Francis Ngannou needed just 20 seconds to rob Jairzinho Rozenstruik of his consciousness and decimate his previously undefeated record in yet another terrifying display of punching power.
The mammoth heavyweight scored his fourth straight first round victory by absolutely destroying his opponent with two sledgehammer left hands.
Rozenstruik had come into the bout with a professional record of 10-0 and with his four UFC outings ending in knockout victories, but his momentum came to a crushing end at the hands of the Predator.
Ngannou’s last four fights have now lasted less than three minutes combined, as he adds Rozenstruik to his perfect run of early finishes against Curtis Blaydes, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.
The Cameroon native made it clear with his fists and his words that picking a fight with him is usually a very, very bad idea.
‘When I heard he called me out, I knew he didn’t know what he’s doing,’ said Ngannou.
‘He has a lot of potential, but I think he has to take a step back and get ready for a fight against someone like me.
Stephens, who missed weight by 4.5lbs for what should have been a featherweight bout, started well, but was left in a pool of his own blood by the impressive Kattar.
A huge elbow put Stephens down and another on the mat opened up a massive cut and the fight was stopped.
