UFC heavyweight prospect Francis Ngannou has responded to former title challenger Alistair Overeem calling him out.
Earlier this week, Ngannou said he wanted to fight UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Mioic. Overeem called out Ngannou on Thursday and said he would allow him to skip in line.
“I heard someone is trying to skip the line. Can’t allow such a thing to happen,” Overeem said on Twitter. “So (Francis Ngannou) let’s go!”
Ngannou responded to Overeem by sending him a dark a message.
“Keep talking (expletive) and I will snap your with my punch,” Ngannou said.
The heavyweight prospect did not specify what he was going to snap, but with his insane power, he can probably snap whatever he wants.
Overeem and Ngannou are among the top contenders in the UFC heavyweight division. Overeem is currently ranked No. 1 in the official UFC rankings, while Ngannou is ranked No. 4.
Ngannou is unbeaten in the UFC. All five of his UFC wins have come by knockout or submission. Ngannou is currently coming off the most impressive win of his career. In January, Ngannou defeated former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski by TKO.
