Lewis Returning To Bellator?

Written By: Eric Hostetter

TheCageDoor.net has learned that Silverback Fighter Derrick “The Black Beast” Lewis has been invited back to Bellator.

Lewis (5-2-0) said he got the call on Friday, September 2nd. He stated that Bellator called to see if he would be interested in coming back and fighting for the promotion again.

“Of course I am interested,” he said about the call. “First thing I want to do is see how I feel after my fight Saturday, since this is my first fight being in this new sleek body.”

“Oh, and go Texans,” he added.

The new sleek body Lewis is refereing to is his weight cut. Lewis is planning on dropping down from heavyweight to 205 in the future and has been on a strict diet that has seen him shed almot 30 pounds.

Lewis looked very impressive in his win Saturday night against Jay Peche, finishing the fight early in the first round. He looked much leaner in the cage and it didn’t seem to affect his strength at all.

No word yet on when Lewis would make his return should he accept the invite.
