Ngannou attacked straight away with a series of punches which sent Rozenstruik to the canvas.

After inspection from the referee, the Cameroonian-French fighter was declared the winner to give Rozenstruik his first loss in his UFC career.

Ngannou has now defeated Curtis Blaydes, Junior dos Santos, Cain Velasquez, and now Rozenstruik in a combined 2:42 seconds and the first fighter in UFC history to win four straight fights by Knockouts/Technical Knockouts in the first 90 seconds.

“I knew that he didn’t know what he’s doing. He’s not ready,” Ngannou told UFC boss Dana White in his post-match interview.

Ngannou was born and raised in the village of Batié, Cameroon. He grew up in poverty and had little formal education before taking up boxing at the age of 22.

He migrated to Paris when he was 26 and it was in the European city that he learnt MMA. He made his UFC debut in December 2015 at the age of 29.
