UFC 260 Miocic v Ngannou 2:  Weigh-Ins

Early Life and Career

Francis Ngannou was born in Batié, Cameroon where he lived in poverty with little formal education. At the age of 6, Francis went to live with his aunt due to his parent's divorce and by age 10 he started working in the stone quarry of Batié.

Taking inspiration from the negative reputation of his father Ngannou wanted to do something positive which led him to pick up boxing at the age of 22 but left it in a year due to an illness.

The turning point in Ngannou's life came when he reached Paris after being released from his 2-month imprisonment in Spain for illegally crossing the Moroccan-Spanish border. In Paris, Francis met Fernando Lopez who allowed him to train MMA and sleep at his gym for free.

Francis started his MMA career in November 2013 and had a record of 5-1 before signing with the UFC in 2015.
