Derrick Lewis goes viral for revealing celebration after KO win at UFC on ESPN 56

UFC star Derrick Lewis stole the show on Saturday in more ways than one.

Derrick Lewis (28-12-0) knocked out Rodrigo Nascimento (11-2-0) in the main event of UFC Fight Night at Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Mo.

Lewis clocked Nascimento with a huge right haymaker in the opening minute of the third round. The 39-year-old was able to finish the fight with some ground-and-pound blows moments later.

Derrick Lewis was a clear fan favorite among the fans in the arena. After the win, the 260-pound played to the crowd in an unusual manner.

Lewis took off his shorts and threw out his cup toward a media member. Then with nothing but his underwear left on, Lewis mooned the fans at Enterprise Center.

The gesture, often used by athletes in a disrespectful manner, actually got the St. Louis crowd fired up.

Derrick Lewis was evidently in great spirits after getting the victory. He came into the bout having lost five of his last seven fights.
