It’s the fight popular UFC heavyweight fighter Derrick Lewis asked for, and now he’s got it.
Welcoming the highly hyped former UFC title challenger Francis Ngannou back to the cage, this clash of heavyweights is set to go down this summer in Las Vegas.
Derrick Lewis has been pursuing the fight against Ngannou ever since Ngannou’s embarrassing loss to Stipe Miocic, earlier this year. And now the UFC has booked it.
These two are now set to fight at UFC 226, which goes down on July 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The night’s main event features a heavyweight title clash between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.
UFC 226 will air live on pay-per-view.
