Since leaving UFC a few days ago, Francis Ngannou is the hottest free agent on the market, and every major fighting organization is expected to do their best to add “The Predator” to their roster.

In a statement to MMA Junkie, Bare Knuckle FC president David Feldman, commented on the current situation.

“We’re very interested in signing Francis Ngannou and would very much like to have him compete in the stacked BKFC heavyweight division,” Feldman said. “We’re tabling an offer for his services, and hopefully fans will see him in the BKFC squared circle in 2023.”

However, even tought Ngannou has expressed interest in box heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, he never really mentioned bare-knuckle boxing.

Over the years, BKFC signed a bunch of high profile UFC fighters, including Mike Perry, Ben Rothwell, Paige VanZant, and Diego “The Nightmare” Sanchez.

The 36-year-old made his promotional debut in 2015 with a second-round knockout against Luis Henrique.

He then came to test himself against the best heavyweights on the roster, including Ciryl Gane, Stipe Miocic, Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem.

In March 2021, he won the heavyweight title after defeating Miocic at UFC 260. He then defended his strap once against Gane at UFC 270 in January 2022.
