“[Francis] Ngannou has a lot of power, but I don’t think he’s very technical. However, I still believe he’ll surprise [Stipe] Miocic and knock him out. They both enjoy trading shots, so if Miocic doesn’t have the right strategy, that big black guy will knock him out. Ngannou is very confident and that can make a difference, if he really connects, you’re going down, as we saw with [Alistair] Overeem. I can already see myself submitting [Ngannou], though, and becoming champion again. That’s my goal, to have a third belt on my wall and I really do believe it’ll happen. I’m sure I’m next. I’ll be waiting for him in April or so.”
“I’ll wait [on the title fight]. I had two possibilities: to make a fight before, no matter who it is, or wait. As they will fight already in January, I prefer to wait What I did not want to do is stay in for a long time without a fight. Imagine if Stipe Miocic fights with Francis there in April, June or July, I do not know … Then I would have to wait for the guys to fight and then wait until I have a date to fight the winner. So, I thought the fight was good now, because I wait a little bit and, I imagine, it marks our fight in April or May. If Stipe Miocic wins, it would take him a little while to fight, but if Francis wins, I think he would fight then because he is very willing, wants to show service, he trusts his strength and he is very strong”.
