Derrick Lewis caught ESPN censors taking a nap – and fell for commentator Paul Felder after his big win at UFC Vegas 6.
Moments after stopping Aleksei Oleinik at Saturday’s fight card main event, Lewis began his cage-side interview by stating “I have to take a shit” before greeting the UFC commentator.

The beep folks finally caught up with Lewis, but not until another interview for “Black Beast,” which carved a place in post-fight history when he told UFC commentator Joe Rogan “my balls. were hot ”after a win at UFC 229.
Felder quickly sent the subject back to battle, which saw Lewis escape the danger of the submissive Russian artist, who tied him up in a head and arm choke at the end of the first round. A flying knee and a right hand turned the situation around for Lewis in the second, setting up a 21-second knockout. He won his 11th career knockout victory and is only one match away from ex-champion Vitor Belfort.
However, when it comes to cutting unlikely promos, Lewis could be the all-time champion.
