However, an outside-of-the-Octagon accident could’ve caused severe harm to both Lewis and his son. Lewis was sitting on a quad bike and he picked up one of his sons, which is when the fighter accidentally hit the gas throttle, propelling him and his son into their backyard, narrowly missing the side of his house and the side of a truck.

Lewis posted surveillance footage of the incident on Instagram:
