While he earns the lion’s share of his money from fighting in the octagon, Ngannou also has several endorsements. These include Gym King Fight Division, CBD Research Labs, Cryo Pain Relief, and The Fight Game.
Leaving the UFC will only increase the number of endorsements for Ngannou as different promotions have different rules for sponsorships on fight night. Therefore, this could also be another advantage of leaving the UFC for Francis Ngannou.
