Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou (36, Cameroon) is finally moving. It is expected to reveal its next move soon.
On the 14th (Korean time), Ngannou posted a 20-second video on social media, foreshadowing a major announcement.
The video begins by listing the headlines of articles that worry Nganuga about an uncertain future after his contract with the UFC ends.
However, Ngannou sits expressionless and stares at the camera. It is interpreted to mean that he does not care.
At the end of the video, the number “05.16.23” appears. It was a hint that there would be a major announcement on May 16, 2023. It seems that it will be May 17th in Korean time.
After ending his contract with the UFC, Ngannou held talks with several other organizations.
But he didn’t have any notable results. The Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship and One Championship were withdrawn from the negotiating table, saying that Nganoo was placing unreasonable conditions.
Unless Ngannou turns to the UFC, there aren’t many options now. There is only a small possibility of advancing into the PFL and boxing.
The world is paying attention to what kind of reversal card Ngannou will bring out in a major announcement.
Ngannou turned professional in 2013 and entered the UFC in 2015. He began to build a reputation for putting down strong men with fearsome punching power.
He failed to win the belt in 2018 when he failed to stop then-champion Stipe Miocic from wrestling, but in 2021 he avenged Miočić by KO and came out on top.
In January of last year, he overpowered Cyril Gan in wrestling to defend his title.토토사이트
Afterwards, Ngannou continued negotiations with the UFC over various conditions, and declared free agency (FA) in January of this year.
Until now, there has been a hiatus of 1 year and 4 months. Ngannou, who is 36 years old and not young, has to make a decision now.
