finished. He should aim higher than that.

  • If this guy comes out with a book! top seller

  • Write that book!

  • He’s not just my favorite because he hails from Texas. He’s original talks from the heart. Unlike Kumar the Owl 🦉

  • Lewis vs Frances

  • There is a reason the beast Lewis is my fav fighter

  • @1:05 Oh honey, you ain't no Oprah.

  • Overeem's chin is gone, A knockout like that from Derrick could be career ending and life altering for him.

  • She wants that Black Beast

  • REAL MAN ! No FAKE ! Real !

  • Lewis vs Jones :D

  • Love ya Lewis but Overeem can't take a punch anymore, being hit by you could be catastrophic for him.

  • I hope he is serious.

  • Derrick's hands are on fire, Curtis thought he dreaming when he woke up in the UFC ghost's club

  • Hadn't Alistair suffered enough? Francis, Alex, Jairzinho.. Now Black Beast wants him too? How many opponent highlight reels does he need to cut for the ufc?

  • Laura "Oprah of the UFC" Sanko

  • Who wants to see him clap overeems cheeks 👏🏻

  • You can tell the girl was into him.......

  • Overreem just lost. Leave that guy alone.

  • Big beast, big heart.

  • The man hears he is tied for most knock outs, “yeah I’d like to fight Overeem next”. Ahh yes ready to break that record.

    • At least he has a solid gameplay for that lol otherwise its throw uppercuts when they come in lol

  • Hed make overeem into the new real life mr.potato head movie

  • Blackedraw

  • When is the Oprah show with Derrick Lewis ?

  • Her eye lashes are longer than her skirt! 😳😳😳

  • Why they end the video there, just when Derrick is talking about clapping them cheeks

  • “I’m the Oprah” 😩🤣🤣 she’s a G

  • Starting to worry about Curtis can he give us an update?

  • Man Lewis keeps it real

  • Some donnys smash records some man are champions.. Derek still could get the belt mma is madness

  • How can anyone dislike this video? Living legend and comedy genius.

  • Why overeem? Doesn’t seem like a substantial enough fight to move his career in a productive direction.

    • I think he's still a little gunshy from when he got housed by DC for the title. I think a part of him doesn't believe he'd be able to beat a Stipe or a Jon Jones.

  • Questions we heard already

  • He's a gem

  • He s good with guys like curtis or overeem or rozenstruick or ngannou but he wouldn t have a chance against miocic

  • This interview is just great.

  • Derrick "Heavy Hearted" Lewis

  • That Popeyes add!😂

  • Congratulations Beast on your TKO Win

  • Oh so youz a restler...? Derrick “I got somethin for ya” Lewis

  • "I'm the Oprah of the UFC" was a good line lol.

  • Derrick lewis thought process "i saw him stiffen like a board and i was like hey thats pretty cool"

  • Them Texas Boyz hit different!!!

  • Gotta admit it, I'm surprised he beat Blaydes.

  • This b just said I'm the opera lol

  • THE MERCENARY 2020 NOW ON AMAZON PRIME ............................

  • Beast aint happy with the trash Overeem was talking so he wants to put his lights out. I can respect that. Stay busy, ko overeem, get paid and then get a title shot

  • Laura sanko is so hot

  • I like derrick Lewis but if he keeps fighting eventually he'll get ko'd the same way he did to curtis

  • This man said I hope he is okay I heard he got up 😂😂😂😂

  • I knew this fight was gonna come down to who won

  • im the Opra of the UFC

  • Blaydes should of seen that, and made some changes . . . walked right into it!

  • i'ma save that for Oprah... lmaooo!!

  • Somebody needs to study why MMA doesn’t work against Derrick Lewis 😂

  • “I’m oiled up”

  • Oprah of the ufc- real humble there 😂

  • Ima save that for Oprah lol

  • This is probably the weakest era in the heavyweight division. Blaydes at number 2 enough said 😕😕

  • la bestia negra tiene poder en las mano inprecionaste este señor es peligroso

  • On extra punches after KO. "He could turn into The Undertaker and sit straight up" 😄

  • Hope the ufc don’t do overeem dirty like that

  • Derrick gotta get oiled up before he claps them cheeks!

  • Lol "I'm the oprah of the ufc"

  • I'm gonna save it for Oprah lol

  • The interviewer said "Im the Opra of the UFC" 🤣🤣😭😭 props to Derrick on the KO & for controlling the interview

  • Title Shot!!! dont care

  • Thought that was Adele

  • Look at the size of his hands compared to the reporters. Got dam

  • I am 100% sure the Overeem fight will happen!

  • Blaydes is the best after Miocic, you people judge the results but you don't see how poor the HW level is right now, People like Lewis and Ngannou are technically embarassing, Lewis won by luck thanks to his pure strenght as usually Ngannou does. Miocic is the only one good HW at the moment, the only one that would have been competitive with the athletes of 15 years ago, he can lose the belt only because a lucky shot, otherwise he'll be champ for a long time

  • Good guy

  • Lewis vs Jones...... sounds like a great fight to me.

  • I like the lightning there.. Pretty cool, like a computer game.

  • UPPERCUT IS THE COUNTER FOR TAKEDOWNS! it’s the answer in real life, it's the answer in the UFC games, wrestlers will get knocked out frozen.

  • I gotta remember to stop betting on heavyweight main events. Cant get one right ffs

  • U can tell he hates this part of fighting

  • He stayed patient, watch all the other guys fall for wrestlers pretending to strike for the first round, and they give in and start to relax towards takedowns, Derrick never relaxed always waited and boom! The difference though is can other guys take a beating like Derrick while waiting.

  • 12 not 20, Lewis was right to doubt her.

  • I hope he writes a book
