Francis Ngannou, when we talk about a striker who sends heavy, often comes up in conversations. Logical, given that he managed to KO a good number of opponents in the Octagon and that his nickname “Predator” is not overused. Now, Ngannou is looking forward to his first title defense against Ciryl Gane at the end of next month.
Recently, Francis gave the name of the fighter who he believes is the best striker in MMA style (via bjpenn):
“If I had to name the best striker in MMA, it would be Jon Jones. But if we go for the kickboxing style, then I think it would be Ciryl Gane. But in MMA, I would say it’s Jon Jones. Because with his elbows and all that stuff he does… For MMA, those are perfect hits. “
Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones have a history in common, that of having brought to the fore the money issues between fighters and the UFC. Jon Jones hasn’t fought for almost two years due to contractual issues related to salary and Francis Ngannou is still uncertain about his future in the UFC.
