UFC on ESPN 56 results: Derrick Lewis moons St. Louis crowd after KO of Rodrigo Nascimento

Derrick Lewis topped his previous celebrations, but it was also bottoms out Saturday in St. Louis.

Following his UFC on ESPN 56 main event win, Lewis (27-12 MMA, 18-10 UFC) pulled out all of the stops to the thrill of those in attendance at Enterprise Center.

First, Lewis finished Rodrigo Nascimento (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) with punches at the 0:49 mark of Round 3. Then, the shorts came off in vintage fashion and he fanned the downed Nascimento with them.

The production team was forced to scramble for a tighter frame as Lewis laid down on the canvas in his underwear to remove his cup, which he then ceremoniously tossed into the media section to one very unlucky reporter.

Both gloves came off and were tossed into the crowd for some lucky fans. Lewis then threatened to remove his underwear, but instead settled for mooning the audience.

“I appreciate St. Louis for letting me show my naked ass tonight,” Lewis said during his post-fight interview.

When the wins come, so do the celebrations. Saturday’s win was his second in three fights. It didn’t come without some struggled. Nascimento presented some problems with Lewis in the clinch and on the ground, but ultimately a big overhand right and follow-up punches sealed the deal.

Nascimento had a three-fight winning streak snapped with the loss.
