As a prominent figure within the UFC, Francis Ngannou has garnered tremendous attention and buzz with every appearance. The heavyweight champion has proven this again recently, his latest photo quickly going viral on social networks. It must be said that the Cameroonian was still displayed in very prestigious company!
Being a fierce competitor and being very ambitious, Francis Ngannou is clearly not friends with everyone in the UFC sphere. We can mention in particular his relatively tense relationship with Jon Jones, the two fighters regularly humiliating themselves via the media. On the other hand, the Predator has very different relationships with Israel Adesanya and Kamaru Usman.
Not playing in the same weight categories (heavyweight for Ngannou, light-middleweight for Usman and light-heavyweight for Adesanya), the three men have in common that they are the only champions from the African continent and have therefore formed a mini -community within the championship. Very close to each other, they really like to appear together on social networks. Ngannou also repeated this during their meeting in Las Vegas, recalling in passing the nickname of this trio: “The Three Kings”.

We had already been able catch a glimpse of the three superstars in the evening following UFC 276 a few days ago, after Style Bender won their fight there against opponent Jared Cannonier. A hell of a bunch of champions, to say the least! Fans also share this opinion, showing themselves rave about them in the comments under these two photos. Many are also those who have issued them as standard bearers throughout Africa.
God bless you all. Greater heights. Thanks for making us proud.

Once again, we can simply regret that Francis Ngannou, Izzy Adesanya and Kamaru Usman do not evolve in the same weight category. A clash between two of the “African Brothers” could result in a fight of anthology, even if they have too much mutual respect to want to bump into each other.
