Derrick Lewis knocked out Travis Browne back in February. You wouldn't realize it from his Twitter feed Saturday night, though, because he was still swinging for the fences.

After Aleksei Oleinik tapped out Browne at UFC 213Lewis took to Twitter to kick his former foe while he was down:

While one can read into a meme superimposed over a painting of Jesus in a few ways, his message after was clear:

What Tom Brady is to football, Lewis is to shade.

For those seeking context, Browne and Lewis faced off at UFC Fight Night 105 earlier this year.

While the build-up was quiet, the aftermath was raucous. Lewis took to the microphone in his post-fight interview and brought up domestic violence allegations against Browne before courting his girlfriend (now fiancee), Ronda Rousey.

This irked Browne, and he fired back on Instagram in June when Lewis lost to Mark Hunt. After Lewis returned the favor on social media, the ball is once again in Browne's court.
