UFC on ESPN+ 4 Derrick Lewis recently interviewed Derrick Lewis ahead of his main event bout with former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC on ESPN+ 4. The fight is set for later today. Below are some highlights from the interview.

Lewis on his focus on conditioning for his camp: “It’s all I’ve really been focused on the last few months, really, just conditioning. No technique or nothing.”

Derrick Lewis on the critics who say he has bad cardio and conditioning: “I don’t care. (Expletive). By the time fight night comes, I’m 280 (pounds). So they (can) try to move around being 280 and move around 15 minutes and 25 minutes and see if they don’t get tired, no matter how much conditioning you got. … I’m not in this company to please people and prove people wrong. I’m in it to make money. They can say what they want.”
