Francis Ngannou ‘Happy’ With Bidding Farewell To UFC Career

Francis Ngannou is not willing to let the UFC dictate his career.

He seems fine with leaving the UFC if the promotion does not agree with his stance of increasing his base purse amount for every fight.

The Predator has voiced a concern that we have often seen in the UFC. He has insisted that he will not renew or extend his contract if he will be paid around $500,000 to $600,000 per fight while other big names in combat sports are bagging millions of dollars.

He has even shown interest in going over to boxing and locking horns against WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury.

The Cameroon native recently spoke to Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour.

“If this is the end, man, I’m happy. From where I came from, I have done a lot. Some people might not see that. But I have done it, and I am very happy about that. I’m proud of myself man,” the UFC champ said.

“That might be my ego, but I’m proud of myself and of what I have achieved. I don’t want all this to like, take what I have, or to change me and my principles. My principle is still the same as day one.”

Ngannou is coming off a big win against the top contender for the heavyweight strap and his former training partner Ciryl Gane. He outwrestled Gane to win the title fight via unanimous decision.
