Will Francis Ngannou come back to the UFC? UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya has made a bold prediction regarding the same. ‘The Predator’ left the world’s biggest MMA promotion after several failed negotiations with the UFC president, Dana White.

The UFC boss was not ready to accept all the conditions of the Cameroonian-French fighter. This ended up with him leaving the UFC. Ngannou’s decision disappointed MMA fans all around the globe, as they were eagerly waiting for a showdown between Jon Jones and ‘The Predator.’
