Ngannou claimed that it is about time UFC officials came up with a plan for the Cameroonian fighter and he also demanded to know his current position in the company, despite being the #2 ranked heavyweight fighter in the UFC.

They have to do something with me. OK, so what is that? I want the damn answer. I want to know what’s my position. I want to know what I’m doing here. I’m the No. 2 (heavyweight), and everyone is booked. I’m just here looking like, I don’t know, some guy desperate to get a fight.

What's the likeliest option for Francis Ngannou?

As of now, fight fans do not have an idea of what's next for Francis Ngannou, however, it is likely that the former UFC Heavyweight Title contender could once again be line for a shot at Stipe Miocic's belt.
