• UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou Reveals How The Rock Motivates Him

UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou will defend his Title against Interim Champion Ciryl Gane in the main event of tonight’s UFC 270 pay-per-view.

During a recent interview with Trevor Noah, Ngannou talked about being friends with WWF Legend The Rock, and how The Great One motivates him.

Here’s what The Predator said:

“I always look up to somebody like ‘The Rock’ Dwayne Johnson and recently, he noticed me, and now we even chat. I text, and ‘The Rock’ texts back, and sometimes, he left me a voicemail.

And then, when I wake up someday, just listen to it – ‘The Rock’ voice message. You know, I’ll go out there that day. I work double of what I supposed to work.

I am just motivated. I am like, ‘Damn! ‘The Rock’ just left me a message. This is it.’ You know, the enthusiasm, the motivation of that just message, you know.

And then I realize how great is it to be in the position that you have that power to, like, maybe just talk to somebody and change his day or his life. And I want to be the same thing for others.

Basically, knowing where I came from, that’s what we need. We just need hope.”
