Francis Ngannou is reporting that he’s moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, in an effort to take his career to the “next level”.
The rising heavyweight, who was born in Cameroon, but has been living and training in France, recently tweeted out the news.
It will be interesting to see where Ngannou ends up, in terms of a home gym, and how the move plays out. The 30 year-old is coming off a first round, stoppage win over Andrei Arlovski in January, and has gone 5-0 in the UFC to date.
Ngannou is currently ranked #5 in the heavyweight division, and could be one win away from locking up a title shot.
