UFC Heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou is known by 2 contrasting natures. Outside the cage, he is calm and soft-spoken. If one interacts with him, they will never assume that they are talking to one of the most destructive Heavyweight fighters on the planet.
The Predator’ has to bide his time and wait for the Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic trilogy to play out. This is because as per the UFC rankings, he is next in line to challenge for the strap. In this regard, he has succeeded and found a new hobby in being in front of the camera for advertising.
The 2nd ranked UFC Heavyweight stars alongside a young girl in an endearing and hilarious ad-film. Here the fighter is seen at a Johnny Legend Car Dealership. Clad in a red t-shirt, he picks up the phone and says, “Thank you for calling Johnny Legends.”
After listening to the girl say her mom loves their new car, Ngannou replies, “I am happy to hear that.”
At this point, the girl details what car her father would want, and Ngannou in typical sales fashion lauds the customer. He says, “Excellent choice, we have it in selection. It is the best time to buy a car.”
As the commercial concludes, fans see ‘The Predator’ proclaim that they are always nice at Johnny Legend.
Given his endearing nature as well as what now will serve as proven quality, ‘The Predator’ can certainly expect to receive multiple offers for endorsements. This is because he is likable, avoids trash-talking his opponents, and lets his fists do the talking in the cage where it really matters.
The Predator’ has a ton of momentum on his side. He has finished his last 4 fights in a combined 162 seconds. The fighters across the ring in his lightning-quick streak include former UFC Heavyweight Champions like Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos as well as formidable fighters like Curtis Blaydes and Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Ngannou certainly has the world at his feet and his foray into advertising has added yet another avenue for him to succeed in. What did you make of ‘The Predator’s time as a salesperson?
