01 Jan UFC Vegas 6 video: Derrick Lewis announces he has to use the bathroom after knockout win
Derrick Lewis caught ESPN censors napping – and cracked up commentator Paul Felder after his big win at UFC Vegas 6.
Moments after stopping Aleksei Oleinik in the main event of Saturday’s fight card, Lewis started his cageside interview by declaring “I’ve gotta take a sh*t” before greeting the UFC commentator.
Check out the video.

The bleep folks eventually caught up to Lewis, but not before another highlight-reel interview for “Black Beast,” who etched a place in post-fight history when he told UFC commentator Joe Rogan “my balls was hot” after a win at UFC 229.
Felder quickly veered the topic back to the fight, which saw Lewis escape danger from the Russian submission artist, who tied him up in a head and arm choke late in the first round. A flying knee and right hand turned the tables for Lewis in the second, setting up a 21-second knockout. He picked up his 11th career knockout win and is just one fight away from tying ex-champ Vitor Belfort.
When it comes to cutting unlikely promos, however, Lewis might be the all-time champ.
