UFC President Dana White has announced that reigning heavyweight champion Francis Ngannu is on the verge of losing promos.
In an interview with Oscar Willis from TheMacLife, White said he plans to say goodbye to Ngannu in The Predator after suffering two consecutive defeats in the UFC.
“SHE IS [Francis Ngannou] I lost there in two in a row, I think once we could have parted ways with him, but we didn’t. We stayed with him, now he is a world champion. “Dana White said.
Ngannu’s losses, as White intended, were against then-heavyweight champion Stipe Miochic at UFC 220 and Derrick Lewis at UFC 226.
The UFC has announced the interim championship fight between Derrick Lewis and Cyril Gain in the UFC 265 heavyweight division.
The fight will take place on August 7 in Houston, Texas.
Speaking of the fight, White also revealed his 265-pound division plans.
“I got two of the best heavyweight categories in the world. I have one [Derrick Lewis] Defeated Francis, he has already won Francis and the other [Ciryl Gane] undefeated. So these two will fight, we’ll see who wins and who wins will fight Francis. And then, that wins [fight] will probably fight Stipe [Miocic]. “

Max Kellerman calls Francis Ngannu the most dangerous athlete
Sports journalist Max Kellerman compared UFC champion Francis Ngannu to Mike Tyson and called him the most dangerous athlete.
“Once upon a time, Mike Tyson was called ‘The Worst Man on the Planet.’ [Francis] How is it that Ngannu is so big and he is a master of mixed martial arts? … “The most dangerous athlete I’ve ever lived.”
Kellerman also opted for the Wild, defeating former super-heavyweight champion John Jones.
“I would have liked Ngannou to lose [Jon] Jones. “
Ngannu had planned to fight the former 205-pound champion, but the fight didn’t pay off because of Jones ’rock talks with the UFC.
