After an immense performance this Tuesday at the Dana White’s Contender Series, Tafon Nchukwi is the topic of the week. It killed his rival in an impressive way, rendering him unconscious for several minutes and causing him to vomit. The loser had to be removed on a stretcher and transferred to a clinic, taking into account the brain contusion he had at that time. This being the case, the president of UFC made a striking comparison.
A new chapter of the Dana White’s Contender Series took place this Saturday, where the knockout of the year finally came. This edition featured another night full of sleeping fighters, where four amateurs won professional deals with UFC. At the Apex in Las Vegas Tafon Nchukwi (4-0) closed the day with an absolutely brutal finish over Al Matavao (8-3). The latter had to be taken out of the cage on a stretcher, after being unconscious for more than a minute and causing concern about vomiting on the canvas.
“I don’t know what else you could look for in a guy who’s going to be a professional wrestler,” was what he began saying Dana, who clearly wants this professional in his company for much longer. «This guy is mean, aggressive, [tiene] incredible power and cardio to back it up. What scares me is that it is 4-0. He doesn’t have much experience. Tonight he fought with a guy who has 10 fights, “added the president.
Dana White’s message
“This guy reminds me of … you know, like a type figure Tyson. Physically, visually and obviously with his fighting style. He is 4-0 and with four knockouts. I didn’t see the first three, but the last one was one of the most vicious knockouts I’ve ever seen, “he said. Dana White, focusing on the potential it has in Mixed Martial Arts. In addition, he was very charismatic and has already won thousands of fans around the world.
It should be noted that until a few years ago Cameroon did not appear on the radar of many fighters from UFC, which has changed rapidly. Francis Ngannou, without any help, was the one who put his country on top. Of course, the African nation is looking very well now, taking into account that Tafon Nchukwi wants to carry the same legacy. With the two of them in the leading Mixed Martial Arts company, of course there will be a lot to talk about for a long time.
