Why the fuck is Stipe not in any discussion? Do they not want to give this guy another shot? Wtf?
I also don't think DC wants to rematch Stipe. Dude has too much to lose – his legacy and his big payday against Brock would take a massive hit with a loss. Meanwhile he gets to fight an often-injured guy a month after he received a 30 day medical suspension from the damage he took at UFC 229.
I'm a Lewis fan. The dude, like Ngannou, has a high performance ceiling. He's got that classic heavyweight style and is what you're looking for in that division. He deserves a title shot, but so does Stipe.o
I wouldn't have blamed either of these dudes for being inactive for another 9 months waiting for DC to retire, going on to fight each other for the vacant HW belt. Lewis coming back a month after the punishment he received at 229 isn't ideal, but I'm sure the dude is collecting a nice paycheck and won't have to go through an entire camp. Once DC retires, he'll have another shot at the title anyway.
