A few days ago, Stipe Miocic said: “I want to retrieve my mines.” He hoped that the UFC and Cameroonian Francis Ngannou would organize a new battle for him, and the latter won the heavyweight title of Miocic.
“I’m working hard to reach 113 pounds. In the fight with him, I weighed 105 pounds, not because I planned it, but because I trained. I really will stick to the plan to gain weight and weight. I feel good, but the extra eight pounds of weight will help me because I will become stronger. He is a very good person,” said Miosic, who was defeated by Nganu in the second round. Eliminated.
Ngannou is expected to fight Jon Jones, but negotiations on this fight have reached a deadlock, and the Cameroonians are likely to enter an octagon with Derrick Lewis.
“Let Lewis go to Ngannou. After that, the UFC will undoubtedly try to fight Jones. Regardless of the negotiation process so far, it would be foolish not to try at least. What then? What if Ngannou wins After two games, He will have to fight at least once and win Miocic’s very strong argument for the third encounter with Ngannou. If the champion has a 2-0 advantage, then there is no way, but it is not the case. Their record is 1-1”, said Ariel Helwani, the most famous MMA reporter.
Helwani also commented on Miocic’s announcement that he will prepare differently for a new battle with the Cameroonians.
“Are you telling me that you don’t want to see the ten-pound Miocic go to Ngannou for the last time? Of course I will, and I know you do. Who else? Ciryl Gane? Alexander Volkov? Of course, but it’s not an easy one. Category.” In this case, failure will drop you to the bottom of the ladder. Miocic is still an important related name, and selling his last attack on the title will be very easy. Of course, there are a few things that is a crazy sport, but if you look at who the other people are, and things complement each other, Miocic will definitely fight for the belt next summer. Crazy things have happened. “
Miocic lost to Ngannou in the eighth competition for the championship belt. He won the UFC Heavyweight Championship against Fabricio Werdum in 2016 and has successfully defended the title four times since. He lost it twice, but after Daniel Cormier defeated the same fighter, he returned it to his own.
