FRANCIS NGANNOU Hitting Mitts With Henri Hooft
Hard-hitting UFC heavyweight “The Predator” Francis Ngannou working on his Jiu-Jitsu. The man, originally from Cameroon via Paris France. Takes on veteran Alistair Overeem Saturday, December 2nd. In what could very well be his ticket to a shot at Stipe Miocic and the heavyweight title.
With a win over Overeem, Francis Ngannou becomes the obvious choice for number one contender, with Overeem having lost in his last attempt at UFC 203. And the former champion Fabricio Werdum then having lost to The Reem last July at UFC 213. NGannou has seen a meteoric rise to the top going 5 – 0 in the UFC, with all the fights being won via stoppage.
Can he now make the next giant step into title contention? What a story it would be for the man who at one stage was homeless on the streets of Paris France. It would very much be the ultimate rags to riches story for the former laborer who would spend his days toiling in the hot African sun.
