Francis Ngannou defeated Cain Velasquez in 26 seconds at UFC Phoenix.
Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Twenty-six seconds.

That’s how long it took for Francis Ngannou to put a stop to Cain Velasquez’s Octagon return. Ngannou bested the former UFC heavyweight champion in the blink of an eye on Sunday night in the main event of UFC Phoenix, stopping Velasquez with punches after the Arizona native’s knee buckled in an exchange along the cage.

Check out reaction to Ngannou’s victory below, plus the best of the rest from a roller-coaster night at UFC Phoenix.
