Israel Adesanya backs Francis Ngannou's exit from UFC

Francis Ngannou made the right decision by leaving the organization, but will return to the roster of the strongest league in the world, former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is sure.

“Francis made the right choice,” Adesanya was quoted as saying by MMAJunkie. “He asked for things that should be mandatory – he didn’t have the ridiculous demands of a crazy diva. He didn’t even come close to behaving like a diva and made reasonable demands. Dana White said, ‘We don’t do business like that.’ But that has to change and it will change. It’s just that Francis was the first to knock on that door.”

“I think Francis will come back. He is the greatest heavyweight, not only in the UFC, but in general in history. He left on his own terms with the championship belt without losing it. I feel that he will do what he wants to do in boxing and come back. Here’s what I think about it”

A month ago, UFC President Dana White officially confirmed that Francis Ngannou had become a free agent and left the organization, and also announced a fight for the vacant heavyweight championship between Jon Jones and Cyril Gun, who will headline UFC 285 on March 4 at UFC 285. Las Vegas.

After that, the teams of boxers Derek Chisora, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua announced their interest in a duel with the Cameroonian heavyweight, and Deontay Wilder offered the former UFC champion two fights, one of them under the rules of mixed martial arts.
