UFC Star Francis Ngannou Shows His Frightening Strength By Manhandling NBA Legend Shaquille O’Neal

UFC star Francis Ngannou has shown off his frightening strength by becoming the first man to pick up NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal.

Ngannou is one of the UFC's most feared heavyweights and is known for having one of the strongest strikes in the promotion.

'The Predator' was keen to show off his power when he met basketball legend 'Shaq' last year and did what many thought would be impossible.

'Shaq' commends the 33-year-old on his physique and points out his lack of body fat.

The Cameroonian fighter the goes on to pick up O'Neal, who weighs over 21 stone, with relative ease.

He joked on Instagram: "Shaq you're not so heavy as I thought. That's probably why you could fly on the court."

Four time NBA champion O'Neal was stunned after he'd been lifted, admitting: "Yeah, that's the first time I've ever been lifted up."
