UFC Heavyweight Francis Ngannou will be moving from his current home of France to Las Vegas, Nevada. The Heavyweight contender recently tweeted, “I’m officially move to Las Vegas and get ready for the next level”
Cage Prophet has one thing to say to the UFC Heavyweight division: Be afraid, be very afraid. Since making his UFC debut, Ngannou has gone 5-0 all by finish. Ngannou has racked up 4 KO/TKO finishes as well as a first round submission. He quickly plowed through the competition climbing his way through the ranks, leading him to a first round knockout over the legendary former champ Andrei Arlovski.
You may ask, “Does moving to Las Vegas really give him an edge?” and the answer is yes, it absolutely does. The UFC has recently put the finishing touches on it’s state of the art campus. While in Las Vegas, Ngannou will be able to enjoy the benefits of the UFC’s world class fighter specific facilities. Benefits will include: medical monitoring, nutritionists, strength and conditioning, not to mention the best coaching staff and training partners in the world. If anything is going to take Ngannou to the next level it will be full time training in Las Vegas.
While we eagerly await to hear who Ngannou will be taking on next, you can bet that it will be a top five opponent. Ngannou has been vocal about his hopes for a Title shot and his latest emphatic win over Arlovski has him in the running. Cage prophet expects the UFC to give him at least one more top five opponent before giving him a shot at Stipe Miocic for the Belt. Still, stranger things have happened. His time to challenge the champ may be sooner than we think.
