UFC 265 ‘Embedded’ video, Ep. 1: Derrick Lewis is sizzling (and his shorts want to come back off)

UFC heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis took off his shorts right in the middle of the Octagon on live TV, so I can’t imagine “The Black Beast” having any concerns about dropping Trow in the middle of Houston.

Where his trainer expects him to sprint in the triple-digit heat.

“Texas heat,” said Lewis on episode 1 of UFC 265 Embedded. “I feel fit, but it’s more of a mental thing. Although it’s fight week, it’s more of a mental side of things right now. I want to try as hard as possible, just in case it comes to the fourth or fifth round, which I don’t see. “

“I’m about to take this one short,” Lewis continued.

Lewis battles Ciryl Gane for the interim heavyweight belt created in response to the lengthy layoff of reigning 265-pound title holder Francis Ngannou. UFC 265 will take place live on Pay-Per-View (PPV) this Saturday night (August 7, 2021) from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
