A week ago, Francis ‘The Predator’ Ngannou broke the world record for punching power. Presently he’s conveying those staggering punches against a portion of the best in the business.
UFC 218 was Ngannou’s opportunity to demonstrate his value and he did only that after a deafening left snare in the first round. The season of stoppage was only 1:42.

The Cameroonian-French wrecking ball has already made a name for himself as the most terrifying fighter in the division, but this brutal KO on Alistair Overeem has well and truly made him a challenger for the title.
Ngannou doesn’t even have 15 fights under his belt and he can do this? Wow.
HOLY LEFT HOOK! 😱

Little Caesars Arena in Detroit witnessed something special last night. Ngannou now boasts an impressive 11-1 professional record, including six victories under the UFC banner.
He was fresh off a one-round demolition job over former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski and now Overeem, who is classed as one of the best in the division, is another victim to his devastating punching power.
Ngannou on why he told Overeem he'd put him to sleep: He talked a little bit. I wanted to correct him.
So, yeah, don't talk trash to Francis Ngannou.

Oh my God. Francis NGannou just delivered an uppercut from hell and took Alistair Overeem to the upside-down. NGannou has arrived folks. He's getting the next shot at Stipe Miocic. Wow. Overeem is still out cold. Goodnight sweetheart. #UFC218
