The best f*cken interview in UFC history happened on the weekend
Anyone who’s ever played sports knows what it’s like to say strange things during and after the contest. We’re not even talking pro-level sh*t either. You might ‘compete’ in the dodgiest Thursday night indoor cricket competition in the world, but there’s at least one bloke there who just spews a litany of total f**ken horsesh*t during the game. So when a commentator approaches an athlete for an interview, you’re justified in expecting the odd strange thing to come out of their mouths. Still, you probably haven’t heard much that’s weirder than this interview – and that’s what makes it so great…

Strap yourselves in and take your seat ringside for the aftermath of Derrick Lewis’s fight at UFC 229. Yeah, nah, Conor and Khabib weren’t the only b*stards going toe to toe on the day. Lewis returned to action against another Russkie, Alexander Volkov. Right after the knock-out, Joe Rogan entered the octagon for a quick interview.
And that’s where the fun begins. Deadset, right from the outset, Lewis is in fine form. In his celebrations, the big-punching bugger has whipped his f**ken pants off. Naturally, Rogan has to ask him why? The response is simple: “Because my balls was hot.”
From there the interview rapidly changes direction. According to Lewis, Donald Trump called him before the fight. “I forgot. A few hours before the fight, Donald Trump called me and told me I gotta knock this Russian mother**ker out because they making him look bad on the news, you know, him and Putin and shit…fuck, what they talking about? USA and this whole…fuck.”
When quizzed on whether he wanted a shot, the Black Beast claimed he needed to work on some cardio. And then, after the hot balls and the Trump revelation came Lewis’ coup de grace. “Hey, maybe next week some time or two weeks from now, I’m gonna come on your show and smoke some weed with you!”
Rogan’s response is simple and obvious. “Any time, Sir. Any time.”
Final thought: Well, that was a stark bloody difference to the insanity of the later fights on the bill. Lewis, clearly still geed up from his victory was shooting loose and fast from the hip. You’ve gotta love that sh*t!
