In the main event of UFC 270, Francis Ngannou defended his UFC Heavyweight Championship against Ciryl Gane. Ngannou employed a new strategy to his game as he used a lot of grappling in his five-round fight against Gane. He won the fight in the end as well.
Francis Ngannou then revealed that he did not feel like a free man whatsoever in the UFC. Ngannou even claimed that he gave up $7 million to get a better contract in the UFC.
Ngannou previously made it clear he wants to get into boxing to get better pay. Francis Ngannou also doesn’t know what he’s doing wrong to not get a huge payday like Logan Paul.
While speaking during Mike Tyson’s Hotboxin’ show, Mike Tyson stated that he believes Francis Ngannou can make a major payday if he goes into boxing.
“I think no matter what happens, seeing boxing right now, he’ll make a magnificent payday. They need to make that payday. He needs to go in there with Tyson [Fury] and make that payday.”
The CEO of Bellator also recently made it clear he wants to sign Francis Ngannou. We will have to wait and see if Francis Ngannou will truly leave the UFC to join Bellator or not
