UFC commentator Joe Rogan is holding out hope that Francis Ngannou will return to the promotion.
‘The Predator’ famously left the UFC final month, after failing to return to phrases on a brand new contract. In consequence, Ngannou was rapidly stripped of his heavyweight title as he focused a transfer to boxing. For his or her half, the UFC later booked Jon Jones vs. Ciryl Gane for the vacant championship in March.
As of now, the previous champion is focusing on a transfer to boxing, and a conflict with both Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury subsequent. Whereas ‘AJ’ didn’t reply, Eddie Hearn not too long ago acknowledged that he reached out to Ngannou relating to the combat. For his half, Fury confirmed curiosity in a mixed-rules bout with the previous UFC champion.
No matter what Francis Ngannou does subsequent, Joe Rogan is hoping to see him again within the UFC at some point. On his podcast in a dialog alongside Paul Felder, the commentator mentioned his hope that the previous champion would return to the promotion.
The primary purpose why is that Rogan badly desires to see Ngannou lastly face Jon Jones. Regardless of ‘Bones’ and ‘The Predator’ being in talks for almost all of final yr, the combat failed to return to fruition. Rogan has hope that Ngannou will ultimately return to make it occur.
“The proper world is, [Francis Ngannou] goes over, has some large cash, heavyweight boxing combat, Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane have a combat, Jon wins. [Or] Ciryl wins, whoever wins is the UFC champ, after which Francis comes again,” Joe Rogan said in a dialogue alongside former UFC light-weight Paul Felder on his podcast.
He continued, “He can completely come again. Francis if you happen to’re listening, sir, please don’t signal an unique contract.”
