Cain Velasquez Offers A Hilarious Reply To Francis Ngannou’s Punching Power Comparison: “Weak Ass Ford Escort S*cks!”
After a long break, Cain Velasquez (14-2 MMA, 12-2 UFC) finally returns to Octagon this Saturday night. He will meet one of the greatest African-born mixed martial artists Francis Ngannou in the main event of UFC On ESPN 1.
Francis Ngannou (12-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) was the man with the strongest punch in the UFC until Derrick Lewis broke his record. “The Predator” is a master of a left uppercut, which he showed in the fights against Luis Henrique at UFC On Fox 17 and Alistair Overeem at UFC 218.
Before going berserk on “The Predator” for his terrible UFC 226 performance, Dana White praised Ngannou’s superb punch power at UFC 220 press conference, which was held at the end of 2017. The UFC president was very creative. (h/t BJPenn)
“Francis is a guy that has the world record for the most powerful punch. His punch is the equivalent of 96 horsepower, which is equal to getting hit by a Ford Escort as fast as it can (go), and it’s more powerful than a 12-pound sledgehammer being swung from overhead.”

Remember when Dana White compared Francis Ngannou's punching power to being hit by a Ford Escort? @cainmma wasn't impressed…

”Ford Escorts suck,” Velasquez said. “They’re weak. Weak ass Ford Escort. Is that the best [White] could come up with? He said ‘Ford Escort, that’s it. That’s the one.’”
When “Cardio Cain” was asked which car he would use to describe his own raw power, Velasquez seemed unsure, but answered it would be something better than Ford Escort.
”I dunno,” he said. “It’d be better than that. Anything would be better than that. They don’t even make Ford Escorts any more, do they? It should offend Francis, not me. I wasn’t called a Ford Escort.”
Do you agree with Cain’s comments? What do you think, will Cain Velasquez defeat Francis Ngannou?
