Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight No. 3 contender, Curtis Blaydes, will attempt to keep his spot in line while also exacting revenge on a past foe when he collides with former title contender Francis Ngannou at the upcoming UFC Fight Night 141 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Fight Pass, set for Sat., Nov. 24, 2018 inside Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China.
Blaydes (10-1, 1 NC) and Ngannou (11-3) first went to war back in 2016 with “The Predator” scoring a second-round technical knockout (TKO) by way of nasty eye. That was the last time the red-hot “Razor” tasted defeat, winning five of his next six with one “no contest.”
As for Ngannou, he seems to be going in reverse, having dropped his last two bouts, including his UFC 220 shellacking at the hands of former champion Stipe Miocic. The Cameroonian followed that up with a horrendous effort against Derrick Lewis at UFC 226, which also resulted in a unanimous decision defeat.
