The words of Francis Ngannou against UFC they were too strong, so his discomfort was evident. Speaking to GQ, the African Heavyweight Champion of the world’s leading MMA company didn’t hold back. He shot directly at the company and its President, Dana White. He assured that he feels disrespected and that he doubts his power in there.
“I have that feeling they disrespect me. I was recently given the heavyweight champion of UFC, and months later they are talking about someone else being the champion. Sometimes I’m not even sure if I’m really the champion or not. I think it was all a business, and the UFC wanted to do a pay-per-view in Houston. It was not the right time for me, but they wanted to do it no matter what, “he began by saying Ngannou.
What’s more, Francis He highlighted: “Right before that, they asked me if I was ready to fight in September and I told them I would be more than ready. Then all of a sudden we saw that they had an interim title. I don’t know what really happened. It’s all from the end of the UFC. They will be the only ones who know what happened. There is one thing: if you say you understand the UFC, and how they do business, that means you don’t understand shit ”.
Ngannou is furious
“It’s like this: it can be very spontaneous, premature and decisions come out of nowhere. They just look like this: boom! But at the end of the day, things will get done. It’s just a matter of time. A lot happens behind the scenes, but people don’t see it and have their own opinion. Before my last fight UFC he wanted me to sign a contract and that contract was not right, “said the Cameroonian.
In conclusion, Francis Ngannou he dictated: “I am the Heavyweight Champion! And I want to be the heavyweight champion of UFC. But in this game, as you go along, you find out how political it is. The commercial aspect is not very pleasant, it is not as easy as the sport itself. Before the Stipe Miocic fight, the only thing the UFC talked about was how the Stipe winner and I would take on Jon Jones, and that never came. And here we are: with an interim title and everything ”.
