A fmr. Trump supporter, UFC heavyweight contender Derrick “the Black Beast” Lewis was recently praised for 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 distanced 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 mang. I beliebe Trump gonna lower mah taxes.”
- 2018: “I’m not a Trump guy…[he just made me laugh]…but now he gettin’ mor’ raciss.”
