Derrick Lewis, an American fighter nicknamed “Black Beast,” set the record for the most knockouts in UFC heavyweight history after yet another brutal finish at the “UFC Vegas 6″ event Saturday.

A possible reason for why Lewis was so desperate to end the fight early is because he needed to go to the men’s room, saying in his post-match interview that he was desperate for “a s—.”

About Derrick
A derrick is a lifting device composed at minimum of one guyed mast, as in a gin pole, which may be articulated over a load by adjusting its guys. Most derricks have at least two components, either a guyed mast or self-supporting tower, and a boom hinged at its base to provide articulation, as in a stiffleg derrick.
The most basic type of derrick is controlled by three or four lines connected to the top of the mast, which allow it both to move laterally and cant up and down. To lift a load, a separate line runs up and over the mast with a hook on its free end, as with a crane.Forms of derricks are commonly found aboard ships and at docking facilities. Some large derricks are mounted on dedicated vessels, and known as floating derricks and sheerlegs.
The term derrick is also applied to the framework supporting a drilling apparatus in an oil rig.The derrick derives its name from a type of gallows named after Thomas Derrick, an Elizabethan era English executioner.

A Louisiana-born Texan, Lewis, 35, swapped shots with Aleksei Oleinik at the behind-closed-doors UFC Apex.

Lewis began the fight in fast fashion, unleashing head kicks and other significant strikes in an attempt to faze Oleinik.

In total, Lewis landed 35 of his 42 strikes and he ended the fight for good in the second round with violent ground-and-pound.

It was the 11th knockout win in the UFC for Lewis, a company record.

Watch the finish here:

After the fight, the UFC commentator and fighter Paul Felder conducted a socially-distant interview, in line with coronavirus health and safety measures, with Lewis.

The fighter, believing he was off-air at the time, said: “I gotta take a s—, now.”

He later added there is scope to add to his knockout streak in the future as he wants to continue improving.

“I believe I have improved a lot, but I’m still not where I need to be,” Lewis said. “I’m still not really comfortable where I need to be fighting at.

“I just knew that I had to put pressure on him, because of the way he fights, he doesn’t really move his head, so anything that I really threw at him was going to land.

“Everything worked just the way we talked about,” he said. “I plan to fight again, maybe in December. If I get there and dominate whoever my next opponent is, then I believe I’ll be next for the [UFC heavyweight] title.”
