Derrick Lewis’ coach blast “f-cking terrible” fans and “morbidly obese” reporter for post-fight criticism


Derrick Lewis last Saturday at UFC Witchita put up a good fight against Junior dos Santos, but ultimately ‘The Black Beast’ was not able to stand up to dos Santos’ knockout power. It was reported that Lewis has been suffering with a serious knee injury heading into the fight,  where he was knocked out in just the second round at UFC Fight Night 146 main event. As per the norm these day after many UFC fight Lewis has been severely criticized by online trolls. His head head coach Bob Perez is not too happy about it all.

While speaking with MMA Fighting, Perez lambaste the online trolls that have pursued Derrick Lewis and ‘morbidly obese’ reporters for criticizing Lewis’ performance, calling the critics ‘haters’ and ‘f-cking idiots.’

“All these trolls and all these haters and all these f*cking idiots — Derrick sucks? Come fight him, see how that goes for you, dumbass,” Perez said. “These reporters that have never competed in anything other than a pie-eating contest, they’re having trouble breathing while they’re f*cking typing because they’re morbidly obese, they want to question Derrick about his f*cking cardio? F*ck you.

We’ve had a couple of guys show up to the gym thinking they could beat Derrick in a fight and they got slept, bro. They got slept. People just don’t get how hard this is, how hard it is on the fighter, what they have to do in preparation. The aches, the pains, the heartache, the blood, sweat and tears — the cliche stuff. It’s f*cking true, man. These guys go through so much and these fans are just the most wishy-washy flip-flopping — they’re worse then politicians, man. You’re winning and it’s ‘We love you, you’re the best, your balls are hot, you’re the Black Beast.’ And you lose, ‘Aw, f*ck you, you suck!’ These fans, they’re f*cking terrible, man.”

Lewis has fallen two places in the heavyweight rankings since losing to dos Santos and finds himself on a two-fight losing spree for the first time in his career.
