When former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou left the combat promotion, he was in search of an enormous payday in boxing and Sean O’Malley knew it was a mistake.
A bout in opposition to Tyson Fury was mentioned and promoted by each males, however the match misplaced its luster when Ngannou now not held the UFC heavyweight title.
“Francis, and I’ve mentioned it since day one since he began speaking shit on the UFC on Twitter. It’s going to be the largest mistake of his life,” O’Malley mentioned on the TimboSugarShow.
“Tyson Fury isn’t excited by Francis Ngannou anymore. He was excited by Francis when he was the UFC champ. He was the baddest motherf**ker on this planet. Now he’s exterior the UFC. Now it’s not as intriguing,” continued O’Malley.
“Who’s Francis? Francis is finally going to be like he hasn’t fought in two years. That combat goes to be no as attention-grabbing.”
Conor McGregor cashed in by securing a boxing match in opposition to Floyd Mayweather Jr., however McGregor was the largest star the Octagon has ever seen. Retired UFC fighters touchdown bouts in opposition to Jake Paul, however Paul’s not seeking to combat heavyweight Ngannou, both of them.
“You do this since you need that payday. You need that boxing payday, and that was in his head. It was in his supervisor’s head. That’s what I’m assuming. I’m guessing clearly. I don’t f**king know,” O’Malley mentioned.
“I believe he’s pondering, I noticed Conor do it, however Conor did it with the UFC. He would do it by himself. The extra days go on the much less intrigue, the much less care we’ve got for Francis to go to boxing.”
