The offer that would have made Ngannou the highest-paid heavyweight in UFC history was formally denied, according to president Dana White. Therefore, why “The Predator” departed the UFC is undoubtedly a concern for fans. Ngannou, meanwhile, revealed his reasons for leaving the business. The former UFC fighter recently admitted in an interview with Ariel Helwani for MMA hour that freedom, not financial gain, is what he wants from a deal.

Regarding the deal, he added, “The terms of the contract, everything that they put into it, hold you in captivity like you can do nothing right. It is a one-sided pact. Nevertheless, you remain empty-handed. While doing this and risking your health, you don’t even have health insurance.”
