Alistair Overeem Accepts Francis Ngannou Challenge

Published On September 7, 2017 | MMA News

A potentially violent battle between two dangerous strikers has apparently been arranged with the help of a few boxy cartoon figures.

Former Strikeforce and DREAM champion Alistair Overeem (43-15 MMA, 8-4 UFC) today took to Twitter to accept a recent challenge from fast-rising heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou (10-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC), suggesting the Cameroonian native is “trying to skip the line.”

Ngannou was supposed to compete at this weekend’s UFC 215 event against former heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, but the Brazilian was ruled out due to a potential doping violation. Ngannou later challenged Overeem to step up on short notice, but Overeem declined.

However, it appears he’s now ready to take the fight at a later date.

Overeem is currently ranked No. 2 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings, while Ngannou sits at No. 9.

So let’s hear it – if this matchup does come together, who ya got?
