Not only did Francis Ngannou close out his 2017 campaign with a pivotal win over Alistair Overeem, he scored one of the most vicious knockouts of the year.

The rising star faced Overeem at UFC 218 in November, and proceeded to floor the decorated heavyweight with a nasty, nasty, left uppercut. If you haven’t, somehow, seen the bout, or just want to again, you can check it out below.

Ngannou is preparing to face the champ Stipe Miocic at UFC 220, which will go down next Saturday in Boston.
