Straight Derrick Lewis wants to bang Roy Nelson, bro

Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight bruiser Derrick Lewis is sympathetic toward those mixed martial arts (MMA) fans who fell asleep during UFC Fight Night 82. After all, the co-main event between Roy Nelson and Jared Rosholt wasn't exactly a barnburner.

See it again here if you need a quick nap.

Since no bros were banged during those 15 tedious minutes, Lewis is willing to step up and take one for the team. The means to that end would be a three-round slugfest against Nelson later this year, a "fun" fight that would likely end by way of devastating knockout.

The official call out:

I'd watch.

Lewis knows a thing or two about knockouts, having ended 13 of 14 wins with his fists (including this one just last week). Nelson, on the other hand, has 13 of 21 wins by way of KO/TKO, but is the kind of fighter with no qualms about walking forward and dropping bombs until someone goes nighty-night.
