By admin | | 0 Comments |


UFC heavyweight Francis NGannou's legendary striking power is his most trusted weapon in MMA fights. Therefore, it might come as a surprise to many fight fans that the Cameroon native started his MMA career with a shoulder lock submission win back in France.In his recent appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, Francis Ngannou shared an account of the early days of his career as a mixed martial artist and explained how his MMA debut came about."Fernand (Lopez) told me 'oh, there's a fight in the town. You can fight there.' Since I am doing this (MMA) out of curiosity, (I thought) let's get a full experience out of my curiosity. I went there. It was a tournament. I'm like 'okay, let's get this.' So... I won my first fight (via) submission! I don't know... there's not a name for that (submission). I just dragged the guy's hand and I'm like 'okay, I'm breaking this hand or you tap."Francis Ngannou reflected upon the lack of understanding of grappling in those days and told Joe Rogan that he was virtually unaware of the moves he was making in the fight. Ngannou's submission win was the result of a popular Jiu-jitsu maneuver shoulder lock, as can be seen in the episode of The Joe Rogan Experience.All but one of Francis Ngannou's wins inside the UFC Octagon have come by way of submission. Ngannou defeated Anthony Hamilton via submission due to a Kimura in his third UFC fight in 2016.

And if you look at what Stipe has accomplished. It's impossible not to call him the greatest heavyweight of all time. So to see him and Francis square off again. And if... imagine if he can beat Francis again, he will look like an absolute killer," said White. "Then you would get Stipe and Jon Jones, or you would get Jon Jones versus Francis. I think he's ready as soon as he sees what happens with the heavyweight championship. I think he would come in right now and fight for it, but you can't jump over Francis.
