UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou Has Been Sparring Two Fighters At Once And The Footage Is Insane

One sparring partner isn't enough for the monster that is Francis Ngannou.

The UFC heavyweight champion is preparing for his upcoming title defence against Cyril Gane and has been doing so by fighting two fighters at the same time.


Ngannou posted footage on his Instagram of him mixing it up in a handicap bout. With gloves and kickpads on, he is seen playfully throwing strikes at two different opponents.

With his unrivalled size and presence, the Cameroonian towers over both men and soon has one powerless in the ground-and-pound.

Ngannou is quite clearly not giving his maximum effort but we now absolutely want him to take on two fighters at the same time in a sanctioned bout.

Gane, Ngannou's next opponent, was actually a former training partner of his and his ex coach Fernand Lopez has claimed he tried to sabotage the interim champion's chances of making it in UFC.

The two were in the same vicinity at UFC 268 but Ngannou blanked Gane in footage that emerged online.

He called it a "confusing situation" and believes them crossing paths was set up by UFC.

"If I had passed Gane, I would have said hello," The Predator told Daniel Cormier on the DC check-in.

"If it had only been him, I would have said, 'Hey, what’s up?'.

"And if I had said hello to him without saying hello to Fernand [Lopez], it would also have caused problems. So it’s just a very confusing situation.

"A woman took us to our places, said Ngannou. And while she was guiding us, I (heard) someone talking to her on the radio. Then she turned around and we came back to (where Gane and Lopez were. How can it be a coincidence?

"The guy was ready with his camera as soon as I came around the corner and zoomed in on me. As if it were a movie scene! He was waiting for me."

Ngannou and Gane will settle matters inside the Octagon in the main event of UFC 270 in January.
