Heavyweight Contender Francis Ngannou Demands Dana White He Deserves Another Title Shot After Big Win At UFC On ESPN 3
Heavyweight knockout artist Francis Ngannou proved last night (Sat, June 29, 2019) that he’s still a big threat to the division when he knockout Junior dos Santos at 1:10 of the first round from inside the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
As soon the fight begins Francis Ngannou started landing a brutal leg kicks. Dos Santos becomes clumsy while throwing some punches. Ngannou took advantage of the situation and flung a fist into dos Santos’s back of the ear that dropped him to the canvas. Ngannou hurled few more punches on downed Santos before referee Herb Dean stepped in to waved off the action.
With an impressive win, Ngannou extends his winning streak to three and makes a case for himself to take on the winner of Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic at UFC 241 in August.
Funny thing after scoring a big KO over dos Santos at UFC On ESPN 3 Francis Ngannou yelled at UFC head Honcho Dana White stating he deserves a winner of Cormier vs. Miocic.

”Yeah, we’ll talk,” White replied from cageside. “These guys still have to fight. Still got to have Cormier and Stipe fight. We’ll see what happens after that. Who wins. What if they get hurt? Or whatever happens. And we’ll go from there.”
Cormier will put his heavyweight strap on the line when he clashes against Stipe Miocic at UFC 241 in August. We’re almost two months away from the big showdown, and until then anything terrible could happen. One could get injure or get sick.
”I hope the UFC gonna realize that I deserve the title shot right now,” Ngannou said after victory. “I deserve the winner of DC and Stipe.”
