This act has greatly impressed the MMA fighter.
The country of Saudi Arabia is eagerly anticipating the 2023 Riyadh Season, a yearly celebration featuring a variety of activities ranging from sports competitions to cultural performances. Additionally, Cristiano Ronaldo has been bestowed with a significant position and duty for the occasion.

The chairman of Saudi Arabia’s General Entertainment Authority (GEA), Turki Alalshikh, has appointed Cristiano Ronaldo as an ambassador. Alalshikh is leading the organization of the upcoming Riyadh Season, set to begin on October 28th. In anticipation of the launch, Ronaldo has gifted his friend Francis Ngannou with a unique designer item.
Ronaldo sent a $117,000 watch designed by the popular jeweler and wristwatch designer brand Jacob and Co. Ngannou loved the gift as he took to Instagram to share his feelings and appreciation, as he wrote, “Thank you @jacobandco & my brother @cristiano for the amazing gift ahead of fight week! #FuryNgannou”.
Francis Ngannou shared a video on Instagram of himself visiting Jacob and Co. In the video, he receives a box with the name Cristiano Ronaldo (CR7) engraved on it. He looks ecstatic as he tries on the watch and admires it.
The actions of Cristiano Ronaldo are not typical of him, according to the analyst who criticizes his performance as “embarrassing” while playing for Al Nassr despite his heroic efforts for Portugal.
