Uh...is Derrick Lewis allowed to do this? Sure, it didn't result in the KO he would've preferred, but the heavyweight fighter debuted an insane flying knee in his win by decision over Ilir Latifi. It doesn't look natural, but it counts all the same.

Somehow even better in slow motion!

Lewis is one of the best personalities in the sport, and that was on full display at UFC 247 in his hometown of Houston. Please, we need more of this, and perhaps less flying knees.
