The UFC boss, Dana White, talked to the media at the post-fight press conference of UFC Vegas 67 where he revealed that the promotion would be releasing their current Heavyweight Champion. White also laid stress on the fact that he had promised the most lucrative contract amount to Ngannou, which no other UFC Heavyweight had received.
