Been waiting on Lewis' debut for a while.

Lewis has the Mark Hunt ability where no matter how gassed he gets, his punching power doesn't decrease. His submission defense isn't bad either, although his wrestling is his weakness. May won't be testing anything other than his striking though, which I predict won't end well. Lewis takes this by KO.

It was this weird one night heavyweight tournament that was 1 round fights with modified rules. Most sites counted it as exhibition or amateur.

Expected May to get signed soon after he beat Seumanutafa quickly the other week, but not this soon! Always good to see new heavies though, taking Lewis here.

Derrick is a very special case. What you are watching is just the tip of the iceberg with him. Ill go out on a limb and say hes the hardest hitter in MMA. If you look at the litany of destruction its unparalleled. Derrick has hospitalized guy like so quick. He broke one opponents skull on the front and back with a single punch. Derrick has true freak physical power in all aspects...forget what he looks like or how big he is...its monsterous. His loss to jordan was derricks second fight and this kid literally brawled his way into the ufc. Ive trained with him and he can do things that aren't even to be done. Watch his fight with ricky shivers when he takes that hulking black belt and grabs a kimura while mounted by shivers. He can do things you aren't supposed to do and that is where is secret is. Of course anyone can be Koed but this kid hasn't even had swollen eye or lip. Nothing. May will assume that he can do things that he can't do when hes in there. Very hard dude to prepare for. Ive worked with this kid and i PROMISE he can do stuff no one else ive ever met can do. I wish him the best and hope to see him fighting top 10 guys before end of the year. Derrick just started working with serious camp recently and looks to be improving rapidly. Hes with 4oz out of houston with Bobby Perez.

Heard a lot of good things about Lewis. Hopefully some of these new hws turnout.Between Rosholt, Lewis, Pesta, Guto, Inocente, Potts, Ruslan n Olenik they've signed a lot of the best young how talent

Lewis looked good.

He made a "belt" gesture.
