Francis Ngannou Refuses To Sit Next To Miocic, Doesn’t Want To Hit Him — Watch

Tensions are high ahead of this weekend’s UFC 220 main event heavyweight title fight between champion Stipe Miocic and challenger Francis Ngannou.

So high in fact, that while making the pre-fight media rounds, Francis Ngannou refused to sit next to his opponent while on a national televised show.

Instead of sitting in his assigned seat next to Stipe Miocic, Ngannou asked the show host and producer to move his seat, because he said he doesn’t trust his hands.
