Dana White was impressed with Francis Ngannou’s performance against Tyson Fury.
The UFC president had a number of conflicts with his former UFC heavyweight champion as the ‘Predator’ looked to leave the company.
And leave he did and ventured into the world of boxing against the WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury.
In the ‘Battle Of The Baddest’ Ngannou may have suffered defeat on the scorecards but his stock has risen significantly following his performance against ‘The Gypsy King’.
And White speaking to Donald Trump Jr on his Triggered Podcast said: “I didn’t see the fight, but the fact that he went ten rounds with Tyson Fury is crazy.
“Conor McGregor made it ten with Floyd Mayweather, Anthony Pettis beat Roy Jones Jr – I know Roy’s 60 years old or whatever, but I don’t know what the hell is going on, it’s crazy.
“I didn’t see the fight, but the fact that he went ten rounds is unbelievable.
When asked if Ngannou’s move to boxing had hurt the UFC, White replied: “I don’t care.
“Listen, these guys, at some point, everybody is going to move on.
“Everybody has to do what’s right for them and make money for their families, so whatever they’ve got to do, they’ve got to do.”
