Beloved UFC Fight Tells World After Record-Breaking KO: ‘I’ve Got to Take a S***’

Beloved UFC heavyweight Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis made history on Saturday night when he finished Aleksei Oleinik during Saturday’s UFC Fight Night at the promotion’s Apex Center. With his second-round TKO victory, The Black Beast broke the record for most KO/TKO finishes in the UFC heavyweight division with 11. According to ESPN, Lewis is also tied for second with four other fighters for most KO/TKOs in the promotion’s history.

Besides his ferocious power, The Black Beast is also known for his NSFW personality and tendency to say outrageous things inside and outside the Octagon. Saturday night was no different when he told the world during his post-fight interview with Paul Felder that he had to use the toilet.

After Lewis’ viral comment, Felder congratulated The Black Beast on his record-breaking win and the heavyweight fighter revealed the next major step he wants to take before reentering the Octagon for another bout.

Lewis said (transcribed by MMA Fighting): “[The record] feels good, especially knowing that I’m not where I need to be at. I’m really not going to take no more fights until I walk around at 250 or 245 [pound] range. So I got to get down at least 15, 20 pounds. I’m not going to take no more fights at 260.”

The Black Beast confirmed that he wanted to return sometime in December, but as of right now, he is solely focused on trying to get his weight down.

It’s ‘Crazy’ to Lewis That He Has the Record for Most Knockouts

During the post-fight press conference, The Black Beast said that it was “crazy” he had the most knockouts in heavyweight history and that he wanted to remain humble.

Lewis said (transcribed by ESPN): “It’s crazy. I still can’t believe that I’ve got the most knockouts,” Lewis said in his postfight news conference. “It’s a crazy feeling because of all the great heavyweights before me. … Watching Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez, all those guys for all those years. Seeing they didn’t accomplish what I did, I’ve just gotta stay humble about it.”

It is time for a changing of the guard on the Edmonton Oilers blueline: 9 Things

The Chicago Blackhawks and Edmonton Oilers shake hands following the Blackhawks 3-2 victory in Game 4 to win the Western Conference Qualification Round at Rogers Place on August 07, 2020.

Disappointed?

That doesn’t seem to be sufficient, does it?

The NHL’s plan to allow 24 teams into the post-season was flawed. Clubs like the Habs and Hawks did not earn that right, they were given it. But full marks to them both. Those teams took their opportunities and ran with them. And while I stand by my criticism of the 24-team model in the very next breath? It is incumbent upon Pittsburgh and Edmonton to not let that happen.

The Oilers 3-1 loss to Chicago surely leaves a bitter aftertaste. In the paragraphs to come I will attempt to dissect some of what went wrong and some of the things

Tens of thousands of demonstrators demanded the resignation of Lebanon’s government yesterday.

The country has recorded more than 160,000 deaths, nearly a quarter of the world’s total. President Donald Trump has signed executive orders intended to provide economic relief to Americans harmed by the pandemic after the White House failed to reach a deal with Congress.
