After that fight is complete, another person Lewis wouldn’t mind battling in the Octagon is former NFL star Greg Hardy.
“He’s a wife beater. I’d like to get in there with him. I like knocking these wife beaters out,” Lewis said to TMZ. “Yeah, I’ll fight Greg Hardy. It’d be like vice versa of him beating all the women; I’ll be beating him like he’s a woman.”
Hardy had been arrested in both 2014 and 2016 for domestic abuse and drug possession.
Lewis grew up watching his parents fight everyday, which is a huge factor into why the competitor hates domestic abusers.
“I grew up watching my mom and step dad fight watching about every single damn day — fist fighting — for the stupid stuff. I don’t tolerate stuff like that at all,” says Lewis.
The fight could actually happen if Hardy first gets a win on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contenders Series and then gets a contract offer from the UFC. The fight at DWTNCS will mark the professional MMA debut for Hardy, who has previously competed in amateur MMA bouts.
