UFC 218: Francis Ngannou Promises He'll Finish Stipe Miocic

UFC 218: Francis Ngannou Promises He'll Finish Stipe Miocic

Alistair Overeem has now suffered some 11 KO/TKO defeats over the course of his long, storied MMA career, but none was more terrifying than the one he suffered at the heavy hands of Francis Ngannou in Detroit on Saturday night. With six wins and six finishes in the UFC, the heavyweight has put himself in position to challenge for the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

Overeem lay on the mat for an extended period with his toes curled as Ngannou did a victory lap around the Octagon. The referee called for them to "work".

In Round 1, Overeem ran at Francis with a left hook then went in for a clinch. Ngannou countered with a left uppercut that knocked Overeem out.

Overeem was out before he hit the canvas. Overeem was left stiff with his toes curled. The time of stoppage was just 1:42.

The 31-year-old Ngannou was homeless five years ago on the streets of Paris, France.

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. "I took this because the victor should get a title shot and I think I got it".

"I'm ready for that", he added.
