Francis Ngannou's sudden rise in the sport of MMA has been mind-blowing. Born and raised in Batie, Cameroon, Ngannou had to leave his parents and live with his aunt at the age of 10. While working in a sand quarry he was approached by several gangs to join them. However, he declined all those routes and started to pursue boxing at the age of 22.
After a rough couple of years, at the age of 26, he decided to move to Paris, France to pursue the sport professionally. Things didn’t go to plan as he was jailed for two months upon reaching Europe for illegally crossing the border -
“2013: 7 years ago we were freed by Spanish homeland security after spending 2 months in jail for illegally entering Europe by sea. This, after attempting for one year from Morocco. I had nothing by then but a dream and a faith of pursuing it.”
After reaching France, he was homeless for months. Ngannou was then introduced to Fernand Lopez and the MMA factory by a friend. Ngannou got fully invested in MMA and was training and sleeping at the gym. Fernand Lopez even lent some of his MMA equipment to Ngannou. In 2013, he made his professional MMA debut at 100% Fight.
In 2015, after compiling a 5-1 record at the promotion he was signed by the UFC. So far, he has compiled an 11-2 in the UFC. The two losses came at the hands of Derrick Lewis and Stipe Miocic. However, he defeated Stipe Miocic, in their highly anticipated rematch for the UFC heavyweight championship at UFC 260.
Ngannou's first title defense is heavily rumored to be against Derrick Lewis.
What is Francis Ngannou's net worth in 2022?
According to Glusea.com Francis Ngannou’s net worth is estimated to be $4 million. Coming from a humble background Ngannou has never openly mentioned his financial dreams in any interview. However, the heavyweight did weigh in on the negotiation complications between UFC and Jon Jones and gave a hint of his aspirations -
“As far as [negotiation], yeah, he’s (Jon Jones) asking for money, he said ‘show me the money but I think it makes sense. I think for a mega-fight everyone would like to have mega pay, [same] as mine. I want that fight. I would like to have good pay and every other fighter out there would like that. There’s nothing irrational in this. Everything is normal. Everybody is expecting that we are doing this in order to one day have a big payday. A big fight day. When it comes to that moment, you are like ‘I wish I had what I wanted.’ So I believe in it and I see ‘show the money for me, proof to me he really wants it or if you show the money, he’s going to fight.” -
