UFC are moving on from Ngannou v Jones. Per the UFC are looking to book Nganno…



UFC pass from Ngannou v Jones. According to @arielhelwani, the UFC is looking to book Ngannou vs Lewis 2 for UFC 263 which takes place on June 12. Apparently, it doesn’t work in terms of timing for Francis, but the main story is that they don’t respond to Jones’ demands for more pay. It’s a shame because the GOAT consensus show against the most terrifying puncher in UFC heavyweight history is incredible, but I can respect Jones’ stance and also respect the UFC won’t wait for it. As you probably know, Derrick Lewis won a decision over Ngannou in a very lackluster performance from both men. Joe Rogan said on the show that the fight is on its way to “the most boring heavyweight decision ever.” Lewis and Ngannou have both expressed interest in fighting again to provide fans with an exciting showdown. I hope they deliver the rematch because if the two men go to war someone is going to sleep 💤
