Francis Ngannu’s second UFC heavyweight ranking could be a substitute for the title match between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier, who will complete the trilogy on August 15 at UFC 252, presumably in Las Vegas.
This was announced in the next issue of The Schmozone podcast by UFC President Dana White.
“Now we are discussing this with Ngannou ,” the head of the organization said. “I don’t know how far we have progressed in the negotiations, but yes, it’s obvious that if one of the guys fails to go on a duel, we would like Francis to replace”
Recall that at the moment, 33-year-old Francis Ngannou leads a series of four victories by knockouts, spending a total of less than three minutes in the octagon.
