UFC heavyweight fighter Derrick Lewis told Joe Rogan that he smoked weed all week leading up to his unanimous decision win over Ilir Latifi in Houston's Toyota Center on Saturday at UFC 247.
"It was very important [to fight in Houston]," Lewis said per MMAFighting.com.
"That's why 24/7, all week I was smoking weed."
Lewis fights out of Houston and lives in Cypress, Texas, where he made news for saving people from flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.
UFC 247 marked Lewis' fifth professional MMA fight in Houston and second under the UFC promotion.
