Video: Derrick Lewis takes the ‘Hot Ones’ challenge

It takes a lot to make UFC heavyweight contender Derrick Lewis feel the heat, but he may have met his match on the latest episode of First We Feast’s Hot Ones show.

Lewis puts a good effort, but the two-time UFC title challenger is given pause on more than one occasion as he makes his way through a tableful of spicy chicken wings. Even though Lewis has shared the octagon with the likes of Francis Ngannou, Daniel Cormier, and Ciryl Gane, you’ve never seen him struggle quite like this.

In the interview, Lewis talks about his humble beginnings in MMA, the art of the knockout, his love of the Houston Texans, knocking out a wannabe street fighter in front of his family, his favorite cars, and much more.

Lewis next fights Chris Daukaus at a Dec. 18 UFC event.

Watch host Sean Evans make Lewis sweat in the clip above.
