UFC Star Francis Ngannou Shares Rare Footage Of His First KO Win And It's Brutal As Hell
UFC star Francis Ngannou has shared a throwback clip to when he delivered a vicious first-round knockout in his third MMA fight.
The 33-year-old heavyweight has won all four of his previous UFC fights in the first round and is continuing to build on his reputation as one of the hardest-hitting fighters in combat sports.
Ngannou has now taken to social media to show off the "Africa Power early on" in his MMA career.
The 'Predator' clashed with Bilal Tahtahi at an MMA event hosted in Levallois, France, in 2014.
And the hard-hitting Ngannou threw two left-handed shots at his opponent before connecting with a devastating right to Tahtahi's face.
Tahtahi was sent crashing to the canvas and the referee waved off the fight with just over a minute left in the round.
Fans were stunned by Ngannou's explosive knockout punch and shared their thoughts on his ferocious power on social media.
"Besides the overeem [sic] uppercut technique wise I think that's the best punch I've seen him throw unreal power tho scary dude," one fan tweeted.
While another posted: "This shows Francis can use technique when he needs, and utilize the tornado style when he sees it appropriate."
A third said: "Keep working with Mike Tyson, and destroy Jon Jones."
And a fourth added: "Even then you were a beast."
UFC star Daniel Cormier also spotted the footage on Ngannou's Instagram and praised his fellow heavyweight for his 'clean technique.'
The 41-year-old former heavyweight champ wrote: "Technique looking clean there [sic] big boy!"
Ngannou fought earlier this month at UFC 249 and produced a sensational 20-second KO victory over Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
The 'Predator' has since locked horns with Jon Jones on social media amid speculation over a mega-clash with the UFC legend at heavyweight.
