Francis Ngannou Breaks Down Derrick Lewis Fight, Heavyweight Title Picture (UFC 226 FULL Scrum)
(Subscribe to MMAWeekly.com on YouTube)
In his last fight, Francis Ngannou faced the biggest opportunity of his career. But when it came down to the judges’ scorecards, he landed on the disappointing end of a unanimous decision in his loss to UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.
Now, one loss into his UFC career, Ngannou faces Derrick Lewis. A victory against Lewis, another top UFC heavyweight contender, would quickly propel Ngannou back into the thick of the heavyweight title talk.
Ngannou and Lewis square off at UFC 226 on July 7, 2018, in Las Vegas, but ahead of their match-up, Ngannou spoke with reporters and talked about the match-up and his future in the UFC.
