Francis Ngannou knocked out Jairzinho Rozenstruik in Jacksonville at UFC 249. His fight couldn’t go on for a long time because he was winning too much.
Francis Ngannou is a fighter that punches hard. He knocked out the best fighter in December 2017. The video of the punch is not good for people who are scared or weak, so don’t show it to them.
Ngannou signed with the UFC after six fights. He started to fight more and soon became one of the best fighters in the UFC. In 2016, he fought Curtis Blades and won. In 2017, Ngannou was ranked number one in the UFC heavyweight rankings.
But the French man failed to win the championship. He lost a title fight with Stipe Miocic in January 2018 by the decision of judges. He then lost again, also by decision of judges, to Derrick Lewis in October 2018. But he came back in November 2018 and beat Curtis Blades quickly with a knockout punch (in just 44 seconds) and then won his next two fights against Kane Velasquez, Junior dos Santos and Jairzinho Rosenstrike by knockout.
Francis lost in a fight to Stipe Miocic and then again to Derrick Lewis. Lewis is a puncher, so Francis was expected to get knocked out. However, the fight was really boring. The fighters were afraid of each other and did not want to get close. It was embarrassing when it ended without any decision made about who won.
Ngannou’s fights were about knocking out his opponents. He beat Curtis Blades, Kane Velasquez, and Junior Dos Santos. So he got a fight with Jairzinho Rozenstruik, whom not many people know in 2018 because he is an MMA connoisseur.
Ngannou is not a perfect fighter, but a perfect champion with a perfect story. An African who was born into poverty, worked in a sandpit since childhood, almost died making his way out of Africa to Europe, lived on the streets and made it to the very top in the finals. A giant with a bassy laugh, pumped muscles and a monstrous punch you can’t even last two rounds against is the final boss from any computer game.
The Surinamese fighter made his debut in the UFC last year. He won all four times, and they were all by knockout. He won his last two fights against Andrei Orlovsky and Overim quickly, it was only a few seconds before the end of the fifth rounds. Jairzinho is good at punching, but not so great at stamina. The fight with Ngannou lasted 20 seconds because he didn’t have any energy left even if he was good at punching earlier.
Ngannou knocked Rozenstruik out. It was hard because when he threw punches, it looked like Wilder. He got confused and went into a knockout after Ngannou hit him with a left jab. Ngannou then threw five more punches before the end of the fight.
