We’re touching on a problem that has been going on for a long time and which is not to the advantage of the UFC: we have to give more to the fighters. It would have been better if they reviewed the form of the contract: the contract is unilateral and it doesn’t protect the fighters at all, even physically. It’s strange that we do such a violent sport without having good health insurance. “A revenge for Gane soon? “I don’t know, there is already an unsettled contractual situation with the UFC and then it’s not up to me to ask for a rematch because I’m the winner.” Ngannou had knee surgery and he will be back in 4 at 5 months. 20:51 Short break and we meet again at 9 p.m. for the start of the official evening The first fight will oppose Quebecois Charles Jourdain against Englishman Nathaniel Wood.
