Francis Ngannou grieves as he loses 18-month-old son

In a note on Monday evening, the mixed martial artist wondered why life is meaningless and unfair and always takes that which people don’t have.

He wrote on Twitter; “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!? Why is life so unfair and merciless? Why does life always take what we don’t have? I’m f***ing tired.”

Furthermore, Ngannou asked others who have lost loved ones in the past how they dealt with the pain because he is clueless on what to do.

“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.

Also, the boxer’s coach, Eric Nicksick said: “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.”
