Derrick Lewis Admits To Trying To Illegaly Stream UFC 270

Derrick Lewis is quite the character. UFC heavyweight is mostly known for his knockout power in addition to his funny bone.

During the most recent press conference appearance, ahead of his fight against Tai Tuivasa for UFC 271, the story was no different.

A reporter asked Lewis if he had watched Francis Ngannou’s last fight. Ngannou and Lewis haven’t seen eye to eye since their fight against each other.

In a lackluster fight, Lewis was able to get the decision victory and is now one of the two fighters able to beat Ngannou in the octagon.

As a response, Derrick had this to say:

“No, I didn’t watch the fight (Ngannou v Gane). I’ll be damned if I paid Francis any money out of my pocket for his PPVs. No, I didn’t watch. I tried to stream it, but they kept getting shut down.”

And that is not the first time Derrick jokes about illegal streaming UFC events.

Lewis is expected to face Tai Tuivasa in the co-main event of UFC 271 this weekend. The card will be headlined by Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, he will be facing former champion, Robert Whittaker, in a rematch for the belt.
