Francis Ngannou made waves in the world of mixed martial arts (MMA) by signing an exclusive, multi-fight contract with the Professional Fighters League (PFL).
Earlier this year, Ngannou parted ways with the UFC due to a contract dispute, but now he is ready to make his PFL debut with a bang.
As part of this groundbreaking agreement, Ngannou will not only be stepping into the cage but also taking on a new role as the chairman of PFL Africa.
His immense talent and experience will undoubtedly be an asset to the league’s growth and development.
In an exclusive interview with “The New York Times,” PFL CEO Peter Murray expressed his delight at Ngannou’s arrival, stating, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Francis Ngannou to the Professional Fighters League. He is an exceptional athlete and a true powerhouse in the world of MMA.”
With his star power and captivating fighting style, Ngannou is set to captivate audiences and leave a lasting impact on the world of MMA.
“This is not an athlete deal. Francis is an icon today in the sport, he is the best in the world at what he does, but he’s in business with the PFL. We’re in business together,” Murray
In addition to the PFL, Ngannou will have the opportunity to explore the world of boxing. ‘The Predator’ recently made an appearance on “The DAZN MMA Show,” where he shared insights about his interest in boxing.
“Anthony Joshua is a fight we like. We spoke with Eddie (Hearn) once, but that was when Joshua was about to fight (Jermaine) Franklin.
“If we bring this to Africa, then it is going to be massive. I think this will get him (Joshua) excited, that he can fight in this continent,” Ngannou
