Ngannou debuted in the UFC in 2015, earning six impressive victories via finish, including a brutal knockout over former champ Andrei Arlovski. This eventually led to a title shot against Stipe Miocic at UFC 220. Despite opening strongly, Ngannou was slowly dominated over the coarse of five rounds, losing a unanimous decision. After this Ngannou lost a decision to Derrick Lewis in a lacklustre fight, disappointing many fans. Since then Ngannou has won three straight fights via first round KO. Two of them include former champs Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.
