Francis Ngannou’s Swift Departure After Brazilian Fighter’s 21-Second KO Marks Dramatic MMA Comeback

4 months ago By Jhon Woug

After making a splash in MMA and boxing, Francis Ngannou, the one-time UFC heavyweight champ, has been generating buzz. As he delves into his latest venture, boxing, some have pondered whether this KO specialist from Cameroon will come back to the octagon anytime soon. But Ngannou put any doubts to rest by declaring that he’ll be returning to MMA in 2024; now we know who his challenger will be upon coming out of retirement.

Amazingly, Renan Ferreira here will be the one to fight against Ngannou because he won the fight against Ryan Bader in a very quick manner. The mixed martial arts universe was in a daze when Ferreira’s 21-second stunner demonstrated why this divisional title was up for grabs all day.

For him, PFL fights against Bellator and Ferreira in Saudi Arabia were the arena for his close observation of Ferreira’s extraordinary performance, while he left immediately without waiting for any possible showdown after his opponent heckled him.

With ‘Fight of the Year’ status tagged on this year’s fight card, these two striking talents are expected to come through with their mind-blowing knockout ability. You can probably make a prediction for the fight, as fireworks are going to erupt when these two fighters get into the ring.

Ngannou regards the fight as another chance to manifest the monster-like quality, and once again, the fans will acknowledge him among the heavyweight division’s most fearsome. After his request for a heavyweight fight in Cage was declined and his decision to go on a boxing tour was made, all he could think about was proving that he was still the best in one place: the Octagon.

However, do not be blind to Ferreira! The low-gravity fighter from Brazil has been on an unprecedented rise in the PFL due to his extraordinary performances, and he is now a very real hindrance to Ngannou’s unquestionable position.

Contrarily, Ngannou is focusing his efforts on his boxing match with Anthony Joshua, but the fighter needs to understand the importance of his forthcoming fight against Ferreira. Conquering Ferreira would serve as added proof that Ngannou is back in MMA and would bring in more exciting opponents, but ones that would be off the radar, like Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic.

Ceiling MMA enthusiasts are keenly anticipating the promotion outcome of Ngannou, who, thanks to the upcoming fight, will finally answer the question, “When the fight is done, where do I go?”? You can just imagine the question that this match is raising: ‘Whether Ali will return a more powerful striker than he was before or if Ferreira will be the toughest opponent he will be facing yet’.

We will have to wait and see, moreover, but what seems incontestable now is that Francis Ngannou’s peremptory departure after Ferreira’s 21-second KO marks the beginning of an intriguing time in his hectic career.

It was a crushing loss for Ferreira, and then he challenged others to a fight. Surprisingly, there has been an unnecessary discussion that has involved fans and experts about Ngannou’s decision to not engage in combat for further challenges after the fight. Some depict it as a probing means that allows him to maintain an air of enigma while at the same time wielding the psychological upper hand.

Although others may think Ferreira’s kind action is an attempt to mock or insult him through his praise, in fact, it is part of his preparations that await him in his next duel with the aspirant.

There are teams that view him as the dream challenge they have been waiting for, and others that look at him as a nightmare, prompting fear. Regardless of the perception, Ngannou’s return will unquestionably capture viewers’ attention globally. The approaching meeting with Ferreira definitely looks like the ending of a long suspense story fought by two top heavyweights, and it can’t be missed by the fans.

At this steady pace, all input will be on Ngannou and the chance to conquer history with his mighty fights against the others and confirm himself as one of the best fighters ever in the sport.
