Francis Ngannou Knocks Out Overeem And Wants Title Shot

The heavyweight clashed served as UFC 218's co-main event.

He wasted little time showing why he is so feared, stopping Overeem after just 1.42 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.

One powerful left hand from Francis Ngannou was all it took, and suddenly Alistair Overeem was unconscious on the mat.

As you can see for yourself in the video further down, it was an absolutely brutal finish to the fight, and this was also the first time we had seen Overeem be knocked out since he faced off inside the Octagon against Miocic at UFC 203 in September a year ago.

Georgia LB Natrez Patrick arrested for third time in three years
Patrick logged three tackles in Saturday's SEC Championship Game and is sixth on the team this season with 35 tackles. Stanley, a junior from Fairburn, Georgia, was arrested for DUI, misdemeanor possession of marijuana and speeding.

Francis Ngannou may have earned himself a championship fight. After charging across the cage to start the fight, Overeem tried for a takedown and then initiated a clinch, though it didn't take long for Ngannou to turn him and force him into the fence as a counter.

He was fresh off a one-round demolition job over former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski and now Overeem, who is classed as one of the best in the division, is another victim to his devastating punching power. At the UFC 218 post-fight press conference, UFC president Dana White confirmed that Miocic vs. Ngannou is in the promotion's immediate plans and added that he is hoping to get it done "as soon as possible." .
