Derrick Lewis recalls street fight in high school. Beat up 10 ‘greasers’.

In this interview with Derrick Lewis, he tells a story about the time he beat up a bunch of ‘greasers’. It’s crazy because I didn’t know that Derrick Lewis lived in SE Hinton’s 1960’s version of ‘The Outsiders’.

Lewis recalled his time at a high school party as a ‘Soc’.

“It was about 10 Greaser guys with their sleeves all rolled up. It was something that you would see in the movies. They got their sleeves rolled up and they’re all in white shirts with jeans on.

They didn’t expect me to come out; A black guy. I just started whooping up on all of them because they were at my buddies house and they started some mess. That was a fun night. Just started knocking them out left and right.”

Obviously, Lewis would move on from high school to become a top UFC heavyweight.

I imagine 1-on-1 is much easier than 10-1. Stay gold, Pony-Beast.
