And now, “The Predator” appears ready to accept the challenge:
Derrick has been talking some of his sh*t while I was off . Can someone please let him know that I’m here now, so if he really wants me, he should send his manager to deal with @ufc

Prior to dropping a loss to Miocic, Ngannou had taken the heavyweight division by storm, winning six-straight UFC bouts with all ending by way of stoppage. His marquee win came this past December when he brutally knocked out veteran Alistair Overeem in the co-main event of UFC 218 in Detroit, Michigan.
Lewis, on the other hand, was riding a six-fight winning streak heading into a bout against legendary striker Mark Hunt last June, although he was finished by “The Super Samoan” in the fourth round of their headlining bout. Most recently, he bounced back with a vicious TKO victory over Marcin Tybura last month in Austin, Texas.
Would you like to see Ngannou and Lewis square off next?
