Francis Ngannou is probably the hardest hitting fighter who has ever competed in the UFC. He also boasts the world record for the hardest ever punch recorded in the history of mankind at an unbelievable 129,000 units. Dana White even claimed that his punch is equal to being hit by a Ford Escort going at full speed. LET THAT SINK IN!
Francis Ngannou, of late, has been unhappy with the UFC as he hasn’t been matched with a opponent, since demolishing Jairzinho Rozenstruik of Suriname within 20 seconds, back in May, this year. The no.1 UFC heavyweight contender clearly has a reason to be unhappy, as it has been over five months since he fought ‘Bigi Boy’ Rozenstruik. Francis Ngannou expressed his frustration via Twitter.
“Hopefully I’m going to fight again one day” – A frustrated Francis
Earlier this day, Francis Ngannou, took to Twitter saying, “Hopefully I’m going to fight again one day”. It is high time UFC matches Francis with an opponent, as he has been patiently waiting for a rematch against Stipe Miocic for the heavyweight title. The UFC should make it happen soon, as Francis is the “top-ranked” heavyweight contender.
Francis already fought for the heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic at UFC 220, back in January, 2018. He eventually lost the match via unanimous decision. He went on to lose against Derrick Lewis via unanimous decision too, in what many consider as the most boring match ever in the history of UFC.
After that, Francis picked up steam defeating Curtis Blaydes, Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos and Jairzinho Rozenstruik – knocking out each and every one of them in devastating fashion to become the ‘top-ranked’ heavyweight contender again. Let’s hope Francis and Stipe soon face each other in the octagon for a rematch.
