#2 ranked heavyweight on the planet, Derrick Lewis just struck a landmark sponsorship deal with Popeye’s Louisiana Fried Chicken restaurant.
This is very odd since the lowest point of his UFC career was gassing out and losing to Mark Hunt in a fight where coaches took pictures of him eating Popeye’s chicken backstage in the locker room minutes before heading out to fight Hunt.
If Lewis wins this weekend, he will be allowed to eat Popeye’s for life and everyone in his hometown will be able to eat free for 2 hours. Check it out:
Adding another layer to the fast-food war brewing heading into UFC 230, Derrick Lewis’ manager @malkikawa tells me @PopeyesChicken took notice of @Thebeast_ufc defending its honor and have struck a deal with him heading into this weekend’s fight. Details to come.
