For the past 20 months, Derrick Lewis vs Francis Ngannou held the title for the most boring fight in the UFC history. The pair fought at UFC 226 and Lewis won the fight via unanimous decision.

In this fight, there was literally no action as Lewis threw 20 strikes to that of Ngannou’s 15. The fight was so bad that the referee Herb Dean had to stop the fight to tell the fighters to give fans more action.

The fans present at the Arena booed both the fighters throughout the three rounds. It didn’t look like any fight would do worse than this until UFC 248 that took place earlier this month.

In this fight, Israel Adesanya defeated Yoel Romero over five rounds in a horrendous match. The way UFC 248 went made Derrick Lewis extremely happy.

I’m happy that it ended the way it did. You know, because, everybody was giving me and Francis hell for a long time, talking about our fight being the boringest fight ever. So, I’m glad they got to have beat us!” Lewis told Ariel Helwani,

Derrick Lewis wants a rematch with Francis Ngannou

Despite how the fight ended, Derrick Lewis wants to fight Francis Ngannou again. Lewis revealed that when they fought the first time around, he wasn’t his complete self and was struggling with back problems.

We gotta do a rematch, me and Francis, we gotta do a rematch. Man, we got to because I had back problems, and I wasn’t training the way I was supposed to for that fight. And so I’m on it now, so we got to. I guarantee it will be more entertaining than what it was. It’d be at least one punch more than it did last fight.” ( H/T – LowkickMMA)

Derrick Lewis is riding on a two-fight winning streak. He has defeated Blagoy Ivanov and Ilir Latifi in his last two fights. On the other hand, Ngannou is on a three-fight winning streak. He has defeated the likes of Junior Dos Santos, Cain Velasquez and Curtis Blaydes in his last three fights. All his last three-fights ended in first-round via knockouts.
