Derrick Lewis Gives The Greatest After Party Invite After Beating Ilir Latifi At UFC 247
UFC heavyweight star Derrick Lewis gave another classic post-fight interview with Joe Rogan following his victory at UFC 247.
'The Black Beast' beat Ilir Latifi on points to record his second straight win following his defeat to Junior Dos Santos in March 2019.
And speaking after his hometown win in Houston, Lewis told Rogan that he'd been smoking weed all week and gave a great after party invite.

"It was very important [to fight in Houston]. That's why 24/7 all week I was smoking weed," Lewis said to Rogan in his post-fight interview.
"I guess that boy got a chin," he said about Latifi afterwards. "I just appreciate everybody coming out. Thanks for the support."
He added: "That's the way I told my coach, let me know how much time I got left and he told me that's when the beast come out."
Derrick Lewis' after-party invite is great :laughing:

Lewis then dropped a brilliant line about his after party: "After party at Little Woodrow's. I'll let y'all buy me 5 shots. And I'm not buying y'all shit, though. Come on out."
Derrick Lewis is must-see TV. that was completely absurd. How about Latifi, though? Chin was utterly uncrackable, and it looks like his wrestling game may really translate to HW
