Francis Ngannou Produces Incredible 20 Second Knockout At UFC 249

Francis Ngannou Produces Incredible 20 Second Knockout At UFC 249

It took Francis Ngannou just 20 seconds to produce yet another stunning knockout at UFC 249.

The Cameroonian caught Jairzinho Rozenstruik flush straight from the off in Jacksonville, Florida and secured a 15th quickfire victory inside the Octagon.

Rozenstruik had called Ngannou out for this fight but was left pondering his decision after being knocked out cold and forced to be helped out by medical staff.

The Surinamese fighter suffered his first UFC defeat in devastating fashion, while Ngannou has now won all of his last four fights via knockout inside the opening round.

Daniel Cormier's reaction at the commentary table gave a perfect depiction of how every fan around the world reacted in sheer astonishment as Ngannou put his opponent away in rapid time.

Former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, who has given him some pointers in the past, seriously impressed by Ngannou's performance.

The No.2 ranked heavyweight has been on a tremendous run since suffering back-to-back defeats at the hands of champion Stipe Miocic and Derrick Lewis.

After being unsuccessful in his first bout with Miocic, Ngannou is now desperate to have another shot at the title - though he's been frustrated at having to wait for the opportunity given the mooted trilogy bout with Cormier.

"Our division has been frustrating and held up for a very long time," Ngannou said at the UFC virtual media day.

"It's frustrating and there's a lot of things that I think they still have to put together and put the division back online. It's a little bit weird - it's been almost a year since they fought for the title.

"When is the next time for a title fight? No-one knows. When is that fight with DC and Stipe? Nobody knows.
