The Black Beast recently took to social media and highlighted another Knock Out win which apparently came at a parking lot in his hometown of Houston. Lewis reportedly caught and punched a thief who was trying to break into his SUV on Tuesday.

Lewis then reportedly confronted the man and punched him in the face, knocking him down. He then held the thief until police arrived at the scene.

Derrick Lewis, who boasts an MMA record of 25-7-0 (1 NC), is currently ranked no. 3 in the heavyweight rankings. His “knockout of the year” contender win over Curtis Blaydes once again earned him a title shot and is currently in talks to fight the newly crowned heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in Summer 2021, possibly August. That bout is the result of seemingly failed negotiations between the promotion and former light heavyweight champ Jon Jones, who had been set to face Ngannou. Lewis and Ngannou have fought each other in the past, with the Black Beast coming out on top via unanimous decision.
