Video: Derrick Lewis sweats it out (literally) on ‘Hot Ones’ but conquers those spicy wings

·1 min read

UFC heavyweight Derrick Lewis says he loves spicy food, but several spicy wings into the “Hot Ones” lineup, he was far from OK.

Lewis appeared on the latest episode of the popular internet series on YouTube with host Sean Evans and since we all know how much Lewis loves Popeyes’ Chicken, I’m sure he was as elated as we were when he got the invitation to the show.

Lewis seemingly was getting through just fine until the Da Bomb Beyond Insanity sauce almost had him wanting to take his shorts off. Lewis started to sweat profusely, needed water, milk and towels to regain his composure. To his credit, he made it all the way through the vaunted “wings of death!”

Watch the video above to see Lewis take on some seriously spicy wings while discussing how he got started in MMA, his favorite knockout, and much more on “Hot Ones.”
