Francis Ngannou Asks For Stipe Miocic Title Fight In December

The UFC was looking to pair Stipe Miocic with Jon Jones for his heavyweight title.

Now that Jones has failed a drug test, another contender is asking for that shot.

Francis Ngannou is requesting to meet Miocic after having his planned September fight with Junior dos Santos scrapped when “Cigano” failed a drug test of his own.

Since signing with the UFC in 2015, Ngannou (10-1) has won all five of his fights via finish, including a January stoppage win vs. former champion Andrei Arlovski.
