WATCH: Francis Ngannou wins UFC debut, lands vicious uppercut KO in Orlando

BY Damon Martin • December 19, 2015

Frenchman Francis Ngannou made quite an impact in his UFC debut as he rocketed an uppercut in the second round that knocked out Luis Henrique in the first fight of the night from Orlando.

Ngannou is a solid prospect coming out of France with huge size at 6-feet-4-inches tall and a ridiculous 83-inch reach that he used to punish Henrique, especially in the second round where he got the finish.

Once Ngannou found his range on the smaller Henrique, he started pumping a series of straight shots to the head, and after hurting the Brazilian, the UFC newcomer came after him with guns blazing.

With Henrique backed up against the cage wall, Ngannou uncorked a hellish uppercut that connected flush and sent the Brazilian crashing to the mat, knocked out cold from the shot.

Ngannou celebrates his first UFC win with one of the most vicious heavyweight knockouts in recent history.
