Derrick Lewis wants to fight 'scared' Brock Lesnar, can't afford UFC 200 tickets on current salary

Does anyone have $12,000 they can lend to Derrick Lewis?

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight slugger and part-time nude model will be keeping a close eye on the Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt fight, which takes place in the UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event this Saturday night (July 9, 2016) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Let's just hope a nearby bar will be airing the live feed.

"You know how much the tickets is?" Lewis asked MMA Fighting. "Shit. I'll probably be at a bar around here watching it. I'm not paying that much for damn tickets."

Or he could just follow the live play-by-play right here on

Lewis will throw hands opposite Roy Nelson in the UFC Fight Night 90 co-headliner this Thursday night (July 7), also in "Sin City," for the right to climb the heavyweight ladder (preview). If so, you can bet the "Black Beast" will be asking for the winner of Lesnar vs. Hunt.

"Brock Lesnar is not a fighter," Lewis said at this week's open workouts. "He's scared to be hit. It depends on how this fight goes. If my fight goes the way that I want it to go Thursday, I would like the winner."
