Francis Ngannou decided against his team's advice and fought injured at UFC 270.
UFC Heavyweight Champion Ngannou tore his MCL and damaged his ACL just weeks before his title defense against Ciryl Gane in January, but was determined to compete that night. He won the fight unanimously.
But why risk it? Ngannou (17-3 MMA, 12-2 UFC) said he doesn't want to lose his bargaining power with the UFC amid his contract dispute.

"I couldn't stand this for that long," Ngannou said on Episode 2 of VLOG. "My only concern was that this is going to go on again for months and then I lose control of the conversation and everything. Like, no – that doesn’t happen.”
After doctors initially said Ngannou could irreparably damage his knee with a fight, his head coach Eric Nicksick tried to talk him out of the fight.
"Let me just play devil's advocate on this one because I'm talking about it — only we love you," Nicksick said. "That's it. The bottom line is, what do you gain by fighting injuries? What's there to win? If you knock this guy out and we win, what's next?
"But what do you have to lose if it gets worse or you get hurt or lose this fight? What are the pros and cons? And I'm not telling you that one is more than the other, but I think we have to decide that as a team or as a family, and then at the end of the day you have to make the decision. I know, we all know these motherfuckers don't give a fuck about you bro. So why are we doing them a favor?”
Ngannou, who underwent surgery to repair his knee after the fight, is targeting a return in March and has been linked with a fight with former light heavyweight king Jon Jones for his next title defense. He was recently spotted doing kicking drills during a training session as he prepared for his return to the octagon.
