The Professional Fighters League (PFL) is electrifying the sports universe, announcing that combat sports legend Francis  Ngannou is set to storm the PFL cage in a titanic showdown against the heavyweight hero emerging from the battle between Renan Ferreira and Ryan Bader.

Ngannou, a behemoth in the world of combat, took the sports world by storm when he inked a deal with PFL in May. Not just any fighter, Ngannou is breaking boundaries as the inaugural active combatant to snag a seat on PFL’s Global Advisory Board, not to mention becoming an equity owner and the Chairman for the much-awaited PFL Africa. Fresh from his nail-biting encounter with boxing titan Tyson Fury, Ngannou is now in Riyadh, gearing up for a colossal clash with heavyweight boxing titan Anthony Joshua.

Ngannou is making a grand comeback to MMA, ready to unleash his fury in the PFL SmartCage against the winner of the heavyweight clash of the titans between 2023 PFL Heavyweight Champion Renan “Problema” Ferreira and Bellator Heavyweight Champion Ryan “Darth” Bader. This superfight is the crown jewel of the PFL Champions vs. Bellator Champions event, set to explode this Saturday, February 24th, at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

PFL CEO Peter Murray couldn’t contain his excitement, proclaiming, “The PFL is thrilled to unveil Francis Ngannou’s explosive return to MMA in the PFL PPV Division against the heavyweight champion from the PFL vs Bellator showdown between Renan Ferreira and Ryan Bader.” Ngannou isn’t just a fighter; he’s a global icon, and the MMA world is on the edge of its seats, waiting to see who will face the fury of The Predator, Ferreira or Bader.

Ngannou will be ringside in Riyadh, witnessing history in the making. Meanwhile, he’s prepping for another blockbuster in the boxing ring, ready to duke it out with the legendary Anthony Joshua on March 8th, live on DAZN.
