Dana White discusses Francis Ngannou’s future in UFC


MMA – After Marquel Martin, it’s Dana White’s turn to talk about Francis Ngannou’s future in the UFC.

On January 22, Francis Ngannou will play very big. In addition to facing his former training partner for the undisputed heavyweight title, the Cameroonian could play his future in the UFC. Indeed, his fight against Ciryl Gane is the last of his contract. An extension is always possible. However, his tumultuous relationship with the organization does not give us any cause for optimism.

Lately, his manager, Marquel Martin, declared that the failure of the negotiations was “not about the money” and that the situation looked like “a stalemate”.

Today, it is Dana White who speaks about the contract of Francis Ngannou. The UFC President does not seem closed to negotiations. Nevertheless, he renews his criticisms of the management of the champion.

“Francis and I ran into each other the other night at dinner. We had a good discussion, ”White said on“ The Fight with Teddy Atlas ”. “He’s not at the end of his contract if he wins this match (against Gane). I think he still has one game with us after that. “

“I think Francis was badly advised, too, by some people who are not very bright,” he continued. “It doesn’t help either. When you have people behind you who have no idea what they’re talking about, it doesn’t help the situation. ”

“Look, I say it all the time, this sport is fun for me, I like to do that,” White said. “Contrary to the story going around, we’ve made a lot of people very rich. If you don’t want to be here, it’s no fun, neither for you nor for me. But they are all adult men and women, and everyone has to make their own decisions in life. “

Finally, the statements follow and resemble each other. We will therefore know more about the future of the “Predator” after his shock against Ciryl Gane on January 22.
