Will Francis Ngannou Meet Brock Lesnar in The Octagon?
Francis “The Predator” Ngannou, former heavyweight title contender, is at quite an interesting point right now in his impressive MMA
Actually, Ngannou has lots of options for fights in the immediate future, following his loss to Stipe Miocic at UFC 220. At the event, we witnessed the heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic successfully retain his title in the battle, by scoring a dominant decision win over Ngannou.
Ngannou seemed gassed when the first round ended and he went on to lose in a lopsided manner. After the bout, Ngannou informed his supporters that this fight was a great learning experience for him. Though he had periods of success in the opening rounds, Ngannou was unable to counter Miocic’s game plan.
Since then, Ngannou has challenged Brock Lesnar, and there’s no doubt that he’s eager to fight Lesnar.
“Please Brock, come back, come back my friend. We need you here. Wen eed you to put the fun in this division. I need you to give me that
f*cking fight I’ve been waiting for for a long time, I’ve been dreaming for.” These were Ngannou’s words in interview on The MMA Hour, which was also was shared on Live Online Casino.
UFC President recently made an announcement about the possible return of Lesnar, and the rumors and speculation around it are widespread. One of them is regarding the fact that Jon Jones and Lesnar have talked about fighting each other in the past. In addition, it’s believed Lesnar would only to return to the cage for big fights, and one of those fights could potentially be against Miocic down the line.
The former UFC champion Lesnar holds remarkable wins over Randy Couture and Frank Mir, and “The Super Samoan” Mark Hunt is the last fighter to have fought Lesnar (at UFC 200 in 2016). Lesnar won a unanimous decision in the fight, which was later overturned, when it was uncovered he failed two USADA issued drug tests before the fight. As a consequence Hunt filed a civil suit against Lesnar and the UFC to settle his claims.
“It’s up to what UFC want to give me,” Ngannou added in the aforementioned interview. “There are a lot of people out there who want to fight me. I saw Mark Hunt, he would be a great one. By myself, I want Brock. Brock Lesnar.”
