Francis Ngannou Says Brock Lesnar Is His Dream Fight

Francis Ngannou Says Brock Lesnar Is His Dream Fight”

With the win, Ngannou has earned a shot at the UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and the two are reportedly being targeted to fight at UFC 220 in January.

Already, the two combatants exchanged barbs even before the fight was announced. A victory for Miocic would break the record for consecutive title defenses by a UFC heavyweight champion, a mark that now sits at two. He's only lost to dos Santos by split decision and Stefan Struve by TKO in his decorated fight career.

There is perhaps the expectancy that a fight between Joshua and Ngannou could produce a similar level of interest, although the British fighter has so far not taken any notice of champion Miocic's recent challenge towards him.

After Ngannou's knockout of Alistair Overeem on the main card of UFC 218, everyone in attendance knew we had ourselves a new No. 1 contender, and this would be made official by Dana White in the post-fight press conference. Miocic won the UFC Heavyweight Title back at UFC 198 after knocking out then champion Fabricio Werdum in the opening round.

Although dos Santos landed 12 strikes early in the round, including leg kicks that caused instant swelling in Miocic's left shin, the champion withstood the damage and landed 26 of his 56 strikes (46 percent).

Ironically enough, that last loss set Miocic on a path to five straight knockout victories. The win gave him an undefeated 6-0 record in the UFC, with all of his victories coming by way of stoppage, including his last four in the first round.
