Francis Ngannou Signs Lucrative Multifight Deal with PFL

Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou has made waves in the combat sports world once again, this time by signing an expansive multifight deal with the esteemed Professional Fighters League (PFL). The announcement of this groundbreaking partnership has sent shockwaves through the industry, as Ngannou's unparalleled skills and star power continue to captivate fans and experts alike.

Ngannou Joins Forces with PFL

In a statement, PFL CEO Peter Murray expressed his excitement, declaring, "The PFL is thrilled to announce its groundbreaking strategic partnership with Francis Ngannou, widely regarded as the greatest heavyweight fighter in the world." The PFL plans to feature Ngannou as the centerpiece of their star-studded PPV Super Fight Division, solidifying his status as an undeniable force in the realm of combat sports.

However, Ngannou's role within the PFL goes beyond his in-ring performances. The Cameroonian-born fighter will also serve on the PFL's esteemed Global Athlete Advisory Board, contributing his expertise and perspective to shape the future of the organization.

Additionally, Ngannou will hold the esteemed position of Chairman and equity owner in PFL Africa, a testament to his significant impact and influence within the African MMA scene.

Ngannou's Patience Pays Off

Ngannou's signing with the PFL comes after an extended hiatus from the octagon.

Since successfully defending his heavyweight title against Ciryl Gane in January 2022, the renowned fighter has remained on the sidelines, nursing a knee injury. Despite this setback, Ngannou's perseverance and understanding of his own worth have proven instrumental in securing this groundbreaking deal.

Marquel Martin, Ngannou's former manager and current advisory figure who oversees a brand management company, praised the fighter for his remarkable journey. "You have to give a ton of credit to Francis," Martin stated. "Most fighters couldn't go through what he went through this past year.

He understands his value and has been extremely patient to get to this point. Now, not only is he the best heavyweight in the world, but he has a deal that is unmatched and will set him up for life." Ngannou's steadfast dedication to his craft, combined with his meteoric rise to the top of the heavyweight division, has solidified his status as one of the most iconic figures in combat sports today.

With his partnership with the PFL, Ngannou's legacy continues to grow, as he cements his place among the greats and paves the way for future generations of fighters.
