Francis Ngannou vs. Derrick Lewis set for UFC 226 *POLL*

A highly anticipated heavyweight bout between Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou is finally on.

Lewis (19-5-1 MMA, 10-3 UFC) and Ngannou (11-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC) will meet at UFC 226, according to reports from MMAFighting.com and ESPN.com, in what promises to be a slugfest between the two big men. A person with knowledge of the situation subsequently confirmed the news to MMAjunkie.

UFC 226 takes place July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.

Lewis has called out Ngannou numerous times over the course of his UFC tenure. The most recent came following his knockout of Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night 126 in February. Lewis already fired off the first salvo on Instagram with a comedic flare.

The fight will mark Lewis’ 14th UFC appearance since 2014, which is the most of any heavyweight on the roster.

Ngannou will enter UFC 226 looking to rebound. After surging up the divisional rankings with some massive knockouts, “The Predator” challenged champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 220 in January. He was dominated, though, and lost via unanimous decision for his first octagon defeat.

The latest UFC 226 card includes:

Champ Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier – for heavyweight title
Champ Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega – for featherweight title
Raphael Assuncao vs. Rob Font
Khalil Rountree vs. Gokhan Saki
Yancy Medeiros vs. Mike Perry
Paulo Costa vs. Uriah Hall
Derrick Lewis vs. Francis Ngannou

Interesting how most people(including me) fell off that hype train after Stipe exposed FN's cardio and poor ground game.

I'm not so sure he's had enough time to fix his weaknesses.

All I can say is this is exciting and someone is going to get hurt.

People are already writing off Ngannou. If he works hard on his wrestling he can still be a killer.

Francis is much more technical with his striking and Lewis doesnt have much wrestling to threaten with. Safe bet is with Francis, but then again, its never a safe bet with the HW division
