During his post-fight press conference (transcribed by MMA Fighting), Lewis revealed that although he’s already lost a lot of weight, that this is just the beginning, and fans can expect to see an even better version of himself moving forward.
“I owe it to the fans,“ Lewis stated. “I owe it to everyone that supports me. I got to really take it more serious than what I have been.”
Lewis seemed to have the same idea in mind, as he gave his thoughts on how the fight would go, if it were to came to fruition.
“That’d be perfect to fight Curtis next,” Lewis said. “All he’s going to do is try to grab me and hold me and try to win a decision. He’s not going to try to finish me. If he do try to finish me, that’s fine, but I do believe I can take Curtis down and punish him on the ground.
“Yeah, put that on the headline. Make the headlines, go ahead. Type it. That’s headlines right there. I’m going to take Curtis Blaydes down and finish him.”
