Francis Ngannou Says He Lost Out On $1 Million Crypto Deal Because Of UFC Sponsorship Rules

Francis Ngannou is again speaking out against the UFC regarding the treatment of fighters and fighter pay.

On Wednesday, UFC middleweight Luke Rockhold bashed Dana White and the UFC over poor fighter pay and benefits.

“The company is f*cking growing, and they’re implementing other little stupid-ass bonuses – $5,000 here, $5,000 there. $50,000, man? We’ve been stuck on this motherf*cker for 20 f*cking years. I mean, back when GSP was fighting Jake (Shields), I mean, what was it? $100,000? F*cking it was growing.”

“These guys don’t know what they’re doing, and they’re letting Dana just run the show and suppress the sport. They need to grow. This whole f*cking thing needs to grow together. Our lives are on the f*cking line. Healthcare needs to be taken care of. Our f*cking health needs to be taken care of. Mine has not been taken care of. Do you know what I mean?

Ngannou, who is currently in negotiations with the UFC for a new contract, agreed with Rockhold’s sentiment and aired his grievances with the company. According to Ngannou, he lost out on a million-dollar crypto deal due to the UFC’s exclusive partnership with Crypto.com.
