The anger of Eric Nicksick, head coach of Francis Ngannou, still very firm in these hours. After what was the announcement of UFC for the interim Heavyweight belt, the champion’s entire team was very upset. Sure, the hassles make sense. The Cameroonian will have to wait longer now to have his first defense of the belt, since, at UFC 265, I win Y Lewis they will collide first.
Talking to MMA Fighting, Nicksick indicated: «Francis and I had finished training in the morning, we trained at 10am, she went upstairs to shower in the gym, went down to the office and said she got an email from UFC about some things in contract negotiation. I helped him load his car, we ran some errands and stuff. Then I got a text message and that was the first time I heard from him.
“He said, ‘What, they’re doing an interim?’ So it was kind of a surprise to all of us, but at the end of the day, it’s a business. It is the business of UFC And I guess we’re here for a ride Honestly, I haven’t talked much to him about the situation. We talked a lot on Sunday about the situation and it had nothing to do with money, it had to do with the terms and then we worked out some of those things, “he said.
It was forceful
In addition, Eric He commented, “I said, ‘Look, my job is not to be in the negotiations, my job is to make sure you prepare for whoever comes across the table.’ Now you have to think, too, for us, we were told that he was going to be the winner of the Stipe fight and Francis was going to fight Jon Jones, and now I think Jon Jones is on our radar. Those negotiations came to a standstill and, I understand, the promotion must move towards what they see as best.
The next boy in line was Derrick LewisRightly so, and that’s who we plan to fight. Basically, we had a month off. So to be honest with you, I really don’t have a problem with what I win Y Lewis fight on August 7. I think that the stipulations of putting an interim knowing that we are ready to fight a month later, I think that is where the confusion with us lies, “he concluded. Eric Nicksick.
