The two apparently met in a training session, wherein Garcia threw some of his devastating body shots at Ngannou.

Garcia clearly realized that he wasn’t causing much damage to one of the most dangerous men in the UFC’s Heavyweight division. Of course, “The Flash” already knew what he was up against. However, Garcia does not look away from challenging people from his own weight division.

Before sparring with Francis Ngannou, Ryan Garcia issued a challenge to Henry Cejudo

Soon after Henry Cejudo announced his retirement after beating Dominick Cruz, Garcia took to Twitter to call the former Olympian out.

Undoubtedly, Cejudo had his classic response ready.

Garcia currently holds the WBC Silver Lightweight title. At the mere age of 21, he boasts of an astonishing record of 20 professional victories and zero losses. The level of calmness he brings inside the ring unnerves his opponents. However, he quickly replaces the calm mindset with a devastating offensive maneuver to knock his opponents out.

Experts consider his fast movements quite out of the ordinary. And truly, his swift movements contribute a lot to his style of fighting. He is always on the lookout for even a hint of space that his opponents might provide him.

He capitalizes as soon as his opponents give him even a millisecond of space with extreme precision and speed. For example, his last fight with Francisco Fonseca ended with one swift jab right to the jaw.
