Francis Ngannou KOs Jairzinho Rozenstruik in just 20 seconds at UFC 249

Francis Ngannou showed why he is one of the most feared men in the world with another devastating knockout.

The Cameroon-born Frenchman needed just 20 seconds to KO previously unbeaten rival Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

And he immediately called for a second heavyweight title shot having lost his first attempt against Stipe Miocic in 2018.

Ngannou then lost to Derrick Lewis in a snooze-fest before stringing together four victories which saw him spend less than three minutes in the cage.

And he said: "When he called me out I knew he didn't know what he was doing, he was not ready for me.

"He has a lot of potential obviously but he needs to take a step back and get ready before he takes on someone like me.

"I have been working for hard for 15 weeks on exactly that set-up so it was great team-work.

"I have been expecting to fight for the title but I do not know where the division is right now. I will just see how it goes."

The UFC returned to action after an eight-week absence due to the coronavirus.

The fights in Florida were behind closed doors with fighters and staff having followed a strict safety protocol.

That didn't prevent Jacare Sousa from contracting Covid-19 however and his fight with Uriah Hall was pulled from the card.

In the co-main event, Henry Cejudo retained his bantamweight title with a second-round stoppage of Dominick Cruz.
