Francis Ngannou took the leap of faith, fought for himself and left the UFC with an objective to improve his life and career from every angle. The whole world knows that it was a successful bet as Ngannou achieved massive success, fame, fortune and recognition from his recent fight with Tyson Fury.

It only seems to be getting better, as Ngannou will make his PFL debut next. As an obvious response, Ngannou is truly grateful for the bold steps taken and can’t wait to extend his success with the PFL.

Francis Ngannou on career decisions

In a recent YouTube video, Francis Ngannou shared his thoughts on making new career decisions and explained how he navigated through the many offers he received.

“I had a lot of controversial opinions about my career decisions because most of those things was about my career this year,” Ngannou said, as quoted by “Then negotiations with different organizations that were interested.

A lot of them were just trying to navigate the narrative and potentially get some promotion. We have a lot of different people – some two faces. It’s part of the business and that’s something that I learned this year – how this business can be nasty.

You have people who pretend to be something that they are not. But it’s a good part of the learning process. Becoming a fighter and stepping into that position is something you are not educated about. Most fighters never get educated, and that’s why for the most part, fighters keep getting screwed.

I’m lucky I got into the position where I had to learn that, and then comes the PFL with a great offer, a great contract and a great opportunity that I couldn’t turn down”. Francis Ngannou will most likely show up for his PFL debut between February and March. Once he’s done with that, he may most likely enter the boxing realm again.
