Francis Ngannou: A new contender was born in the heavyweight division

Everyone already knows that Francis Ngannou and Kamaru Usman are great friends, so it's no surprise that the heavyweight champion was praised after Mohammed Usman's second-round knockout victory last night. As part of the central part of the evening of Saturday's UFC Vegas 59 event, we also watched the finals of 'TUF'

Mohammed Usman won it by knocking out Zac Pauga in the second round, and Ngannou immediately contacted Ngannou on his Twitter profile, where he wrote: "A new contender was born in the heavyweight division and personally I want no business with this man Congrats brother @Umohammed97"

By the way, Mohammed is the younger brother of the current welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman.

With this victory, Mohammed set a record of eight wins and two losses, and with this, he also won a contract with the UFC. After the victory, Usman said: “I had to put the work in to get here,” Usman said. “Fighting is fighting.

It’s not, ‘Oh, Kamaru’s your brother. Now let’s just push you up here. You’re in the “Ultimate Fighter” finale, you don’t have to fight these two hard monsters that are coming in at 265 pounds to be here.

We’ll just put you here because your brother is Kamaru Usman.’ “That’s false. Everything about fighting is yourself. That’s why I love it so much, because as much as people speak about my brother, that’s why I love it because I’m still the one that has to go out there and compete and have to fight and have to win for you guys to even be up here and talk crap to me and tell me about my brother.

If I don’t win, I’m not even getting up here and looking at you guys”. Mohammed Usman finished Zac Pauga with a brutal counter-left hook, and this was just his UFC debut. Usman competes in the heavyweight division, and he also won TUF 30.
