Francis Ngannou is one of the most imposing figures in all of mixed martial arts and that’s a fact a social influencer learned all too well just recently when he was offered the chance to punch the reigning UFC heavyweight champion.
Ngannou posted the hilarious clip on social media featuring Rashed Saif Belhasa — better known to his 1.6 million Instagram followers as ‘Money Kicks’ — as he threw body shots at the 6-foot-4 mountain of muscle.
As he calmly sips his coffee, “Money Kicks” is wailing away on him with body shots perhaps hoping that one of his punches might catch Ngannou off guard but no such luck.
Instead, Ngannou barely has to acknowledge the punches as he continues to drink his coffee.
“It was a good effort,” Ngannou wrote as a caption to the video.
While his punches didn’t work against Ngannou, “Money Kicks” will attempt to do better when he has his own fight with a bout scheduled on July 30 in Dubai.
