In 8 days, Francis Ngannou will defend his heavyweight title against Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 and this will be Francis’ last fight in the UFC on his current contract. He is now in negotiations with the UFC but the exchanges are still at a standstill.
Yesterday, Francis Ngannou returned to his future contract and will not accept it under his current conditions (via bjpenn):
” No, I will no longer fight under my current contract. I will no longer fight for $ 500,000 or $ 600,000. It’s over. I took this fight for personal reasons, because I want to make sure that I can settle my case and finish the scheduled fights.”
The more time passes, the more Francis Ngannou is ready to leave the UFC. Disagreeing with the promotion for a long time now, he knows he weighs heavier since becoming champion and has his say. He also wants to do boxing and wants that to show up in his potential future contract:
” I need to box, it’s mandatory. We have been having discussions for years. They seem to be okay with that. Let’s be honest, I really believe that whatever you do – whatever the event – if the UFC is involved, that will only make it bigger. there is no doubt. So, yeah, if I boxed, I would like the UFC to be in the game. Honestly, the only reason we’re here is that at some point there was no good faith in this matter. I don’t understand why we can’t come to an agreement. “
