Dana White recently confirmed that Francis Ngannou vs Stipe Miocic will be taking place March 27th. The UFC President confirmed the fight during the Fight Night on ABC post-fight press conference.
Ngannou recently stated that he was looking for bigger fights going forward. A bout against the UFC Heavyweight Champion for the heaviest crown in the game may well be just that.
Francis Ngannou did also say recently that he wanted a shot at Jon Jones at Heavyweight. ‘Because right now, right here? It’s just lacking’ Ngannou stated, regarding the Heavyweight division. ‘I don’t know where I am. I don’t know what I am doing exactly. Having a fight is a good fight and having a big fight is a great thing. That’s something I’m looking forward to.’
‘I think I match up pretty well with Jon Jones,’ Ngannou continued. ‘He’s gaining weight now. He seems really big and strong, but I think I match up pretty good. He has some good skills that he can match my power. It’s going to be different.’
