Following waiting for what felt like an eternity, Francis Ngannou last but not least has his upcoming heavyweight title shot secured: the Cameroonian slugger will rematch current champ Stipe Miocic for the belt on March 27th at UFC 260. And in spite of Miocic basically dragging Ngannou for the huge greater part of their initially bout again in 2018, the bookies nevertheless have “The Predator” a -150 favorite to Miocic’s +130.
These odds notify you just how a great deal stock is set into Ngannou’s fearsome punching electricity. All it can take is one superior shot and it is good night Miocic. And whilst Stipe is no slouch when it comes to knocking opponents out either, we have never ever essentially seen Ngannou damage by strikes in the UFC.
Adding to his sheen of toughness is this video from a teaching session at Xtreme Couture. He will get fellow UFC fighter Dan Ige to hit him a number of situations directly in the bread basket, and normally takes it all devoid of even a wince. Ige may perhaps only be a featherweight, but all those punches are legit, son.
That’s some enhancement above this movie from June of 2020 wherever “The Predator” took two to the physique from 125 pounder Aupuni Pagaoa prior to tapping.
Is Francis only obtaining scarier? We believe so. Will it translate into a heavyweight title get on March 27th? We’ll see.
