Max Holloway once again dominated Jose Aldo, defending his featherweight title Saturday night in the main event of UFC 218. White even admitted that he liked the idea of adding the fight to UFC 220, which is scheduled for January 20th in Boston.

Overeem lay on the mat for an extended period with his toes curled as Ngannou did a victory lap around the Octagon. He quickly initiated the clinch but wasn't able to control Ngannou. They separate and Ngannou lands a couple jabs. After avoiding another looping left hook, Ngannou sent the Dutchman flying with a vicious counter left hand that turned the lights out before he hit the canvas.

Round One: The round begins with Overeem immediately swinging at Ngannou, Ngannou grabs Overeem and he holds him against the cage wall. Overeem was left stiff with his toes curled.

The 31-year-old Ngannou was homeless five years ago on the streets of Paris, France.

For Ngannou, all it took was a nasty left hook to KO Overeem with 1:42 gone in the first round for him to book himself as the next contender for the UFC Heavyweight Championship against Stipe Miocic. "I got hit with a uppecut from he**, one of his specialities which we [knew] were very risky". "Dana White said the victor will get a title shot so I think I've got it". "I'm on my way to the title shot", said Ngannou following the knockout win.
