Francis Ngannou is the UFC Heavyweight Champion of the world and is also one of the strongest fighters in the entire MMA world, as he has shown off his insane power on various occasions. Francis Ngannou also recently threw punches at an A-list actor.
The UFC Heavyweight Champion has recently announced that he will be giving out $300,000 in bitcoin after sealing a partnership deal with Cash App.
Ngannou will also receive half of his UFC 270 main event purse in bitcoin. Francis Ngannou is a huge believer in cryptocurrency, especially bitcoin. He will be competing against former teammate Ciryl Gane this weekend at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
In the lead-up to UFC 270 said that Stipe Miocic was his most difficult opponent and not Ciryl Gane. However, at the press conference, a reporter misquoted Ngannou to Gane and said that Ngannou is expected to have a “pretty easy” fight against Ciryl Gane.
The Cameroonian confirmed that Miocic was his toughest opponent but did not mean Gane was going to be an easy fight.
“Excuse me, sir. Where did you read that when I said Ciryl is a pretty easy fight? I mean I’m very confused… Did I ever say Ciryl is an easy fight? I didn’t say that… Toughest, meaning tougher than the others. Toughest, meaning others are tough but someone is the toughest. That’s not an easy fight, my friend. If you ever fight in your life, you’ll know that. Please be very accurate when you ask questions.”
The YouTuber turned professional boxer, Jake Paul is set to square off against the former UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley on August 28 in a boxing match. Currently the odds are in favor of Jake Paul even if Tyron Woodley is definitely the biggest opponent for Jake Paul so far. Jake Paul might be faking an injury for his upcoming boxing match against Tyron Woodley.
