I miss the good old days were No. 10 ranked fought No. 9 ranked etc.. we had the usual gatekeepers and champions fought only those in the same weight division, Derrick lewis the black beast USA in dis hoe shirt who earnt their chance at a title shot i.e. No. 1 ranked. You could see this coming.After his last fight he already mentioned something like that he did not enjoy the fights.And last night after round 1 :He stood there like if he was thinking ….what the hell am I doing here

Ok lewis gassed out in the last 2 rounds and was dominated by hunt, but for me it is kind of an early stoppage. I saw fighter taking more punches without the ref stopping the fight, or did i miss something? He was basically running from the fight, he was done and he didn’t argue the stoppage himself, he knew it himself he was done. No need to let a gassed fighter get punched to the point of a Ko just for the sake of it. The ref did his job. If that’s how you feel, then go. If retirement is on your mind, then you won’t be an effective fighter. Thanks for some entertaining fights. Derrick lewis the black beast USA in dis hoe shirt Enjoy your next chapter. Also there are many stretching techniques I personally use to keep my back in working comdition. I’m a garbage truck driver so notbthe best for my back. I will tell you exercise is important. Building up muscles in your back, shoulders and legs will help immensely. Your back is your core. If it goes out you can’t do much. Feel free to message me if u need any advice. 20 years I’ve dealt with it and avoided having it “go out” on me. The first few years it went out constantly.
Hunt is a bad match up for anyone that wants to stand and bang. Lewis could of fought a smarter fight.. I’m sure those repetitive head kicks and knees he was throwing didn’t help his stamina or his lower back if that’s the problem.. people all acting like Stipe is a god or so.. he got KO’d by Struve lol.. he got rocked in many battles but somehow got the counter done. I mean, he is a great fighter and doing well but if Lewis hits him good in the first round he could be in trouble. Conditioning is his main weakness. But that can be improved rather quickly. He has some talent. If they need a last second replacement or something to face Stipe, why not give him a shot?
He was saying he wasn’t going to fight much longer after he beat Travis too, for a guy who says his heart isn’t in fighting he has an amazing amount of heart to keep going even when his tank is completely empty & he’s exhausted, he took some huge punches while totally gassed & didn’t go out, that’s tough & if he really is leaving fighting I will miss him as I thought that if he could just get some better cardio he would have ruled the Heavyweight division for a little while at least. All these ppl talking trash about him being done have never put their body through one fight camp. So pls stfu. The man is getting married & has a family. Geez. Some of y’all cry about waking up and going to your 9-5 sitting on your ass all day.
