A UFC legend recently shared his opinion on former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou’s future in MMA. The fighter mentioned above is UFC Hall of Famer and current PFL commentator Randy Couture.

Ngannou shocked the mixed martial arts community when he became the first reigning UFC champion to leave the promotion since B.J. Penn in 2004. He then signed a landmark free-agent contract with the PFL that also allows him to box.

During the grand arrivals for his upcoming boxing match against Joshua, ‘The Predator’ stated that he does not intend to leave the sport. ‘I will definitely still do some MMA fights, but I’m not leaving boxing. Remember, at the beginning, it was boxing. I wasn’t aware of MMA. And for more than a decade, it was all about boxing, dreaming about boxing.’

In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Couture discussed Ngannou’s comeback to mixed martial arts. He believes that, despite receiving enormous paychecks from boxing, Ngannou will return to mixed martial arts to meet his PFL obligations.

Ngannou is set to make his promotional debut against Renan Ferreira, but it’s unclear when he’ll return to MMA. Francis Ngannou is currently preparing for the second boxing match of his career against former two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua on Friday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The pair are slated to compete in a 10-round heavyweight match.
