Ngannou was on a ten fight win streak before he faced the UFC heavyweight champion, Stipe Miocic. He had obliterated his previous opponents with T/KO's and submissions. 'The Predator' has one of the most devastating knockouts in the UFC against Alistair Overeem.

With a resume like that, Ngannou was next in line to be the heavyweight champion. However, during his title fight against Miocic, Ngannou got overconfident, and it exposed many holes in his game.

Many people thought Ngannou was done. However, he made an incredible comeback in his next fight against Curtis Blaydes, followed by his wins over UFC legend Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos, and Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

'The Predator' has put together a 10-2 record in the UFC.
