Derrick Lewis is a UFC heavyweight brawler who pushes the 265-pound weight limit. And so "athleticism" isn't exactly the first word that comes to mind to describe him.

This video of Lewis doing a backflip into a pool following UFC Fight Night 110 weigh-ins kind of changes that perception, though.

Aside from the fact that could've been a total disaster just one day before his main-event fight vs. Mark Hunt, that was wholly and completely impressive.
