Top of the UFC Phoenix billing has just seen the previous title contender Francis N & # 39; Gannou knock the former champ Cain Velasquez just moments into the opening round.
Velasquez tried to close the distance and even get a takedown, but N & # 39; Gannou had none. A well placed right hand landed on the button and Velasquez went down. On the way down, it looked as if Velasquez blew out his knee. This was the first match for nearly three years for Velasquez, so hopefully the recovery process will not be too long. Yikes times ten and a half. For Ngannou, this two-point victory totales 71 seconds. Now, Gannou showed once again how scary and powerful his battles are, and there are so many opportunities for his next match. There can just be a title shot that threatens him.
