Francis Ngannou lifts Alistair Overeem off his feet with truly terrifying knockout

UFC 218 draws reported 17,587 attendance for $2 million gate

The heavyweight Frenchman took on number one heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem in the co-main event of UFC 218...and put his lights out!

UFC 218 was Ngannou's chance to prove his worth and he did just that after a thunderous left hook in the first round. "The Reem" was a former Dream and Strikeforce champion, not to mention having captured gold in K-1.

Overeem had dropped a title challenge to champ Stipe Miocic previous year, but was back on track, having won two straight. Props to @francis_ngannou, I got hit with a uppercut from he**, one of his specialities which we new were very risky.

This fight was essentially seen as a final eliminator for the UFC heavyweight title, so Ngannou is expected to get the next crack at champion Stipe Miocic. Ngannou, meanwhile, came in on a formidable five fight win streak in the UFC. And in doing so, he made a huge statement.

Shafiq left the UAE for Cairo following his detention, Emirates News Agency (ENA), official news agency of UAE, reported earlier. With airport security high, Shafik landed in a private plane in Cairo airport on Saturday evening, the airport sources said.

It took Ngannou just 102 seconds to flatten Overeem, a single hook-cum-uppercut leaving the Dutch striker unconscious on the canvas. He'd miss, and the pair would clinch against the fence.

The referee broke them up due to inaction.

Overeem lay on the mat for an extended period with his toes curled as Ngannou did a victory lap around the Octagon.

The Cameroonian-French wrecking ball has already made a name for himself as the most terrifying fighter in the division, but this brutal KO on Alistair Overeem has well and truly made him a challenger for the title.
