Cain Velasquez

Cain Velasquez

A highly anticipated heavyweight tilt between former division champion Cain Velasquez and feared knockout artist Francis Ngannou headlined tonight's UFC Phoenix event. The fight is over just like that.

Velasquez at his best is, quite simply, the best heavyweight in the world.

Ngannou did not call anyone out following the biggest win of his career against Velasquez.

Cormier, who is closing in on retirement, has a couple of options for blockbuster fights meaning Ngannou could be left waiting for his second title fight challenge and may end up getting the rematch against Miocic. I promise you guys, I'm back, as I said before, I'm back. "That's when he's unsafe".

Ngannou is fully back on track after a hard first half of 2018.

Francis Ngannou (13-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) is back, if his quick win over Cain Velasquez (14-3 MMA, 12-3 UFC) is any indication.

Ngannou's power is just about the scariest thing in the UFC today, with his knockout threat leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, and he says that power will be the deciding factor in Sunday night's main event. I told you yesterday I have some surprise for you. You will see me a lot - I hope you enjoyed it.

Cain Velasquez returned to action for the first time since defeating Travis Browne via first round TKO at UFC 200 in July of 2016. But his inactivity also was by choice, as he became a father for the second time last year and wanted to devote himself to his family during his wife's pregnancy and his son's first year.

"Man, I thought I was super ready for this fight, even coming in here, super calm and relaxed, ready to go", Velasquez said. "This is why this sport is so great: You never know what's going to happen".
