They’re coming out of the woodwork today.
Travis Browne jumped on the opportunity to clown on Derrick Lewis after he suffered a technical knockout loss to Mark Hunt at last night’s (Sat., June 10, 2017) UFC Fight Night 110 event on Fox Sports 1 (video highlights here), calling him a quitter with no heart that should indeed retire.
Now, Francis Ngannou is giving “The Black Beast” a taste of his own medicine, as well, as “The Predator” took to Twitter to clap back at Derrick for downplaying his victory over Andrei Arlovski given his age by reminding him that Hunt —who is older than “The Pitbull” at 43 years of age -- just beat him up.
Lewis said I win Arlovski because he's old with 37 but Mark Hunt 43 years old beat he like a baby— Francis NGannou (@francis_ngannou) June 11, 2017
Indeed, Hunt took it to Derrick throughout the bout, and though he didn’t exactly punish him or deliver a vintage knockout as we have grown accustomed to, Mark did eventually finish “Black Beast” after the referee on duty felt Lewis had nothing to offer in the fourth round.
Afterward, Derrick stated that it was probably the last time he would ever step foot inside the Octagon, revealing that he wouldn’t want to put his family through anymore pain.
If it is the end of Derrick, fight fans will never get to see a heavily-talked about and much-anticipated Heavyweight showdown between Francis and Derrick. But at least “The Predator” can find comfort in being able to deliver one final blow in.
