UFC's Latest Heavyweight Star Lands Uppercut from Hell at UFC 218

Steven Rondina@srondinaFeatured ColumnistDecember 3, 2017

Francis Ngannou is a terrifying man, and the latest example of that came at UFC 218.

Facing veteran kickboxer Alistair Overeem, the Predator delivered possibly the greatest highlight of his career by knocking his foe out with a terrifying scoop left hook that lifted Overeem off the ground. Check out the highlight above.

Now 6-0 in his UFC career (11-1 overall), Ngannou seems poised for a shot at UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.  While that's easily the biggest challenge of Ngannou's career to this point, it's hard to doubt him after so many savage finishes.
