Three months have passed since Francis Ngannou said goodbye to the UFC. The Cameroonian’s dream boxing debut has been connected to a number of well-known boxers, including Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, but nothing is official as of yet.Chael Sonnen thinks it’s time Ngannou swallowed his pride and contacted UFC president Dana White given the uncertainty surrounding his future.After a protracted contract renegotiation battle with the promotion, “The Predator” left the UFC early this year. Ngannou and White have both shut out the possibility of getting back together in the future since parting ways.
It’s possible that both parties will alter their minds now that the former UFC heavyweight champion’s future is uncertain.
Francis Ngannou’s choices were discussed by former UFC middleweight Chael Sonnen in a recent interview with MMA Junkie. Sonnen recommended that the Cameroonian make peace with Dana White and the UFC:”Let me explain this to you in context… On April 1, Tyson Fury joked on social media that his relationship with Francis was over and that they would square off at Wembley on May 15. A jest was told by Tyson Fury. Francis’ entire life has changed because he thought he was going to invent a sport and play it with a man who is now playing a joke on him. He needs to get up and make a contact to his boss.
