Francis Ngannou, aka “The Predator,” has been in talks with various promotions for months now, and it looks like he’s finally ready to make an announcement about his future in combat sports. After being unable to reach an agreement on a new deal with the UFC, the reigning heavyweight champion became a free agent earlier this year. It was a surprise move for the UFC to let him walk away, but Dana White has maintained that it was due to Ngannou’s demands for a new contract.

Fans have been eagerly waiting to see where Ngannou would end up, and he recently dropped a video on Twitter hinting at an upcoming announcement on May 16th. It’ll be exciting to see where he decides to take his talents next and what new challenges and opportunities await him.

As soon as Ngannou parted ways with the UFC, everyone wanted a piece of him. However, it hasn’t been a smooth ride for the heavyweight champ since he hit the free agency market. It’s been an interesting journey to say the least, but we’re all excited to see what the future holds for him.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champ Francis Ngannou Teases Exciting News on the Horizon

Many people have been keeping a close eye on Francis Ngannou’s free agency journey, and it’s clear that some bumps have occurred along the way. For instance, BKFC was one of the first organizations to publicly state that they weren’t interested in signing the 36-year-old fighter, and David Feldman even suggested that Ngannou’s value as a free agent might be dropping. This sentiment was shared by others in the combat sports world, but everything changed after “The Predator” had a meeting with ONE Championship.

When Francis Ngannou met with ONE Championship, the CEO Chatri Sityodtong announced that they were not going to give him an offer. However, it was later revealed by Ariel Helwani that the reason negotiations fell through was because the former heavyweight champion was already close to signing a deal with another promotion. Although no specific details were provided, many believe that the Professional Fighters League (PFL) is where Ngannou might end up.

We’re all waiting with bated breath to hear what Francis Ngannou’s announcement on May 16 will be, and whether it’ll put to bed all the speculation about where he’ll be fighting next. If he’s hoping to return to the UFC, he might be in for a shock – they’ve already moved on from him in the heavyweight division. So, the sooner he can get a deal done, the better it’ll be for him. Here’s hoping we get some answers soon!
