The fight between Francis Ngannu and Jairzinho Rozenstruic on Saturday night was guaranteed to end in a knockout as the two toughest boxers faced off in the UFC. But when he kicked Ngannou out of the fight to win the heavyweight clash over the VFC at UFC 249 Heavyweight Memorial Arena, Jacksonville, Florida, he made a terrible hitting attack.
Rozenstruik (10-1) threw some early kicks, but Ngannou (15-3) missed a trade and made a flurry of massive shots that ended the fight 20 seconds after the game started. Nganu missed left and right before another massive left hook to Roganstrueck’s jaw. Rozenstruik crashed into the cage and knocked down the fence as Ngannou continued to attack even after taking a hit until the referee forced him to stop the attack.
Nagannou said after his victory, “I mean, when I heard it, I knew I didn’t know what I was doing.” “He has a lot of potential, I think he needs to take a step back. He was not ready to fight someone like me.”
Ngannou expressed his disappointment at not fighting for the heavyweight championship as there is a third battle pending between division champion Stipe Miocic and former champion Daniel Cormier. Ngannou said he doesn’t know where he fits into the division, but UFC President Dana White reported earlier this week that the winner of this fight would be in line to fight the winner of the Miocic-Cormier fight every time. That trilogy is fight
Ngannout then said, “I don’t know what happens to the UFC title shot. To be honest, I’ve made my peace. It’s not that I don’t care, but I don’t want to feel like someone who controls me.” “With or without a title shot, I’m still a fighter and I still have what I have and I can make a statement. I enjoyed it there, it wasn’t something I was looking for. I was doing it. When I pursue a knockout, it isn’t.” . It doesn’t work, so I’m no longer chasing it. When they called me, they said, “This man doesn’t know what he’s doing.” He just got here and had some knockouts, but I didn’t see anything impressive, but I don’t care if people call me. “
Nganau has now won four consecutive games in the first round by knockout.
