Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou suffered serious heartbreak after the death of his son Kobe.

Kobe passed away on April 27, 2023, and now fans want to know what happened.

How Did Francis Ngannou Son Die?

Francis Ngannou, the former UFC heavyweight title holder turned professional boxer, expressed his sorrow on Instagram following the tragic passing of his 15-month-old son, Kobe.

Fans, noticing his typically positive social media presence, were concerned about how he would handle such a heartbreaking loss.

Ngannou quickly updated his supporters on Instagram, sharing the heartbreaking news of his son’s passing without specifying the circumstances.

In a poignant post, accompanied by a photo and his heartfelt words, Ngannou expressed his disbelief and grief:

‘It’s too soon to say goodbye, but he’s gone. My little boy, my companion, Kobe, was full of life and joy. Now, he’s gone. I called out his name repeatedly, but there was no response. I was at my best when I was with him, and now I feel lost. Life can be so cruel, striking where it hurts the most. How does one cope with such a loss? How can one continue living? Please, if you have any advice, help me, because I’m at a loss.’

How old was Kobe when he passed away?

Kobe was born on January 13, 2023, so he was 15 months old when he passed away.

The MMA community showed a lot of support for Ngannou, with big stars like Conor McGregor and Cris Cyborg sending their well-wishes. People from different backgrounds, like media, fighters, and fans, filled the comments section with prayers.

McGregor said, ‘I’m sorry for your loss, Francis. My thoughts are with you and your family.’ Cyborg also prayed online, asking for comfort for Francis and his family.

Ngannou’s coach, Eric Nicksick, also supported him during this tough time. It was announced that Ngannou would return to MMA with his next fight in PFL.

His last UFC fight was in 2022, where he won against Ciryl Gane and kept his title. Before that, he knocked out Stipe Miocic in a famous fight.

After some disagreements, he left UFC. Even though he moved to boxing, he’s still known for his strength and dominance. He even knocked down Tyson Fury in a boxing match.”
