Francis Ngannou talks about taking down Ciryl Gane during training

Mind games developed by Francis Ngannou when he revealed the story behind how he took down his opponent Ciryl Ganes in training.

Drama and tension lead to UFC 270 unbelievable. The two champions take turns. One, with evil intentions inside the octagon while the other entered with a cold head wanting to outdo his opponent. Francis Ngannou spoke to the media ahead of his huge title fight against former teammate Ciryl Gane. During the press conference, Predator revealed he knocked the Frenchman down with a high-footed kick.

This incident took place at Francis’ old gym so he believes there’s a reason why the footage of him knocking down his opponent hasn’t been shown to the public. “There were a lot of reasons why that footage wasn’t released,” Francis said. Despite this accident, Francis was not at all confident going into battle.

“Well, let me say this. That knockout is not a voluntary knockout. It is an accident. I’m not going to knock him down, I’m not going there to kick him out. Personally, I wouldn’t boast about it, I’d go around and knock my partner down,” Francis told the media.

Francis and Ciryl were the Predator’s training partners for a short time. However, the two spent about 8 gym sessions together before Ngannou decided to change training centers. There’s no scene of Francis’ knock-out with Ciryl in the gym. However, Veronica Macedo, a UFC bantamweight fighter who has trained in the same gym as two heavyweights, admitted that Francis in fact knocked Ciryl down by accident.

In a podcast hosted by a former UFC commentator and MMA analyst, Dan Hardy, Veronica Macedo talks about Francis taking down Ciryl. “I think he was scared of Ngannou’s power. He felt his power and Ngannou defeated Ciryl. This video is not shown but I will say it is true,” Veronica said. Watch the video below:

“Anytime, Ciryl will tag him multiple times. Francis would get mad and swing his arms at him. If it catches him a bit, it will knock you down. That is not the purpose of the fighting situation so it does not apply. “
