Francis Ngannou once again silenced the critics and showed that he is number one in his category. There was a lot of controversy before this match, especially regarding Francis Ngannou's former coach and current Cyril Gane coach Fernand Lopez.
Francis Ngannou remained in a bad relationship with him, but there was also a lot of tension at the press conference between Gane and Ngannou before the match. Still, Francis Ngannou retained his belt, but was not pleased with Dan White's attitude toward him “It’s not simply money,” Ngannou told reporters at the UFC 270 post-fight press conference regarding his contract issues with the UFC, as quoted by mmajunkie “Obviously, money is a part of it, but it’s also the terms of the contract that I don’t agree with.
He believes that the UFC did not treat him as it should, and that he did not deserve to be in this position “I don’t feel like it’s fair. I don’t feel like I’m a free man. I don’t feel like I’ve been treated good.
It’s unfortunate that I have to be in this position, that I have to say that. "
"I feel like everyone should have the right to claim for what’s best for them. At the end of the day, we put a lot of work for this job and we take a lot on our body to make it happen, so we can have a fair and square deal”.
The contract should involve 3 fights or one year “In the past three years I have fought three times, so what does that mean? Once a year,” Ngannou said. “It wouldn’t be something strange. I’m not frustrated about anything, I’m at peace with my decision”.
Francis Ngannou does not seem to be under stress because of everything that has happened to him in the previous months, and he has really shown for the umpteenth time that he is a true champion and a brave man!
