Derrick Lewis was never that good .

Funny guy but not really Championship material.

Man I need to start following this sport again. I've missed the last year or so except for an event here and there.

How do you define a HW being good or not? He's big, he's strong, can punch and won the title against one of the best HW's ever. He deserves some respect.

I rate people based on skill level.

I think the modern heavyweights are less skilled and more explosive and physically fit. You see less and less of Fedor Nogueira types and more and more Lewis and Ngannou type.

I just don't see them having long careers if they don't expand on the tools we've covered above.

My original comment is more lamenting that this was Derrick Lewis' big chance and once again, he didn't really show much improvement
