Francis Ngannou is a Cameroonian-French professional martial artist and the current UFC Heavyweight Champion. Also known as “The Predator”, Ngannou is the record hardest puncher in the UFC to date. Moreover, Francis occupies the #5 spot in the UFC’s Men’s Pound For Pound Rankings.
Hailing from a small town in Cameroon, Ngannou spent his childhood in poverty and little formal education.

As a result, Ngannou faced two-month imprisonment in Spain for illegally crossing the border.
Following a short stint in the French promotion “100% Fight”, Ngannou made his way to the UFC. After making a remarkable debut against Luis Henrique, Ngannou began establishing himself as a serious contender in the Heavyweight division. Moreover, Ngannou racked up knockouts against the likes of Overeem, Dos Santos, and Rozenstruik. Recently, Ngannou beat Stipe Miocic at UFC 260 to become the new heavyweight champion.

Francis Ngannou has also opened the first MMA Gym in Cameroon under The Francis Ngannou Foundation. The gym serves as a chance and an opportunity for the children and the youth who aspire to make a career in mixed martial arts.
“I want to give some opportunity for children like me who dream of this sport and don’t have an opportunity like me. The last time I was in Cameroon, I brought a lot of materials for boxing and MMA to open a gym. Now I just bought a big space to start the gym, as well”.
Francis Ngannou also had a successful NFT collaboration with BossLogic. Following his victory over Stipe Miocic at UFC 260, Ngannou took to social media to showcase this success.
Important to note that proceeds from this will help the Francis Ngannou Foundation. I'd consider that a massive dub.
