Francis “The Predator” Ngannou came back to form, making quick work of Curtis “Razor” Blaydes in explosive fashion in the first round

Some pundits believed Ngannou had lost all of his confidence following a systematic dismantling at the hands of the then Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic.

Following coming up short in the title effort he put on a lackluster performance against Derrick Lewis. The highly touted phenom did not fire off his power and hesitated until the final bell.

By steamrolling Blaydes he has put the Heavyweight division on notice yet again and is still possess the confidence to throw power punches.
