Watch UFC heavyweight knock out boxer – that disrespected MMA
UFC heavyweight “The Black Beast” Derrick Lewis is currently preparing himself to return to the cage against divisional newcomer Ilir Latifi on Feb. 8, 2020. But that does not hinder Lewis to get into fights before that date, and especially against someone that disrespects the heavy-handed “Black Beast”.
Lewis recently shared a video where he is seen fighting a boxer that, accordingly to him, “said he will knock me out because I’m a MMA fighter”

UFC heavyweight: Lewis vs. Latifi
Lewis snapped a two-bout losing skid when he took home a split decision against Blagoy Ivanov at UFC 244 on Nov. 2. “The Black Beast” had been finished by the former double champion Daniel Cormier in a title bout, and was later knocked out by former heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos in March.
Lewis will welcome Sweden’s Latifi to the heavyweight division in a yet-to-be-determined event in early February. #12 ranked light heavyweight Latifi has lost two in a row and is looking to revitalize his career by returning to his heavyweight days, where he used to compete before he joined the UFC in 2013.
