Johnny Walker claims he can beat Francis Ngannou today
This list of people willing to fight Francis Ngannou is seemingly getting shorter and shorter. Having rebounded from two worrying losses with a trio of blitzkrieg knockouts of Curtis Blaydes, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos, Ngannou has reasserted himself as the scariest fighter in MMA. Yet there is still one man ready and willing to step into the cage with the talented Cameroonian-Frenchman: Brazil’s Johnny Walker.
Walker, to remind, is not even a heavyweight, but a light heavyweight. Nonetheless, he is confident that if was locked in the cage with Francis Ngannou on this very day, he could win.
Johnny Walker made this bold proclamation with a single-word reply to a post on the UFC Brasil Instagram account.
UFC: Mention a name capable of defeating this man today.

“Mention a name capable of defeating this man today,” read the UFC’s Instagram post, which featured a photo of Ngannou (translations via Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting).
“Me,” Walker replied plainly.
