Good luck to both guys here but I really don't see any man currently fighting actually beating Francis. What a shame Francis apparently doesn't agree with me.

You shouldn't be able to call a champion "undisputed" anymore if there is an interim champion in the same weight class, or even if he was beaten at a different weight.

I find it kinda weird that he was talking about Stipe taking some time off due to his eye injuries/being a first responder "holding up the division" and now the moment Ngannou wins the championship he doesn't want to fight and doesn't even give a reason that I've seen

UFC has signed an agreement with Toyota center in Huston, so they had to have a Derek Lewis title fight, who is from Huston to fight, in Toyota center and in Aug. They asked Francis, he said he is on vacation and can not do it. So they had to make the interim title happen with Gagne. It's just business. And this all really helps Francis too. Makes his fight with the winner much bigger PPV

Shame ufc. Dana hated Stipe from day one. He was unwanted champ. And now ufc wants to put Stipe out of the sport of mma FOREVER. This is the real purpose of all this strange things and dirty, little games happening in top of heavyweight category. They could easily make a build up for trilogy fight Stipe vs Ngannou 3, and people would LOVE IT! Shame ufc.

As much as I don't like sidelining Francis, I also don't like how he was so pissed off about not getting to fight for the title sooner and wasting his prime wating for the shot, yet he after becoming champ, he has shown no interest in being really active unlike Stipe. If he does fight again this year, then it's not an issue at all, but if he doesn't fight very often, then it'll look really bad for him.

Francis can be a huge star, but he definitely has management and image problem. They have mishandled a lot of situations where Francis doesn't come off good. UFC must be pissed. They can put a fake interim title belt on that main event, but the reality is that UFC 265 is a very very weak card.

What is everyone's thoughts on a requirement to fight 2 times a year unless they cannot due to a medical clearance. Also fighters not be allowed on the list of best lb per lb fighter unless they have fought over the past year. I personally also feel we all should have the right to know who selects in this catagory. Long breaks such as over 18 months with no valid reason should be a automatic removal from the ufo imo. Your thoughts?

Brilliant move by Dana. All Francis has to do is grab his phone and call Adesanya and listen to Israel's advice and it's as simple as that. I love Derrick Lewis but no human currently fighting can touch Francis period. If Gane had the stuff to compete with Francis he would have destroyed Volkov. Volkov's great but what would the new Francis have done to him seriously? If Francis pointed into the camera like Adesanya and said 'I want everyone. Line them up and I will destroy them all' he could be the biggest star in fighting and maybe all of sports. But instead, his first act as champ was to deny the fight everyone wants to see while I guess demanding to fight a LHW? How dumb is that?

They need Derrick for Houston. Ngannou couldn't come, they had to put an opponent to Derrick and Ciryl took the shot. If he wins, the fight between Ngannou and Ciryl, both coming from the "MMA Factory" in Paris, the most technical guy against the most powerful guy... Would be completely crazy for the UFC story telling. So yeh... it's a master move from Dana and the UFC to give them the interim title. It's genius

I think the UFC made this happen because they’re hoping Lewis beats Gane—because they’re afraid that Gane could beat Ngannou, and Gane wouldn’t make them as much money because he’s extremely intelligent and technical.

Weirdly enough this being a 5 rounder probably favours Lewis, just 10 extra minutes that Gane has to have perfect defence. I'd feel more confident in Gane getting a UD over 3 rounds but 5 has me worried for him.
