Who is Francis Ngannou?

Gymshark athlete and future UFC Heavyweight Champion, Francis Ngannou is a Cameroonian mixed martial artist living and training in Las Vegas, Nevada, with a hunger to achieve champion status in the UFC Heavyweight Division.

Growing up in Batié, Cameroon - Francis had little formal education and lived in poverty, working his first job at just 10-years old in a sand quarry. Fast-forward to when Ngannou was 26, and he took action on his dream to become a professional boxer, beginning a new life in Paris, France.

With no money, no friends and no place to live - Francis was homeless.

Still carrying a huge passion for boxing, inspired by Mike Tyson, Francis managed to start training at a combat gym for free in August 2013 thanks to Didier Carmont.

Showcasing huge potential in combat sports, Francis was persuaded to train in MMA and entered his first fight in November 2013, as part of 100% Fight, a French MMA promotion.

Just over two years later, Francis Nagnnou made his debut on the Preliminary Card at UFC on Fox 17, winning by KO in the second round.

Ngannou moved from France to Las Vegas, Nevada, and now holds the main card ticket in his hands, fighting at the very top of the UFC Heavyweight division.

His humble beginnings and love for his hometown in Cameroon have curated a man destined to help others. Through the Francis Ngannou Foundation, he has created an MMA gym and facilities to help engage, train and care for people back home.
