It took Francis Ngannou only 45 seconds to finish Curtis Blaydes in their rematch in the main event of UFC Beijing. Ngannou landed heavy punches right from the start and didn’t let up, forcing referee Marc Goddard to call an end to the contest. After his win, Ngannou named Junior dos Santos, Alexander Volkov, and Stipe Miocic as possible opponents for him next.

In the co-main event, Alistair Overeem made short work of Sergey Pavlovich with nasty ground-and-pound in round one. Overeem announced that “The Reem is back” after beating the previously undefeated Pavlovich.
