Former UFC heavyweight title challenger Francis Ngannou is again eagerly looking for a title shot. While Ngannou is currently scheduled to face off against former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, he is hoping to get a victory in his next fight and then challenge for the title again.
Ngannou, who is scheduled to fight JDS in July at UFC 239, told reporters at the UFC Seasonal Press Conference that he was hoping to get a title shot after beating Cain Velasquez back in February but is clueless as to why he did not get one.
Ngannou also stated that he is hoping to secure a title shot after his victory over JDS at UFC 239. Here’s what he had to say:
After the last fight I thought I would get the title fight back, but it didn’t happen, I don’t know why. I’m so happy to have the fight against Junior. He don’t have the belt, but we all know he’s a champion. We have seen him since he comes back, he looks like a champ. I think after this there will be no issues with the belt, it’s the only thing that makes sense.
