    In his post fight conference interview. He mentions 3 names he thinks make sense for him next. Ngannou, Blaydes and Overeem.

    He should definitely fight Ngannou or overeem and avoid Blaydes like the plague.

    Overeem makes the most sense rn, then maybe Blaydes if he beats the Reem.

    Blaydes. Both are talking on twitter and trying to make it happen as of now. Plus Lewis said Reem already ducked him for like 3 times.

    Francis, I don't see either of them letting the rematch be a stinker.

    Title shot. No one but Francis is ahead of him and he’s already beat Francis

    Reem or Blaydes
    Ngannou is next for title shot and no one wants to see a sequel to arguably the worst HW fight in UFC history

    Vs. Ngannou is a terrible fight for the fans.
    Vs. Overrem is a terrible fight for the fighters (BB KOs Reem, who cares? BB gets KOed by Reem and he's suddenly miles from a title)
    Vs. Blaydes...makes sense...but I think Lewis is afraid of Blaydes.

    Absolutely he should rematch with Alexander Volkov. This will be the fight to see if Lewis’ win was a fluke or not as Alex was cruising to an easy decision win until he got caught in the last 10 seconds of the fight.

    I want to see him against Ngannou again. No way it turns out boring like the first fight. Lightning never strikes twice (hopefully)

    Reem for sure. Its a fresh match-up and is more likely to be exciting than the Blaydes option. Good on Lewis winning 3 straight tho

    I agree there going to be swinging next time around. Ngannou especially has changed since his fight with Lewis.

    I’d go Overeem. It’d be a hell of a fight but I think Black Beast finds his chin.
