Francis Ngannou teases big fight after meeting with UFC boss Dana White

Former title contender Francis Ngannou had a meeting with UFC president Dana White and now has some big news coming...

With three straight, first round finishes, two of them over former UFC champions, Francis Ngannou is in a great position in the UFC. He sits at #2 in the UFC heavyweight rankings, behind only reigning champion Stipe Miocic and former champion Daniel Cormier. There are big things coming Ngannou’s way, and he wants to make sure the fans all know something is coming.


Ngannou recently took to social media to announce that he just had a meeting with UFC president Dana White, and that he has “big news coming soon”.

Just had a very productive meeting with the boss man Dana White and Hunter Campbell,” Ngannou wrote. “Excited to get back to work. Big news coming soon.”

Ngannou debuted in the UFC in 2015 and lined up six impressive victories via finish, including a brutal knockout over former champ Andrei Arlovski. This eventually led to a title shot against Miocic at UFC 220. Despite a strong opening for Ngannou, Miocic would turn the tide and dominate the title challenger, winning via unanimous decision.

After this Ngannou faced Derrick Lewis in a lacklustre fight the the latter won via decision, but that was a huge disappointment to all the fans. Since then, though, Ngannou has knocked out all his following opponents in the first round. Two of them include former champs Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.

Should Francis Ngannou get the next title shot at heavyweight?
