Francis Ngannou showed the world why he’s called ‘The Predator’ tonight against Stipe Miocic at UFC 260. He knocked out Miocic in the first minute of the second round to become the new UFC Heavyweight Champion. UFC Fighters and top stars from around the world reacted to this, including several WWE Superstars.

Francis Ngannou’s performance last night blew former NXT Champion Karrion Kross away. Kross noted that everyone knew Ngannou would win the World title someday and pointed out that his loss to Stipe Miocic at UFC 220 only fueled the fire for an emphatic return.

Hollywood megastar and former WWE Champion Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson also chimed in with his thoughts on the incredible victory for Ngannou. He heaped praise on Ngannou but also showed his love and respect for Stipe Miocic.

Titus O’Neil, one of the two hosts of WrestleMania 37, also reacted to ‘The Predator‘s’ historic victory. He not only congratulated Ngannou but also gave props to the former champ, Miocic.

‘The Predator’ had this victory a long time coming. He set the tone with those back-to-back KO victories and sealed the deal today with ‘one punch.’

Former UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping had predicted the fight would end in round one. Although it didn’t end in round one, it was an early knockout either way.

It’s time we all can agree that the Era of The Predator has just begun! And if the talk of the town is to be believed, then we could very well see Ngannou defend against Jon Jones. What are your thoughts on Francis Ngannou’s historic win? Will he face Jon Jones next? Let us know in the comments below!
