Derrick Lewis defeated Travis Browne by second round KO in the main event of UFC Halifax this past Sunday.
Derrick Lewis dropped the Hawaiian with a big right hand and followed up with vicious ground and pound. The bout was stopped at a time of 3:12 into the second round.
In his octagon interview, Lewis said that he wants some time off after only having a two month turnaround since his last fight back in December. Lewis now moves to 18-4-1 with back to back wins and now riding a six fight win streak, five of those wins by TKO/KO.
Ranked number 8 in the division at the time, Derrick Lewis said in his back stage interview that he would be looking for a top ten or top five opponent next but did not call out any names.
“There’s still a lot of stuff I need to work on, improve on and stuff like that, my conditioning and stuff like that. Right now I just want some time off but you know whoever is the top five guys or top ten guys I’m willing to step in a fight them, it doesn’t matter who they are.”
