Dana White on Francis Ngannou: 'The Guy is a Monster'

Dana White on Francis Ngannou: 'The Guy is a Monster'

As you can see for yourself in the video further down, it was an absolutely brutal finish to the fight, and this was also the first time we had seen Overeem be knocked out since he faced off inside the Octagon against Miocic at UFC 203 in September past year.

In the main event, Max Holloway defended his featherweight belt with a third round TKO of Jose Aldo, the same result when the pair met ut UFC 212. Ngannou has stated that not only does he want to become the UFC's first African champion, but also dreams of headlining the company's first fight card on the continent. One of the deadliest strikers in heavyweight history, he'd have the speed, power, and yes, fighting smarts of Ngannou to contend with.

President Dana White has high hopes for Francis Ngannou. After sprinting in with a left hook attempt that missed the mark to kick things off, "the Reem" immediately tied things up with a clinch against the fence.

The referee broke them up due to inaction. Ngannou countered with a left uppercut that knocked Overeem out. It sent Alistair Overeem sailing back, crashing to the canvas. Ngannou had made a statement: he was the clear number one contender in the UFC's heavyweight division.
