The Cameroonian star Francis Ngannou went toe to toe with the undefeated boxer Tyson Fury in the ring. Although the result didn’t go his way, Ngannou surprised everyone with his boxing skills. After this megafight with Fury happened, fans went online and trolled the UFC CEO Dana White for releasing Francis Ngannou. One fan could not believe that White let Ngannou walk away.

The UFC released Francis Ngannou in January, citing that both parties couldn’t agree on a convincing deal. As per Dana White, The UFC offered Ngannou a deal that would’ve made him the highest-paid heavyweight in UFC history. Yet, he declined, and fans were angry and disappointed at Ngannou for this decision. This led to fans calling Ngannou to say he had fumbled the bag. Now, the roles have reversed as Ngannou had made millions of dollars in a single night.

Francis Ngannou put on a stellar performance against Tyson Fury in the mega event of ‘The Battle of the Baddest.’ Although he lost the fight, it was a razor-close split decision. Also, Ngannou knocked down Tyson Fury with a left hook in the third round. Dana White must be shaken because once he brushed off this fight by calling it a ‘Gimick Fight’ and saying he wouldn’t make gimmick fights. However, Ngannou proved this was not a ‘Gimick Fight’ with his spectacular performance.

The UFC had fumbled in not keeping Francis Ngannou as he rose to a new level of superstardom. However, it resulted from a feud between Dana White and Ngannou. One could only imagine what would’ve been if they had worked it out. Now, Ngannou is looking forward to fighting in the PFL after signing a multi-million dollar with them.
