Speaking to reporters at the post-fight press conference for UFC 230 (via MMAjunkie), Derrick Lewis discusses his main event title loss to Daniel Cormier at the fight card. Below are some highlights from the presser.

Derrick Lewis on how the fight went: “He did what we thought he was going to do: wrestle. Point blank. I was feeling good in the second round, throwing. Had a good movement going and (expletive), he just went for the takedown. Really, in the third round we thought we’d have the upper hand to really finish the fight in the third. My breathing was good, and everything was good, but we just had to wait until the third round to really turn it on.”

Lewis on wanting some time off: “For sure (I want time off). (Expletive), hopefully I don’t have to fight no more this year then they can hit me up before the summer of next year.”
