Ngannou vs. Wilder: An Upcoming MMA Face-Off?

Former UFC champ and current tenth-ranked WBC contender Francis Ngannou might step into the MMA cage against former world boxing champ Deontay Wilder. Donn Denis, head of the American PFL promotion and recent acquirer of Bellator, expressed interest in hosting this clash in a 2024 tournament, envisioning it under MMA rules.

Wilder himself expressed the desire to bridge boxing and MMA, sharing ambitions of joining the UFC family, a direct competitor to PFL in the U.S. Ngannou's recent move from the UFC to the PFL adds another layer of anticipation as he gears up for a winter debut.
