“The Predator” will now call Sin City home.

In the post, Ngannou said he had officially moved to Vegas in order to “get ready for the next level.” He has not decided where he will train and has no fights currently booked yet, per his team.
Ngannou (10-1) has had a flawless run in the UFC so far, winning five straight all by finish. The Cameroon native most recently beat former champion Andrei Arlovski by TKO in just 92 seconds at UFC on FOX 23 in January.
Ngannou, 30, was born in Cameroon, but moved to Paris in his mid-20s in order to train to be a boxer. It was there that he found MMA, even though the sport is not legal in France. Ngannou made his pro debut in 2013.
