Francis Ngannou replies UFC after controversial error from them, discrediting him as a Cameroonian


Francis Ngannou and UFC are still at loggerheads despite him leaving the division more than six months ago.

Francis Ngannou left UFC earlier this year after failing to agree on a contract extension with UFC boss Dana White

Yesterday August 12th, UFC announced Light Heavyweight fighter Tafon Nchukwi aka Tafon Da Don as the first Cameroonian fighter in UFC history during his entrance for the AJ Dobson fight.

Da Don hails from Bamenda, a city in the North West Region of Cameroon.


This sparked alot of controversy since Francis Ngannou is a Cameroonian and was flying the Cameroonian flag during his time at UFC. The PFL fighter took to his Twitter account to post a picture of himself with the Cameroon flag and the UFC Heavyweight belt.


Many Twitter users are accusing UFC boss Dana White of trying to erase Francis Ngannou’s legacy with the incident, since the two parted ways in bad terms.


It’s also more controversial considering the fact that before Francis Ngannou, there was Cameroonian fighter in UFC called Thierry Sokoudjou who competed in the division from 2007 to 2008.


Sokoudjou fought three times at UFC before leaving for some independent organizations.


Francis Ngannou made another tweet reminding UFC of the Cameroonians who have been part of the UFC
