The Winner And The New Heavyweight Champion Of The World Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou’s aim was to take the belt home and he did.

What a knockout!

The first round was somehow brutal, however, the second round was even more painful and difficult watch.

Stipe Miocic might have suspected after few punches from the first round that this time around Francis Ngannou came well prepared.

Francis Ngannou is very proud and happy after his UFC bout with Miocic, it meant a lot to him because he lost the belt to Stipe 3 years ago.

This fight was not only a revenge fight, it also goes to show that, when one is well prepared, focused and determined everything is possible at the right time
