In an interview with the Top Turtle Podcast (via MMA Fighting, Francis Ngannou said that his dream opponent in the UFC is Brock Lesnar, who currently competes for WWE. Here are highlights:

On wanting a fight with Lesnar: “I’d always like to see the match between me and Brock Lesnar. Two big dudes. I like that matchup. I’m excited for that kind of match as a fan. … I want to see that match.”

On how he would fare: “He’s big. Huge, as you say. But he’s not stronger than me. I’m stronger than him. I’m the best striker in the heavyweight division and the more powerful guy. I’m also a talented guy and I will deal with that very easy.”

On his fight with Stipe Mioccic: “I always predict KO. If he tries to stand up with me, he will not stand up too long. And I think he will probably try something. He’s a good striker, but he doesn’t know how dangerous I am.”
