Renan Ferreira on Francis Ngannou’s loss

"I feel like Francis is a big name. He’s done a lot. He has a lot of big names on his resume.

I feel like a win against him puts me at the very top. Francis went out there and fought a specialist of the modality of boxing so, no harm there, it’s an admirable loss. I feel like he’s now going to go back to his roots in MMA, and come with everything he’s got to go back to the winning column”.
