Derrick Lewis wants to see the money

However, it was very easy for Derrick Lewis to pick an opponent between heavyweight champions Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane. It actually didn’t matter to him until the zeros on the cheque are the same.

“They told me what I’m getting paid if I’m fighting Francis, and they told me what I’m getting paid if I’m fighting Ciryl,” Lewis told reporters backstage at UFC 264. “So it doesn’t matter to me.”

“He’s boring most of the time, but he’s smart,” Lewis said. “It’s still going to be a fun night with me if he’s going to try and stay away and do all his little fancy kicks. I’m still going to have my moment in the fight.”
