Francis Ngannou got back to winning ways in style tonight at UFC fight Night 141 in China, TKO’ing Curtis Blaydes in just 25 seconds.
Leg kick for Ngannou. Huge right hand for Ngannou and Blaydes woozily drops to his knees and faceplants, but gets back up again. He’s trying to clinch up but Ngannou is unleashing more right hooks and Blaydes goes back down in defensive mode.
Ngannou continues to hammer away and the referee has seen enough, he calls off the fight just 25 seconds into the first round to hand Ngannou a shockingly swift TKO.
These two have fought before, but this win was much more emphatic for Ngannou, who silences the critics after a couple of shaky performances and now marks himself out again as a top-flight contender in the heavyweight ranks.
