Ngannou Reacts To Dana White Ghosting Him When It Was Time To Get The Belt

Francis Ngannou’s contract situation has been widely reported – what nobody anticipated is that White was taking it personally. Prior to the fight White had downplayed the tensions between UFC, himself, Ngannou’s management and the champ himself saying:


‘I’ve been in contract drama for 20 years with people. It’s part of the business. I honestly don’t know where we’ll end up after Saturday.

‘We’ll see how the fight goes, we’ll see what happens and I’m sure we’ll figure it out one way or another.’

‘Francis and I have had our moments over the last several years. I bumped into him at dinner a few weeks ago and we had a good conversation. ‘

‘It was funny because we needed to talk. We needed to see each other and the universe made it happen.’

‘We’ll see how these things play out. I don’t blame Francis as much as I blame the not so very smart people that surround him.”


However once it was determined that Ngannou is a champion once again White ditched!

UFC Matchmaker Mick Maynard did his best to not overshadow the moment and hung the belt on the waist of Francis Ngannou.

Following the event White was once again missing in action. The post fight press conference – that he usually leads was hostless. It went on to feature 4 of the key fighters for UFC 270 – Moreno, Figueiredo, Ngannou and Gane.

And Ngannou even had to address the whole situation revealing that he had nothing to do with the switch.

 “I don’t know. You have to ask him,” Ngannou said when asked why White didn’t stick around to put the belt around his waist. “No, I did not have anything to do about that. I think that was their decision. I’m about to ask about that, too.

Ngannou’s agent Marquel Martin, who works for Creative Artists Agency (CAA) — a talent agency that’s also a well-known rival to the UFC owners at Endeavor released an insane text he is rumored to have gotten from the UFC brass.

? Just a small piece of what has been going on recently ?All for trying to do my job to the best of my ability. All supporting my brother Francis. All for trying to do what’s right and fair. All for believing in respect. I don’t share this for pity, I know I’m not perfect, but I share this to help show support and uplift Anyone who is or has experienced ANY type of racism, hatred, self-doubt, etc. I feel it trust me. Especially this week haha. It will be hard, it will be scary but stand strong and keep the faith.✊?
Also sharing because I am thankful for these experiences (trials). I have grown SO much. So thank you to my enemies, God bless you. I have grown in wisdom, I have grown in patience, I have grown in spirit and I have grown in knowing who I KNOW I am as a man…And I’m proud of myself.
A few lessons I’ve come to know and cherish;
* Put God (or your choice of faith) First ☝?
* The enemy doesn’t like light. Stay prayed up, stay covered??
* Family is everything ? (Shoutout to my amazing wife and prayer warrior – YUDA)
* Mental Health is important
* Integrity, Respect and Character > Money ?
* Be kind to others (even if it’s hard)
* Be grateful for those who GENUINELY Believe in you (family, friends & strangers)
* What is for YOU will be for YOU.(Maktub?)
* No weapon formed against you shall prosper ⚔️
LASTLY, thank you for all the POSITIVE and supportive texts, emails prayers, and DMs that I received*sorry if I missed you, but I see them*. It’s helped me beyond words. ❤️
Keep Fighting.
