Brandon Lewis is thirsty to put on an “exciting fight” for UFC president Dana White tomorrow at Dana White’s Contender Series.
Lewis (6-1 MMA) returns to DWCS for his second stint after falling short to Mo Miller in 2021 by unanimous decision. Dana White has clearly seen potential in the Connecticut-born, bringing him back under the lights for a second opportunity of attaining the dream of a UFC contract.
The twenty-five-year-old has his hands full as the man standing in the way of his dreams is an undefeated Peruvian, Daniel Marcos (12-0 MMA). Aware of the task at hand, Lewis expressed his excitement ahead of the “interesting matchup” and claimed he wanted to be a part of exciting fights, especially in front of Dana White.
Brandon Lewis Talks DWCS Bout
“I’m excited. Especially because I think it’s a really interesting matchup. It seems like he’s a striker. He’s got like seven knockouts on his record. A lot of finishes. It seems like he’s an exciting fighter. That’s the exact type of matchup that I want, especially fighting in front of Dana White. I want someone who’s going to go in and exchange with me, put on a good show, and make sure everyone talks about it afterwards. We want as much hype around this fight as possible.”
Lewis had nothing but positive words towards the UFC after his previous fight on the show and detailed the significant difference in how the organization treat you as opposed to when you’re climbing the ranks of the regional promotions.
“It was amazing. The UFC, one thing that I could say is that they really treat you well. Anyone that’s come up through the amateur, and then the local, regional promotions for pro. As you work your way up, you get treated a little bit better and better, but the jump from anything I’ve ever experienced before to how the UFC treats you is huge. They treat you really well. An amazing experience.
Fans are instantly drawn to fighters who leave it all on the line, come to fight and deliver, and luckily for those DWCS hardcore followers, Lewis undoubtedly falls into that bracket. Ahead of tomorrow’s fight with Daniel Marcos, Lewis let fans know what they are in for.
“Every second is violence. Every single second, every minute, I’m going to try and finish my opponent. I’m going to find a way, whether it be by knockout or submission. Whatever it may be. I try to put a definitive end to the fight. I don’t believe in leaving the decision to the judges.”
