Although Derrick Lewis only added to his wave of momentum, by knocking out Travis Browne at UFC Fight Night 105, the heavyweight plans to take a break.

Lewis took some hard kicks from Browne in Sunday’s headliner, but he came out aggressively in round two and finished the latter with a vicious series of punches. After the bout, Lewis reported the following, while discussing his future (quote via MMA Junkie):

“It’s causing trouble at home, because I’m walking around with an attitude all the time,” said Lewis, who has fought five times now since Febraury, 2016 began. “Because once I get in beast mode, I’m in beast mode all the way until fight day. I just want to relax my mind a little bit and work on things at my house.”

“I’ve already blocked my coaches and managers,” he added, “like they’re some side chicks and put their name ‘Do not answer.'”

With the win over Browne, the 32 year-old Lewis extended his winning streak to six. During the run Lewis has finished five opponents.
