I don’t really care about what it would be, I just think it would be a fight,” Ngannou said.

“Against Tyson Fury, it could be in a phone booth or in a rooftop, that fight will happen. Obviously, he won’t come to MMA, that’s not something that could happen. He would get killed.”

“Basically in the Heavyweight division, when you see two heavyweight people get into the octagon or in the ring, people that weigh about 270 pounds each … I mean, everybody could knock everybody out, that’s a fact.”

The next step is for Francis Ngannou to speak with UFC, along with his manager, Marquel Martin. They will have to see if it is possible to book something with Tyson Fury while still being under contract.

“UFC and I, we have to really sit down and talk real business,” Ngannou said in this new video.

“But, this time with a real consideration, because they have to take me seriously.”

I feel very happy and at peace with my choices,” he concluded. “I don’t want anything to dictate my behavior or my choices, unless it’s my feelings. I am the undisputed heavyweight champion.”
