Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou is making big money to fight Tyson Fury.

Earlier this year, Ngannou and the UFC parted ways after he refused to sign a contract with them to fight Jon Jones.

At the time, Ngannou revealed that he turned down around $8 million to fight Jones.

During the Fury-Nganou press conference, Fury revealed that Ngannou would be making $10 million for their boxing match, which is being backed by Saudis.

“Everyone said he was an idiot for walking away from the UFC and now all of a sudden he’s a genius, isn’t he? Guy’s about to make $10M…egg in their face, Francis is going to make that bag.”

After his boxing match vs Fury, Ngannou will fight in MMA on a PFL PPV card next year.

It appears that the Ngannou is doing well after leaving the UFC.
