The Cameroonian-French star could return to the famed Octagon on April 18 if his huge bout with Jairzinho Rozenstruik moves to the UFC 249 card.

And the 33-year-old is looking better than ever as he took to social media to reveal his supreme shape.

He uploaded a picture of himself in preparation for his fight on social media, accompanied with the caption: "We are just waiting on location."

Ngannou vs. Rozenstruik was supposed to happen this weekend at UFC on ESPN 8 in Columbus, Ohio.

But the event has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, but Dana White is hoping to reschedule his clash with Rozenstruik for UFC 249.

The fighter says he has been tested for the disease and spoke about potentially fighting next month.

"I got tested. They got me tested for COVID-19," he said. "I guess they tested all the fighters, too, which is kind of like a positive thing. Make you feel a little bit safe to get along with those people.

"There's a chance that I can be fighting on that card. But you know they have to settle everything down.

"For now, it seems like they have a location but they still have to double check and see how they can handle this event safely for people. Because first of all, they're not just expecting to put people there fighting. They're also trying to make things to care about our health."

Ngannou's riding a three-fight win streak following his defeat to Derrick Lewis in 2018. He's picked up first-round stoppage victories over Curtis Blaydes, Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos.

Rozenstruik, meanwhile, is 4-0 inside the Octagon which includes stoppage victories over Andrei Arlovski and Alistair Overeem.
