Round 1: Overeem swinging right out of the gate, Ngannou responds but neither lands clean. Overeem clinches up and Ngannou turns them around, he’s got Overeem on the fence. Foot stomps by Ngannou. Overeem controlling Ngannou’s arm so he can’t throw. Referee Dan Miragliotta resets the action. Ngannou coming in with the jab and then he absolutely destroys Overeem with an uppercut. Overeem’s eyes are way in the back of his head. Scary stuff.
Official result: Francis Ngannou def. Alistair Overeem via KO (uppercut) at 1:42 of Round 1
