Francis Ngannou has some news

What a tease this guy, Big Fran is. Here he is posting this video to his socials last week promising us that on Tuesday he’s going to tells us (what we hope is) his final decision on free agency. We’re not sure what he’s going to say — Will it be a boxing announcement? Will it be MMA? — but that sure won’t stop us from wildly and irresponsibly speculating.

Plus, Jailton Almeida tapped the Bigi Boy, Matt Brown had a record night and Ian Garry continues to be a problem.
