    At this stage, it's doubtful.

    That said, this is heavyweight, and almost anything can happen.

    The Francis fight was probably his last chance. He's still going to be ranked #2-3 but it's hard to see him getting a crack at the title against 2 guys that just finished him. He'd have to really get lucky with guys getting injured.

    At this stage, he should probably just take fun fights or go on a Rizin retirement tour.

    I think when N'gannou wins that title, you're gonna be looking at the actual Mike Tyson of MMA. I don't see him loosing it for a long time.

    Overeem's best chance was beating Stipe when they fought.

    Probably not, but wouldn't count him off.
    #2 at HW, anyway. He's like 2 win aways from a titleshot.

    He still makes more money so he's winning in his own way

    Does being an interim champ count? Wouldn't be surprised if they needed a card booster and did an interim hw title on the line at some point in the future, of which he'd be a front runner for. But I don't see him amassing a 3-4 win streak to then win the belt, no.

    Pre-USADA Reem, absolutely.

    Post-USADA Reem....is probably 1-2 losses from leaving the UFC and going back to gills sauced can crushing overseas.

    Your opinion of those two are fairly off, but I agree with this general statement.

    Every KO machine is billed as the next Mike Tyson. It makes me wonder how many people actually have watched Mike Tyson fights, there was a lot more to Iron Mike than just his power.

    That shit looks hopeless as fuck dude, by chance, like with Bisping. He could be given a short notice shot but other than that, nope... everyone with decent punching power has his number.
