If anyone had any doubts as to whether Francis Ngannou was a legit, heavyweight contender prior to UFC 218, chances are, they don’t now.

Although Ngannou had taken out all five men he faced prior to Saturday’s card, many noted that the surging heavyweight had yet to face a top five ranked fighter. Well, last night, he took out the #1 contender Alistair Overeem, and did so in violent and quick fashion.

After his ridiculously, impressive win, Ngannou spoke to the UFC’s Megan Olivi, and reflected on the victory, why the fight with Overeem was so important, and how he thinks a bout with Stipe Miocic would play out. You can check it out below.
