Francis Ngannou Sensationally Reveals He Could Quit UFC

Francis Ngannou is unhappy with his current situation in UFC and has sensationally admitted he could leave the company.

The Cameroonian-Frenchman has won his last three fights in a row by first round stoppage and holds victories over former heavyweight champions Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.


But despite his impressive streak, he's having to wait longer than he wants to for a UFC heavyweight title bout with champion Stipe Miocic, who beat him in the main event of UFC 220 back in January 2018.

That's because UFC's desire is to book a trilogy fight between Miocic and the man he beat to win the title in August at UFC 241, Daniel Cormier.

And it's left Ngannou frustrated to the point where he's even talking about potentially free agency and fighting elsewhere.

"I asked about the title shot," Ngannou said in a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, via Low Kick MMA.

"And they said they have a trilogy between Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier and they don't know exactly what's going to happen because Miocic is recovering from an eye injury. So here we are.

"I'm not going to get stuck on a title short or whatever, just give me a fight. I am willing to fight anybody. Like, let's give Shamil, give me whoever you want me to fight and I will fight. But it's been over five months.

"I feel like that's how they want me to feel, to feel low. I don't have nothing else. They just put me here in a blind spot. Whatever. Maybe it would be good to fight all my three fights to fight out my contract because I might have options because I can't stay like this."

Ngannou's most likely next opponent is Jairzinho Rozenstruik, who called out 'The Predator' after knocking out Alistair Overeem last Saturday.

He challenged Ngannou after the fight and it seems as though both fighters are keen on mixing it up inside the Octagon.

Ngannou added: "At this point, I don't have many options, so yes, I'm interested as long as I have a fight, I can fight. He made himself very clear and loud about his desire to fight me."
