During this time, Ngannou still has not extended its contract
a feat that will not avoid in Ngannou a passage obliged by the operating table before being able to train and possibly fight again. A bad news that intervenes while Cameroonians, in conflict with the UFC, does not even know if he will sign again or if he can continue his career. The former clandestine and SDF wants its salary that it considers incorrect is revised upward, but the most prestigious organization of MMA does not hear this ear and the negotiations around the possible extension of " Predator "are always at a dead point so far. Ngannou even revealed recently that he had refused a $ 7 million of UFC. Immobilized for a long time, the native of Batié will try to change the ideas on his land, where he will spend the coming weeks and where he can celebrate this victorious defense of his title at the expense of Gane. In Cameroon, the local hero can also think about if he wishes or not to afford an English boxing interlude to challenge the Tyson Fury World Champion. After his success last weekend, the champion had suggested that he would prefer to challenge the "Gipsy King" than to give revenge to Gane.
