Video! Watch Francis Ngannou nearly dump Uriah Hall on his head in sparring

Francis Ngannou might already be the scariest human being on the planet. If he isn’t, he’ll have his chance to become that at UFC 220 on Jan. 20 when he takes on UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

In preparation for his highly-anticipated showdown with Miocic, Ngannou is in the gym working hard. Unfortunately for UFC middleweight contender Uriah Hall, that hard work turned into a lesson in size and physical dominance.

During a brief sparring session caught on tape (shown above courtesy of Fancy Combat), Ngannou and “Prime Time” were going tit-for-tat on the feet. Once “Predator” got a hold of Hall and playfully picked him up in the air we really got a sense of how overpowering the French heavyweight truly is.

Hall isn’t a small middleweight by any stretch of the imagination, yet Ngannou picked him up with the same ease as knocking out Alistair Overeem at UFC 218. If Hall is any indication as to what Ngannou can do to a man smaller than him, Miocic may want to pack on some extra muscle for their upcoming title fight.
