  • UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis found a man trying to break into his car 
  • He shared clip of Houston police taking offender away and scratches on vehicle 
  • Lewis reportedly knocked the man out before calling in the authorities 
  • He posted picture of his knuckles and also wrote: ‘Mofo picked the wrong car’

A car thief in Houston made the disastrous mistake of choosing UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis’ vehicle to break into. 

Lewis, who is touted as Francis Ngannou’s next opponent for the title, knocked the thief out before calling Houston police, who took him away. 

Known for his KO power, it was the thief rather than an unfortunate rival in the octagon on the receiving end and Lewis documented the aftermath on his Instagram page.

Language warning 

The 36-year-old filmed the man being put into a police car before panning the camera around to show the damage, with deep scratch marks visible around the door. 

Lewis then turned the camera on himself and said: ‘Motherf***** tried to break into my s***.’

And the caption read: ‘Mofo pick right/wrong car to break into. HE’S OK.’

Lewis is known for sharing extreme videos of accidents or animal attacks on his page along with the caption, ‘he’s ok’. 

Later on, ‘The Black Beast’ posted a picture of his knuckles on his Instagram story with the word ‘satisfaction’ written over the top and ‘he’s ok’ at the bottom.

UFC president Dana White commented on the video with a head in hands emoji while welterweight champion Kamaru Usman chipped in: ‘Shaking my head, he’s ok at least.’  

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani subsequently confirmed Lewis had knocked the man out, saying: ‘Derrick Lewis tells me he noticed a man trying to break into his SUV this morning. He knocked the man out. The police then apprehended him.’

Lewis has won his last four fights in a row in the UFC’s heavyweight division and is in line for a rematch with Ngannou for the title. 

The organisation have moved away from the idea of a mega-fight between Jon Jones and the champion after a row erupted between both parties over pay.  

If the fan favourite managed to give Ngannou the same treatment as he did the car thief, he’d have the record for the most knockout wins in UFC history (13).
