Francis Ngannou unfurled quite an impressive performance recently when he defeated Junior Dos Santos in just 71 seconds at UFC Fight Night last June 30 in Minneapolis. The victory allowed the 32-year-old Cameroonian mixed martial artist to register his third victory - all lasting no longer than 2 minutes and 36 seconds. Looking ahead, it will be interesting who would be brave enough to face him.

Even with yet another quick win, Ngannou remains humble. He says that luck has a part in his previous performances although he was quick to add that it may be also because he has heavy hands. Of his fights, he said that the best win he has gotten so far in the UFC was against Alistair Overeem at UFC 218. He won back in 2017 with a KO punch with a time of 1:42 in the first round.

Joe Rogan could not help but praise Ngannou for his conquest of Dos Santos. In fact, he could not help but take note of how fast and legit the Cameroonian made short work of his opponent during the "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast.

“The scary thing is he just clipped him. He clipped him, rocked him, put him down, pounded on his head and Junior just couldn’t even move. He just laid there and [took] it and they stopped it quick. That was 100 percent legitimate,” said Rogan.

Looking ahead, there is no question that Ngannou's impressive run merits a shot at the title, the Bloody Elbow reported. His next opponent could very well be the winner between Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic, both of whom are set to face each other at UFC 241 on August 17.

In an e-mail interview facilitated by Weber Shandwick, Ngannou was asked on who he wanted to win in the Cormier vs. Miocic clash at UFC 241. He said he was not rooting for anyone and that he held high regard for both fighters. In short, the Cameroonian does not really care on who he fights as long as he gets the chance to fight for the title.

" I’m not rooting for someone. Someone’s going to win, I don’t know who. But if the question is to know who I would like to fight, both of them are very good for me. Daniel is a great fighter and is about to retire. It would be good if I fight him before his retirement. Stipe, we have an undone deal. So we have to finish that. Both are good for me," said Ngannou.
