Francis Ngannou is facing a tragedy that no parent should ever have to endure.

First reported by after learning of the situation from journalist Joseph Essamathe, the former UFC heavyweight champion’s 15-month-old son has passed away. No additional details have been revealed at this time. 

As the news started to make the rounds of social media, Ngannou wrote a message that seemingly confirmed the tragic turn of events.

“What’s the purpose of life if what we’re fighting tooth and nail to get away from is what finally hit us the hardest!? Why is life so unfair and merciless? Why does life always take what we don’t have? I’m fucking tired,” Ngannou posted.

Not long after, he shared another heartbreaking message.

“Too soon to leave but yet he’s gone,” Ngannou wrote on X. “My little boy, my mate, my partner Kobe was full of life and joy. Now, he’s laying without life. I shouted his name over and over but he’s not responding. I was my best self next to him and now I have no clue of who I am. Life is so unfair to hit us where it hurts the most. 

“How do you deal with such a thing? How can you live with it? Please help me if you have an idea because I really don’t know what to do and how to deal with this.”
