On more than one occasion, UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou has shown tremendous punching power.
In 2019, the Cameroonian visited the UFC Performance Institute where he set the world record for the hardest punch ever measured at 129,161 units.
It hits harder “than a high speed car” and with a new Jackass movie released on February 4th, only they could think it was a good idea to bring in Ngannou and hit a man – in the groin. .
The 35-year-old opened up about his role in the movie: “This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. Dude, I must have hit somebody in the nuts, I did it there. first time, [they’re like] “Listen man, we know you.
“People know you are the toughest puncher in the world. It wasn’t hard enough. I was like ‘Are you kidding me? Like, I’m nervous. I don’t know, I could hurt this guy, did he at least have kids or something?
Imagine that Nagnnou hits you in the groin and then tells him that it was not hard enough …
He’ll need all of his punching power on January 22 at UFC 270 as he looks to hand Cyril Gane his first professional loss and become the undisputed heavyweight champion.
The last time Ngannou was inside the Octagon was when he won the heavyweight title from Stipe Miocic last March. UFC boss Dana White wanted him to defend the title against Derek Lewis in Houston, TX last August, but the date has come too soon for Ngannou.
White then sanctioned an interim bout with hometown heroes Lewis and Gane, the latter coming out on top.
Now the pair will meet to see who really is the heavyweight king of the world.
The Predator have won all of their last five fights by knockout with four of them in the first round. His power is no joke.
It is also the last fight remaining on Ngannou’s UFC contract. If he wins, he will find himself in a strong position to negotiate with White, a man he has not always been on business with.
