So Just How Badly Does Francis Ngannou Want to Fight Brock Lesnar?

So Just How Badly Does Francis Ngannou Want to Fight Brock Lesnar?

Now, he wants a huge fight to bounce back from his first UFC defeat.

Dana White recently said that he thinks Lesnar's return to the UFC could very well happen, and a lot of folks would love to see Ngannou throw hands at the former champ. The speculation going around is that with Jon Jones being on the sidelines, Lesnar would only return to the UFC for big fights and one of those fights could be against Miocic. He is, however, now contracted with the WWE, where he is expected to defend his Universal title against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 34 on April 8, with rumours that his deal expires afterward.

Lesnar has competed just once inside of the cage since 2011.

There's no question intrigue would be high for a showdown between the two heavyweight giants.

Plenty of fighters have called out Ngannou lately, perhaps on their own quest for the belt, but Ngannou's eyes are set on Lesnar and no one else. This led to Hunt filing a civil suit against Lesnar and the UFC to settle his grievances.

"Please Brock, come back my friend. We need you to put fun in this division", he said. We need you here.

"I fought a guy that was beneath me last time, so I want someone higher now", Hunt said referring to Blaydes. "By myself, I want Brock - Brock Lesnar". He then resurrected his MMA career with a one-time appearance at UFC 200, when he beat Mark Hunt via decision, however, this win was overturned to a no contest after he tested positive to estrogen blockers.

"Even Werdum, I want that rematch, but Ngannou would be a better match". It's the fight Ngannou wants and he had a message for Lesnar. Ngannou had moments of success in the opening two rounds but was unable to counter Miocic's wrestling-heavy game plan. He look very, very big and strong. And I really want to try that.

Francis Ngannou wants to face Brock Lesnar next.
