UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis is still throwing some attacks at Travis Browne even after their fight has come to an end.
On Sunday in the main event of UFC Fight Night 105 in Halifax, Canada, Lewis scored a second round KO over Browne. With the fight ending in a decisive manner, Lewis has continued his attack on Browne in his post-fight interviews and on social media.
In his post-fight Octagon interview, Lewis brought up Browne’s history of alleged domestic violence and threw a racy comment at Browne’s girlfriend and former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey.
“I just knew I had bigger heart than him,” Lewis told Brian Stann in the Octagon after his win. “He calls himself a man but he likes to put his hands on women, so forget that guy, I’ve got much more heart than he has.
“Where Ronda Rousey fine ass at?”
“The Black Beast” continued on in his post-fight attack on social media. Lewis’ Instagram feed shows his humor as he has quite a few memes and viral video posts. Lewis posted a few edits directed at Browne and Rousey, as well as a few other playful posts unrelated to the fight.
