French mixed martial arts fighter Francis Ngannou said that Nigerian UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is helping him prepare for his rematch with American heavyweight division champion Stipe Miocic and will be present in his corner during the fight.
“Yeah, so Kamaru Usman’s gonna be in my corner for this fight. So it’s good having him here, helping me out for the fight, by this time you need everything,” Ngannou said on his Fight Camp vlog. “Basically, he is gonna be in my corner and it’s good for him to train where I am and to bring his own asset into the game. This is a very decisive moment leading up to the fight so it is very important to engage with him. He’s gonna be in my corner basically helping me with my wrestling, which is great. So yeah, it’s good.”
