UFC Fighter Derrick "The Black Beast" Lewis Is Saving Lives In Houston

It feels good to help people #houstonflood

As you all know by now, Houston (and a lot of Texas) has been devastated by Hurricane Harvey. It was a horrible, horrible storm and many lives were lost. Derrick Lewis is down there right now trying to make sure no more are lost, and you have to respect the fuck out of that. He’s one of the few people who are hilarious on the mic, a beast in the octagon (pun intended), and a genuinely great dude. Right before this video ends he checks on the kids and makes sure they’re alright, and it was really heartwarming to see how much he cares.

You know who else is a great dude? Our guy Tex. He’s down there as well, volunteering, lending a hand, and doing whatever he can, making all of us proud and honored to call him family.

You can help by texting the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation to the Red Cross or by buying Old Row’s “Texas Strong” shirt (100% of proceeds will go to relief efforts).

If you have anything to spare after that, one of our viceroys for the University of Houston, Connor Diaz, needs some help too, and we always gotta look out for our own. Here’s the GoFundMe page Tex set up for him:
