Francis Ngannou (born September 5, 1986 and often incorrectly referred to as Francis N’gannou) is a Cameroonian-French mixed martial arts fighter currently competing in the heavyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He is the number ranked heavyweight contender in the world and his highlights make him one of the scariest knockout artists the UFC has ever seen.
“When I started, I had nothing,” Ngannou said to Yahoo. “Nothing. I needed everything. But when you start [to earn money], you starting collecting things: I want this, I want this, I want that. The purpose is not collecting things, though. The purpose is to do something great. Finish the dream you started.”

“I want to help my family, first, of course, but then I want to give opportunity to children in my country like me who have a dream to become a doctor or something. If I reach my dream, it will give me the opportunity to help those in my country who have their own dreams and nothing else to fulfill them.”
