At UFC 249, Francis Ngannou knocked out Jairzinho Rozenstruik. It was a fight that had to end early because of something Francis did.
Francis Ngannou is a man who fights. He has the hardest punches in the UFC. His most famous knockout was in a fight with Alistair Overeem. It’s not good to show videos of his uppercut to people who are weak or don’t like to see violence.
Ngannou signed the UFC. He was very good, and he won many fights. In 2016 he won against Curtis Blades, then in 2017 he defeated Andrei Overeem and Alistar Overeem. At the end of 2017, Ngannou was number one in the UFC heavyweight rankings.
The Frenchman lost twice. He was not able to hold the belt. But he is not giving up. The Frenchman has won three fights in a row, and all of them were by knockout in the first round.
Francis lost a fight against Stipe and then also lost to Derrick Lewis. That fight was supposed to be exciting, but it was not – they were afraid of each other. They did not want to get close. It was embarrassing for Francis.
Ngannou won three fights in a row and then he fought someone that few people knew about. He had already knocked out 3 people and this guy was the 4th.
Ngannou is not a perfect fighter, but a perfect champion with a perfect story. An African who was born into poverty, worked in a sandpit since childhood, almost died making his way out of Africa to Europe, lived on the streets and made it to the very top in the finals. A giant with a bassy laugh, pumped muscles and a monstrous punch you can’t even last two rounds against is the final boss from any computer game.
Last year, a Surinamese man joined the UFC. He has had four wins and all of them are by knockout. The last two were against Andrei Orlovsky and Overim. Jairzinho Rozenstruik knocked Dutchman Jairzinho out in 20 seconds just before the end of the fifth round.
Ngannou made Rozenstruik confused, and then he punched him (pretty hard). Jairzinho was already hurt. Ngannou continued punching him until he fell to the ground.
