Lou Giordano joins Derrick Lewis ahead of UFC 244

Derrick Lewis is looking to rebound after a loss to Junior Dos Santos. Before his fight against Blagoy Ivanov at UFC 244, Lewis brought weight management specialist Lou Giordano onto the team.

Giordano, of LouTrition, has worked with some prominent names in MMA including Jon Jones, Johny Hendricks, etc. Most recently, Giordano has worked with Brave FC Jose “Shorty” Torres and Bellator fighter Valerie Loureda. A teaser post was made earlier last week from Lewis where he claimed, “I’m not cutting weight, I’m losing it.” On Sunday Giordano posted a photo with Lewis in Houston.

“So far it’s been great working with Derrick because he’s super motivated and listens really well,” Giordano stated.

So what can we expect from Lewis on the LouTrition plan? the game plan is to see a lighter and faster Lewis.

“The plan is to get Derrick down about another 15 pounds or so and just maintain that weight right up until the fight,” Giordano said.

“He’s lighter than ever and faster with just as much power, if not, more,” Giordano finished.

One thing is certain, Lewis’ personality and Giordano’s weight management will certainly make a fun fight camp.

Derrick Lewis will be the co-main event against Ivanov at UFC 244 in Madison Square Garden Saturday, Nov. 2.
