Francis Ngannou, in an interview recently, has said that he does not believe that JDS is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Francis Ngannou said the following :
“First of all, I don’t believe that jiu-jitsu black belt. I don’t believe that Dos Santos jiu-jitsu black belt. I don’t know where he’s from, but I don’t believe that. And I don’t mind that at all. But you never know what some fighter is going to come out with. I always keep thinking maybe he’ll try some wrestling or a takedown, but it’s not his comfort zone. I don’t know. He might try everything. But the most important is I’m prepared for every little thing.”
We can say that Ngannou’s word’s carry some weight, as we have seen Dos Santos attempt just one submission in his career and it was an ill-fated guillotine which did not work and his then opponent, Cain Velasquez slammed his head into the mat.
Ngnanou continued :
I think I’m the best boxer in the heavyweight division, and I think I’m going to prove it on the 29th,” he said. “I think he’s a very good boxer, but I’ll have to show that I’m better than him.”
