Derrick Lewis Lands Deal For Free Popeyes Chicken For Life

Derrick Lewis has landed free Popeyes chicken for life. “The Black Beast” and Daniel Cormier will headline UFC 230 this weekend (Sat. November 3, 2018) in Madison Square Garden. Their feud might be the only in UFC history to originate over the disrespect of Popeyes chicken. Cormier and Lewis first exchanged words at a UFC press conference this past summer.

Lewis joked that Cormier “disrespected” Popeyes chicken in an old parody video. Three months later, Cormier and Lewis find themselves headlining an MSG card for the heavyweight title. In the wake of the feud, Popeyes has apparently thrown their support behind Lewis. ESPN’s Ariel Helwani reports Derrick Lewis has landed a deal with the fast-food chain and will receive free Popeyes chicken for life:

“Adding another layer to the fast-food war brewing heading into UFC 230, Derrick Lewis’ manager tells me took notice of defending its honor and have struck a deal with him heading into this weekend’s fight. Details to come.”

Lewis’ manager, Malki Kawa, confirmed that Lewis and Popeyes are now partnered up together:

“Lmao, Popeyes in Houston just called and gave free Popeyes for life and Derrick will be on the menu board, in addition to what corporate is doing. Let’s go d!”

Lewis addressed the new deal in a recent post on Instagram. He eats chicken shortly after wrapping up training inside the ring:
