Francis Ngannou def. Curtis Blaydes at UFC Fight Night 141: Best photos

Francis Ngannou is kicking off the year with a positive personal accomplishment.

The UFC heavyweight contender Ngannou (12-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC), in partnership with his Francis Ngannou Foundation, has opened what he called the “first full MMA and combat sport gym” in his native Cameroon.

Ngannou shared photos of the gym, which is located in Batié, on social media (via Instagram):

Ngannou’s story of growing up in Cameroon before moving to France and eventually becoming a top-level heavyweight has been well documented during his rise to UFC stardom.

“The Predator” opens his gym just weeks ahead of his return to the octagon. Ngannou meets former UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez (14-2 MMA, 12-2 UFC) in the UFC on ESPN 1 headliner on Feb. 17. The event takes place at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Ariz.
