Francis Ngannou Comments on Disappointing Performance at UFC 226
By FCF Staff
Francis Ngannou has been widely criticized for how he performed in his UFC 226 bout Saturday with Derrick Lewis, and now the former title challenger has responded.
Ngannou was extremely tentative and passive in the fight, and only managed to land 11 strikes in the entire contest. Lewis won the fight via decision. The bout marked the first time Ngannou had fought since he was defeated by Stipe Miocic in January.
Recently the feared slugger posted the statement below on Instagram.
I am not proud of my last performance. I have carried my fear from the last fight to this one. I completely understand the frustration & anger that it has caused to my fans, coaches, teammates, family and friends and I am truly sorry for that. I won't let everyone down again. All I can do now is prove myself and make you proud again. #UFC226
