Derrick Lewis (born February 7, 1985) is an American professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, currently competing in the heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Lewis has been a professional competitor since 2010, and has also competed for Bellator MMA and Legacy, where he was the heavyweight champion. As of October, 2017, he is currently #6 in official UFC heavyweight rankings.

“If it wasn’t for MMA, I’d be doing a lot worse stuff than what I’ve been doing. I really, really try to kill my opponents, even though I know I can’t do it because the ref is there,” he said. “But that’s my intention every time.” Lewis said to MMAjunkie when asked about his start in the sport.
