Dana White Did Not Put Championship Belt On Francis Ngannou After UFC 270 Win

Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou defended his UFC championship at UFC 270 but UFC President Dana White was nowhere in sight after the match.

On Saturday night, Ngannou defeated Ciryl Gane via unanimous decision and UFC matchmaker Mick Maynard was the person who put the belt on him, not White.

It is worth noting that White had previously handed the belt to Deiveson Figueiredo right before the Ngannou-Gane fight.

Before tonight’s UFC 270, Ngannou, whose contract with the UFC expires later this year, had been vocal about wanting more money and having the option to box against Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder.
