Breaking: Francis Ngannou Books His Return To Action, Will Try Not To Lose Three Straight

One of the most hyped fighters in UFC heavyweight history, Francis Ngannou was supposed to be the second coming of Mike Tyson.

Instead, after a hefty build up and promotion, Ngannou entered the UFC’s cage for his first and only title shot, and got smoked by then champion Stipe Miocic.

Insisting he would come back better than ever, Ngannou returned in July in a grudge match against Derrick Lewis, only to look like a shell of his former self and lose.

Now, the world’s hardest recorded puncher will face off with Curtis Blaydes in a rematch.

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani has it:

Curtis Blaydes vs. Francis Ngannou is scheduled to be the main event for the 11/24 card in Beijing, China, per sources. The fight has been agreed to but not yet signed. Story coming to @espn.
