Derrick Lewis fought Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 pay-per-view (PPV) main card Saturday night (Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lewis, who was considered the underdog, earned a come-from-behind knockout to register a dramatic win.
The Black Beast whipped off his shorts before the post-fight interview with Joe Rogan which made the UFC commentator curious. When asked about the reason Lewis responded saying "Because my balls were hot" which stunned everyone in the arena. He also told Rogan that Donald Trump had called to explicitly tell him to "knock this Russian mother f----- out."
Lewis' followers on Instagram trebled to 1.2 million some days after his interview.
