Francis Ngannou shocked the world one more time. This time he needed only 26 seconds to finish former heavyweight champion and one of the greatest heavyweights of all times: Cain Velasquez.
Some comments before the fight were saying that “..this will be the real test for Francis”, and that “…Cain will push it into five rounds and drag Francis in deep water”, “… Cain is better version of Stipe…”
But they all keep forgetting, Ngannou only needs one shot. One shot and it is all over.
In 26 seconds.

It will be interesting who will Francis fight next, currently he is on number 3 and above him are Derrick Lewis and Stipe Miocic but with this victory he should definitely move up.
Is it going to be fight for the belt? This is more likely than rematch with Stipe. Cormier is keep avoiding Stipe fight so it could be really possible that he tries to revenge his friend and fight with Ngannou for the belt.
