Derrick "The Black Beast" Lewis Says He's Been Having A Ton Of Sex To Prepare For His UFC Heavyweight Title Fight With Daniel Cormier
BloodyElbow- In a recent appearance on The Rich Eisen Show, UFC Heavyweight Contender Derrick Lewis said that he now has a new cardio regimen, which at the same time, could also be the possible counter for Daniel Cormier’s wrestling when they face each other at UFC 230.
“I’ve been doing nothing but cardio. Even the sex,” Lewis said. “The sex really been helping my hips. I know Cormier is a wrestler so you really got to get them hips down on him so I’ve been working them hips really good.”
There is a standing belief that having sex before a fight could be detrimental to an athlete’s performance. Lewis, however, says he had busted this myth.
“Not me. Some times, a couple of times, I had sex the same day as I fought. Just to see if that myth was right, and it wasn’t right. But I was sleepy afterwards but I still had the energy though.” (transcript via MMA Fighting)
You know, other than Conor McGregor, and maybe Joe Lauzon, I think it’d be pretty fair to call Daniel Cormier my favorite fighter on the UFC’s active roster.
I don’t only love the man as a fighter – one of the greatest fighters in UFC history, no less, and if you disagree with that you’re just letting your Jon Jones fandom blind you to reality – but outside of the cage I love him just as much, maybe more, as Daniel Cormier is truly one of the most likable human beings on the planet. Because of this, I never thought I’d ever have conflicting feelings about rooting for him in a fight, but Derrick Lewis has definitely changed that.
Don’t get me wrong, on Saturday night at UFC 230, I’ll be firmly and unbiasedly (on press row) cheering for Daniel Cormier…but I’m gonna feel a little bad about doing so, because the Black Beast is just the absolute fucking man. A little bit of background on him if you don’t know Derrick…
Most people outside of the MMA bubble probably first heard of Lewis when he knocked out fellow UFC heavyweight Travis Browne, and immediately grabbed Brian Stann’s mic and asked, “WHERE’S RONDA ROUSEY’S FINE ASS AT?!”…
…but his almost show-stealing moment FOLLOWING his comeback win over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 sealed him this heavyweight championship opportunity.
Lewis finished the fight, took his shorts off, and had his hand raised in victory with them draping over his shoulder. Joe Rogan, obviously confused, began his interview with “Derrick, why did you take your pants off?”, to which the Black Beast responded, “My balls was hot”, and a legend was born. He doubled in Instagram followers overnight, his Twitter numbers were through the roof, and the public made one thing abundantly clear: they wanted more Black Beast.
So now we got it! And it’s paying off big time, because not only is this the first UFC rivalry to have started over the apparent disrespect of Popeye’s Chicken in a commercial…
…but this revelation may make Derrick Lewis the first #1 Contender for a UFC Championship to admit preparing for the fight by fucking his wife a bunch. Says it’ll improve his wrestling because of the workout the hips get! And he’s saying this just weeks after admitting he wasn’t ready for a title shot! Ha! What the fuck?! That doesn’t make a lick o’sense and I couldn’t love it any more!
It’d certainly be a mistake to count Lewis out entirely, though, because his hands are so friggin’ heavy he could sleep anyone on the roster. He iiiiiis a +590 underdog, though.
