The 2022 Professional Fighters League heavyweight champion Ante Delija wants to lock horns with the recently-signed Francis Ngannou to see who’s the best.
Delija (23-5, 7-2 PFL) might have a narrow window to make it to this year’s PFL playoffs and attempt to recapture the championship. “Walking Trouble” is still at zero points in the standings as his scheduled clash with Yorgan De Castro was canceled after Delija withdrew for undisclosed reasons. Now, the Croatian fighter is set to face Maurice Greene in the 2023 PFL 5 headliner on June 16. Ahead of his clash, Delija confessed he aims to confront former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight titleholder Francis Ngannou, who recently signed with PFL and is looking for an opponent. According to Delija, capturing the heavyweight title twice would put him in a favorable spot to collide with Ngannou. Delija stated that fighting Ngannou is his biggest motivation as he wants to face the best in the mixed martial arts game.
