    “I probably don’t deserve a shot more than Stipe, who should have got the shot. But ain’t no telling the next time I’m gonna get the opportunity, so I gotta jump on it anyways.”

    . . .

    "I’m not a mixed martial artist,” Lewis said. “That’s probably what they looking at. And I don’t blame them. I don’t train like a mixed martial artist. I don’t respect the sport like everyone else does. I’m just a brawler. I go in to fight just to fight. I don’t care about submissions, the technique and all of that. Bowing and showing respect — I don’t give nothing about none of that. I’m just coming in and fighting.”

    . . .

    On Thursday, Lewis laughed off the notion that Cormier might have a bum hand.

    “I go into every fight with a bad back and overweight and damn near diabetic,” Lewis said. “So it doesn’t matter to me that he’s coming into the fight with just a bad hand. That’s a good thing for him.”

    . . .

    “I still believe Stipe probably should have been next, because all the people that lost their belt, they got the title shot right back as soon as they lost it, they got the rematch,” Lewis said. “It is what it is. But I’m happy and grateful for the opportunity.”

    Shit like this makes me like him more. The polar opposite of mma snobs. I can just picture all the BJJ weaklings' reactions

    This is the champ we deserve.
    The baddest man on earth is a brawler. And fat. And has no cardio, no submissions, no shit. No bullshit.
    Big, bad and fat. And black.
    People's champ!

    Go Black Beast!

    Has lots of Knockouts and doesn't sound like a pro wrestler screaming in the face of an opponent. Kind of some humble statements really about not being martial artist or deserving the shot. I like him actually better after hearing all that.

    not sure he could hang if he was as untrained as he wants to let on, i think it's more likely some kind of self-mythologizing or a continuation of his self deprecating jokes

    Depends on how long Joshua gets to train TDD. If you think one training camp is enough...not a chance.

    With a lot longer and given the athlete that Joshua is, different story.

    As for Derrick, guy is as real as it gets. No BS ever. I wouldn't be surprised one bit if he takes his $3-$5m for this fight and says "I'm out. Bye." If he's smart he'll never have to work again.
