UFC on ESPN 3 free fight video: Watch Francis Ngannou end Alistair Overeem’s night with brutal KO

Before Francis Ngannou steps into the Octagon agaisnt former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos this Saturday (June 29, 2019), let’s take a look back at one of “The Predator’s” most dominant wins.

Back in 2017, Francis found himself staring down fellow heavy-hitting big man Alistair Overeem at UFC 218 in what was one of his biggest tests to that up to that point. Both men were content to keep the fight on the feet, as expected.

And it didn’t take long for them to get swinging, as both men were looking for the early finish. Two minutes in, however, Francis clipped “The Reem” with a thunderous left hook that dropped the big man like a sack of potatoes in what was one of the best knockouts of that year.

Now, Ngannou will look to earn his third straight win agaisnt fellow heavy-hitter, Junior dos Santos, in hoping of earning another shot at winning the 265-pound strap.
