You may recall UFC HW contender Derrick “the Black Beast” Lewis was praised for endorsing Trump, and saving Confederate flag-wielding racists during Hurricane Harvey.
But heading into his most high-profile fight against Francis Ngannou at UFC 226, the Beast has begun distancing himself from Trump’s Nazi regime:
- 2016: “Yeah, I’m a Trump guy!”
- 2017: “I’m a Trump guy…I don’t need mah taxes goin’ any higher man. I believe Trump gonna lower mah taxes.”
- 2018: “I’m not a Trump guy…[he just made me laugh]…but now he gettin’ mor’ raciss.”
