The extraordinary American fighter, Derrick Lewis, was highly criticized in the UFC Vegas 19. This Saturday, at the Apex in Nevada, he knocked out Curtis blaydes in the second round and caused many opinions against him. This, after leaving him unconscious, he applied two more terrible blows to the canvas. For this reason, everyone points out that it was unnecessary, although he had a special reason for what he did.
Being that way, Lewis He started by saying, “Because his corner, his coaches were talking, ‘that was silly.’ I was saying it’s not my fault, it’s Herb Dean’s fault. I’m going to keep fighting until the referee stops you. That is with anyone. The same could happen to me. I’m going to keep fighting until the referee says to stop. I can’t just flip the switch like that.
«I know some fighters could do that, but I can’t do that. I have to wait until the referee takes you off, because you never know what happens. Anything can happen. He could become ‘Undertaker’ and sit up straight and have all those drinks. You never know. You have to keep going until the referee tells you to relax. I couldn’t really wake up there, ”he said.

For its part, Derrick He said, “Like all the time in the back, the walk to the Octagon, the first and second rounds, my body couldn’t just wake up. I do not know why. I just didn’t have it today, the energy I needed to have. He wanted to be more explosive in the first one, but he couldn’t just pull the trigger. But all I expected was for him to shoot. I didn’t care about anything else. I was just waiting for him to shoot. Throw the uppercut or knee. We knew it was coming.
“At the end of the first round I’m like, ‘He’s wrong.’ That’s what I was saying in my head. His coach was trying to lift his head and I’m fine, keep playing that game. That’s what I was telling myself. Then the second round came and I thought he was going to go out and stand up a bit, then he was going to try to shoot. I just had to be patient. That’s what we’ve been drilling all month. Really 12 weeks, really, trying to prepare myself for this guy, “he closed Derrick Lewis.
