Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight smashing machine, Derrick Lewis, is a pretty big deal in Texas, where he not only saved a bunch of children from hurricane flood waters, but also shilled for that mattress dude who took a bath in the 2019 World Series.
That’s why “Black Beast” was honored with his own mural in Houston, though I can’t help but wonder if the artist charged with handling the likeness got the UFC 247 bout sheet mixed up and painted his opponent, Ilir Latifi, instead.
Have a look:
Lewis and Latifi go to war on the UFC 247 pay-per-view (PPV) main card this Sat. night (Feb. 8, 2020) inside Houston’s Toyota Center (preview their fight here).
