Alistair Overeem Thinks Jon Jones Could Beat Francis Ngannou If anyone knows about taking a punch from Francis Ngannou, it's Alistair Overeem. After all, Overeem was lifted off of his feet with one of the hardest uppercuts in mixed martial arts history. So, maybe he isn't the best person to ask when it comes to what it takes to defeat Francis. However, Overeem is a veteran of the sport. So, his analysis that Jon Jones could beat Francis Ngannou is still very valid. Recently, Jon and Francis have traded subtle shots back and forth on social media. Jones has virtually torn through multiple generations of light heavyweights, over the measure of a decade. Even though his more recent fights have been closer than some may be anticipated, he has still never been positively defeated in his career. So naturally, fans are ready for Jones to make an appearance in the UFC's heavyweight division. And with him and Ngannou beefing, it's possible that it will happen. Jones believes that his chin and abilities are enough to take down Ngannou. As well as Jones' belief that he can win the fight, so does heavyweight veteran Alistair Overeem. Overeem Speaks on Jones vs Ngannou Overeem spoke with ESPN. During the conversation, he revealed that he believes Jon Jones could beat Francis Ngannou. https:\/\/twitter.com\/espnmma\/status\/1262440904692051969 \u201cTo be honest, with all due respect, I do not think Jon is gonna do that fight,\u201d Overeem said. \u201c not much to win, a lot to lose. Because if he wins, he\u2019s not (the) heavyweight champion. The fight after that would be for the title, I guess.\u201d \u201cIt\u2019s a complex situation, but I definitely think Jon can beat him,\u201d continued Alistair. \u201cIt would be mega-fight. So it\u2019s definitely something I am very much looking forward to \u2026. I really enjoy these guys smack talking back and forth. It\u2019s really amusing, and hopefully, it will produce some great, great mega fights.\u201d Making the Matchup "The Reem" believes that Jon Jones has a chance against the most feared heavyweight on the roster.
