    Here it is. That looks significant, White and Ngannou haven't talked to each other since the Lewis fiasco, so I presume it's not just a random fight against Volkov. Since Jones has a fight and Rumble is still in "detox", what could that be? Title shot? Zuffa boxing opening against Tyson Fury? Intriguing, to say the least.

    Only a Stipe or Lewis rematch makes sense to me. DC will never fight him because he's obsessed with Stipe, and Big Frank has already beaten everyone else in the top 5 by first round KO. If he fights anyone outside of the top 5, it'd just be to stay active. He's already earned a title shot.

    Unless someone's got some insider info I'm going with it being a World Championship Chicken Wing Eating Contest.

    Whats utterly annoying about twitter is those stupid hastags.
    Uncrowned champ ... Is francis a cry baby ?
    The man had his chance, and its his own fault if Stipe made him his b for five round so why that stupid hastag ? Just to remind us he lost ?

    Dana White didn't meet with him to book his last 3 fights, that include Cain and JdS. It makes no sense that they would meet only to book Volkov. And Ngannou wouldn't write he's excited about it, and it's a "big news".
    But it could be for an agreement like Volkov + other big things for 2020.

    Not really any big fights to make. Rumble would be the biggest with Stipe and DC tied up. After that the only real option available is Volkov. It's probably Volkov.

    I don't doubt DC's courage, but I do doubt any sane man would want their retirement fight to be against that monster of a human being

    For sure. That was pretty much confirmed by Dana.


    I say that they throw a lot of money to Francis to headline in Paris against Volkov.

    Oh, and a TS guaranteed if he wins.

    Nah Rumble said that they spared already and that Ngannou cliped him. I guess thats the reason he goes back to 205. Frank is just bigger and better version of him. Still, he haas a chance unlike beatimg Jones or someone from new guys will probably smoke him too.
