3. Francis Ngannou
Ngannou has the touch of death, but it’s easy to underestimate how good a boxer he actually is. Many fans dismiss him as a pure power puncher, but that’s doing him a disservice. ‘The Predator’ actually wanted to be a boxer before he even heard of MMA. He moved from Cameroon to Paris to try and make a better life.
However, he does have some excellent technical skills. One of his favorite techniques is his uppercut, which he uses to great effect. Just ask Alistair Overeem and Cain Velasquez. Both of these men have fallen foul of his perfect timing and vicious power.
