Kobe, 15-month-old son of Francis Ngannou tragically passes away

Former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou is mourning the loss of his 15-month-old son Kobe today. A cause of death has not yet been released.

“What’s the purpose of life if what we’re fighting tooth and nail to get away from is what finally hit us the hardest!?” Ngannou posted on social media. “Why is life so unfair and merciless? “Why does life always take what we don’t have? I’m fucking tired”

A second post soon followed thereafter:

Ngannou’s coach Eric Nicksick also posted about the tragedy:

“It’s been a heavy few days, words can’t express the pain we all feel for the Ngannou family during this time. Please keep Francis and his family in your heart, and may this be a reminder of the fragility of life. Say “I love you,” more often, tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. ❤️”
