Francis Ngannou is poised to reveal his future plans following the release of a teaser trailer.
Since negotiations for a new contract with the UFC fell through, Ngannou has been without a promotion and relinquished his title as the heavyweight champion.
Various organizations, including ONE Championship, have been associated with Ngannou as potential destinations. CEO Chatri Sityodtong had even held discussions with Ngannou, although no agreement was reached.
According to reports, Ngannou's hesitation stemmed from ongoing talks with another undisclosed promotion, as revealed by Ariel Helwani. Moreover, there were rumors linking Ngannou to a potential foray into the world of boxing, with notable names like Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, and Tyson Fury being mentioned.
The answers to these lingering inquiries may finally be unveiled, as the MMA sensation recently shared a tantalizing teaser video, set to be fully revealed on May 16th, 2023.

Ngannou included a “shush” emoji as a caption and apparent response to those who’ve accused him of wasting a golden opportunity. After leaving the UFC, he said he left the promotion because it wouldn’t entertain the possibility of granting health insurance and a advocate for fighters in negotiations.
