A display issue involving the Cameroonian fighter Tafon Nchukwi was brought to light by a post on the social media site Reddit. The fans were actually very unhappy since they weren’t sure if White had intended to target the UFC legend Francis Ngannou or if it had just been an oversight.

What was the error all about?

The post emphasized the light heavyweight starlet’s entrance into the octagon, which was captured in a picture. The phrase “only Cameroonian Fighter in UFC History” flashed on the screen while Nchukwi was moving down the aisle. Since he was not the first fighter from Cameroon, the information certainly appeared to be false. In fact, Francis Ngannou must have been overlooked at that point in time. The post also had a caption that stated, “Only Cameroonian fighter in history? Is this Ngannou shade or someone fu**ked up the banner?”

Since they had a lot to say, most of the supporters criticized the error. With their remarks, they aimed to emphasize the White-Ngannou connection. The fans, being angry, indeed took shots at White as evident from their reactions. The comments are as follows:
