Former UFC champion, Francis Ngannou, has lost his 15-month-old son Kobe to the cold hands of death.

Ngannou confirmed the tragic news in an emotional social media post on Tuesday morning, April 30, 2024.

“Too soon to leave but yet he’s gone. My little boy, my mate, my partner Kobe was full of life and joy. Now, he’s laying without life. I shouted his name over and over but he’s not responding.

“I was my best self next to him and now I have no clue of who I am. Life is so unfair to hit us where it hurts the most.

“How do you deal with such a thing? How can you live with it? Please help me if you have an idea because I really don’t know what to do and how to deal with this,” he wrote.

The cause of Kobe’s death is yet to be made public.

Ngannou was billed to make his PFL debut against reigning champion, Renan Ferreira this summer, but that is now uncertain following the tragic news.
