Francis Ngannou ended the hype Jairzinho Rozenstruik in just twenty seconds at UFC 249 on Sunday.
The organization’s scariest puncher turned off the lights with a massive left hand that heaped Rozenstruik against the cage.
Ngannou entered this match after finishing his previous three fights in a total of 142 seconds. It’s now four arrivals in just 162 seconds.

The No. 2 ranked heavyweight competitor rushed at the start, threw a flurry of punches and a connected one.
He only needed one.
Rozenstruik, who actually called Ngannou, suffered the first loss of his mixed martial arts career in an amazing way.
He was 4-0 at the UFC before falling to Ngannou’s left hand.
The event, which was first scheduled for April 19 in Brooklyn and then moved to Indian lands in California, before being postponed, lived up to the hype.
