This is the UFC on FOX 23 Andrei Arlovski vs. Francis Ngannou, a heavyweight bout at Friday night’s UFC event at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
Arlovski, who has actually won 2 of his past 5 fights, will deal with Ngannou, who is 4-0 in the UFC, on the main card.
Round 1: Big time area here for Ngannou, trying himself against a big name like Arlovski and former Heavyweight champion. Referee is Adam Martinez. They touch em up. Ngannou on the outside, and right off a little cautious. Overhand best grazes Arlovski. A number of leg kicks from the former champ, who is now shuffling back and threatening. Both appear like they wish to take out the other with a single shot, and an exchange there from range ends with both people tossing errant shots. And BOOM, a big shot from Ngannou, a right uppercut, drops Arlovski! Ngannou adopts the kill, which’s it– the ref steps in! Ngannou has gotten here. Ngannou wins by TKO!
