Just moments before the UFC Fight Night 126 broadcast cut to a joint-adorned Nate Diaz sitting ringside, they aired another family-unfriendly act from a UFC fighter: heavyweight Derrick Lewis.

The 33-year-old brought his UFC record to 10-3 with a beastly knockout of Marcin Tybura in the third round of the event’s penultimate fight.

He followed the knockout up with a spot of oversharing. During his post-fight interview in the octagon, Lewis informed his wife, April—and everyone in the world—that he wasn’t done exerting himself for the night.

“I’m going to try and rest up a little bit so I can be strong in the fourth round with (my wife),” Lewis said. “I’m going to knock it out of the box. To my baby, April, better get ready girl, I’m going deep.”

Sexual post-fight comments is kind of a theme for Lewis. After rearranging Travis Browne’s face last year at UFC Fight Night 105, he got personal, wondering aloud of the whereabouts of Browne’s then-girlfriend and current wife Ronda Rousey.

But not before bringing up allegations of domestic abuse levied against Browne by his previous ex-wife.

“I just knew I had a bigger heart than him. He calls himself a man, but he likes to put his hands on women,” Lewis said. “So forget that guy, I’ve got much more heart than he has. … Where’s Ronda Rousey’s fine ass at?”
