You can’t have any more of a simplistic brain dead meathead nick name than “Black Beast” absolutely perfect nickname for a heavyweight swinger like Derrick Lewis. Well, I guess “Meathead” Matt Mitrione is right there too. Look at this dudes resume, almost all knockouts one way or the other.
He’s the type of fighter that Bellator was hoping for in the Kimbo/Dada 5000 fight. I’d love to see that June 25th 2011 fight vs Tony Johnson too. I’d bet that laid the blueprint for what we saw last Friday night in Bellator.
The Black Beast’s Instagram game is also on another level. Dude is a force to reckon with in the dog eat dog world of meme posting.
(Gotta love a top tier UFC fighter posting a broke meme, step your pay up UFC)
He’s on point on Twitter too
He was one of the first ones out there calling for McGregor if RDA backed out. C’mon Conor, Black Beast will meet you at 230. (Calls Overeem out for being off the juice right after)
Dudes highlight reel from his pre-UFC days isn’t bad either.
