In what is a testament to his name value and seemingly eternal mainstream appeal, Brock Lesnar was singled out by Ngannou as the man he would most like to fight next.
But if he does come back to the UFC for another run, he'll have some pretty stiff competition to face ... like Francis Ngannou, for example. "We need you here", Ngannou said. We need you here. "I need to give me the fight, this is what I have been waiting for and training for".
If Lesnar did return to the UFC, he would have to unretire to re-enter USADA's testing pool and serve out the seven months left over on his suspension.
The 31-year-old Ngannou didn't stop with Lesnar, though, as he heard murmurs that undefeated boxer Joshua is considering making the switch to MMA. I think I can prove it, and maybe not in this fight, but I have had a very good strategy of wrestling defense for my previous fight. "We gonna do it both sides, in the Octagon and inside the ring".
"It's up to what [the UFC] want to give me", he added. "There are a lot of people out there who want to fight me". 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. "I really want to try that". He look very, very big and strong.
Given Lesnar's incredible drawing power and his enduring in-cage relevance, the Beast Incarnate stands as the most intriguing opponent for every heavyweight fighter in the UFC.
Following Monday's WWE Raw in Dallas, TMZ Sports spoke with Lesnar's advisor, Paul Heyman, who claims that of course Ngannou wants a fight with Lesnar.
