This has to do with his UFC career but, crucially, also his net worth.
Ngannou is set to walk home with $10 million from the fight and he’ll probably spend some of that cash to add another vehicle to his amazing collection.
Francis Ngannou and his G-Wagen
At 6-foot-4 and 300 pounds, Ngannou is a big guy, which is why he needs a big vehicle.
The G-Wagen fits the bill.
And not just any G-Wagen – it’s the AMG model.
What we’re looking at here is 2.5 ton of brute force.
Despite its weight, the Mercedes-AMG G-Class is able to sprint from standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 5.3 seconds thanks to the 563-horsepower, 5.5-liter Biturbo V8 that powers it.
With a list price of $179,000, this car isn’t for everyone.
Ferrari 488 GTB
Ngannou holds both Cameroonian and French citizenship but he resides in Las Vegas – the world capital when it comes to MMA stars.
Ngannou regularly drives his Ferrari 488 GTB in Sin City, and he sometimes drive a similar model around the track.
With a starting price of around $200,000, the Ferrari 488 isn’t cheap, but yet its value pales in comparison to other cars in his collection.
Rolls-Royce Ghost and Phantom
Ngannou owns both a Ghost and its big brother, the Phantom.
The Ghost is ‘slightly’ smaller, measuring 212 inches (5.3 meters), but, just like the Phantom, it’s powered by a V12 and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.7 seconds.
It has an MSRP of $400,000.

The Phantom is also powered by a V12, but it’s a different one.
The biggest available Rolls-Royce uses the iconic 6.75-liter V12, and it is still capable of mind-blowing acceleration figures despite having less power.
More importantly, the Phantom is one of the most expensive cars on the market.
Pricing starts at $493,000.
