UFC 249: Francis Ngannou Smashes Jairzinho In 20 Seconds, Tony Ferguson lands In Hospital [VIDEO]




Jairzinho Rozenstruik spent longer in recovery, awkwardly propped up against the Octagon fence after being terrifyingly knocked out by Francis Ngannou, than he did in the actual fight itself.
The heavyweight bout had been billed as a collision of hard-hitting giants, with Rozenstruik putting his unbeaten run on the line against Ngannou’s reputation as the most-devastating striker in UFC history.

So much so, that the fight only lasted 20 seconds — and that includes the amount of time Rozenstruik was knocked out on his feet by a thudding Ngannou left hand, before the Cameroon big man attacked his opponent with six follow-ups.

TONY FERGUSON meanwhile was rushed to hospital following his shock defeat to Justin Gaethje at UFC 249.



El Cucuy, who entered this fight on a 12-match winning streak was left a battered mess as he forfeited the chance to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Ferguson, who had not lost since 2012, had been scheduled to face the undefeated Russian for the lightweight title FIVE times.

And the American was the heavy favorite to win the interim belt against Gaethje after the coronavirus pandemic forced Khabib to pull out.
But Ferguson was outfought and dominated against his underdog opponent who landed thunderous hooks on the way to referee Herb Dean stopping the bout in the fifth round.
UFC president Dana White later confirmed that the 36-year-old and Niko Price had gone to hospital after their respective defeats.
