Derrick Lewis Fires Back After Travis Browne And Francis Ngannou Call Him Out

Derrick Lewis suggested that he may have fought for the last time after being TKO’d by Mark Hunt in the main event UFC Fight Night 110 on Saturday night, but it seems that several of his fellow heavyweights are still eager to get their hands on him.

Soon after Lewis’ defeat, Travis Browne roasted him on Instagram, apparently still bitter about the fact that ‘The Black Beast’ had not only knocked him out earlier this year, but also then went on to reference unproven claims from a former girlfriend of ‘El Hapa’s’ in relation to domestic abuse in his post-fight interview.

Meanwhile, Ngannou, who like Lewis has been marked out as a rising star in the heavyweight division in the past couple of years, also took a pot-shot at his defeated rival.

“Lewis said I win Arlovski because he’s old with 37 but Mark Hunt 43 years old beat he like a baby,” Ngannou wrote on Twitter.

However, it seems that Lewis is unimpressed with his fellow heavyweight’s taunts.

“Travis Browne waking up from the dead saying he wants a rematch and Francis learning how to use google translator talking s***,” Lewis responded on Twitter.

At the moment the 32-year-old Lewis is staying quiet on whether he does intend to go through with his claim on Saturday night that he is “probably” going to retire.
