UFC heavyweight title challenger Derrick Lewis wants second chance versus Francis Ngannou.
Lewis (21-7 MMA, 12-5 UFC) recently signed a new UFC deal. He struggled a back injury, but now feels refreshed.
“I would like to fight him again, If he gets to the title, then, yes, I’ll fight him again. I would love to fight him again if he gets the title shot.”

“I have to right the wrong. I can’t retire without fighting Francis again – at least get in a good shot on the guy. Goddamn, I wish I would have gotten a good shot on him. We’ll see how this year plays out.”
“My ass needs to sit down somewhere and learn some more technique or something,” Lewis said before. “I don’t deserve to call anyone out. With a performance like that, I don’t care if he is the No. 1 contender; I shouldn’t be fighting no one, really, with a performance like that.”
