Lewis also shares what his finisher in wrestling would be.

UFC Fight Night comes May 11 from St. Louis, Missouri. Headlining the card is Derrick Lewis (27-12-0) vs. Rodrigo Nascimento (11-1-0). As show day approaches, members of the media spoke to the fighters on the card.

Derrick Lewis took to the stage (via MMA Junkie) and was asked if he could move to WWE as part of the TKO merger. He stated that he is in talks with WWE.

What is the TKO? (Lewis responded when asked if there could be a crossover to WWE via a TKO merger)… Oh, yeah, yeah. We are currently in discussions. We’ve been talking for a few months now. I would go there in February to see everything.

Following up, Lewis said his finishing move in wrestling would be something similar to Rikishi’s Stinkface.

Um, it should be (my finisher in wrestling) something like Rikishi, you know?… Maybe you’ll see. Somehow I enjoy taking off my shorts. So maybe we’ll see something like that. Yes.
