UFC heavyweight Francis Ngannou is aptly known as “The Predator.” Crocodiles are actual predators in the wild.
And so Alistair Overeem, Ngannous’s UFC 218 opponent, was being clever by sharing a photo on Instagram of when he lifted (“caught”) a crocodile (“predator”) with his bare hands to hype their pay-per-view co-main event that could be a title eliminator.
A post shared by Alistair Overeem (@alistairovereem) on
That post was on Sunday. Ngannou (10-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) saw the photo and today took the opportunity to roast Overeem (43-15 MMA, 8-4 UFC) for it.
This guy is funny! He’s thinking that on December 2nd he’s going to play with a baby animal in the petting ZOO ??????
As Ngannou points out, that crocodile’s mouth is sealed shut, which is the equivalent of fighting “The Predator” with his hands tied behind his back. So, yeah, Ngannou kind of got Overeem on this one.
UFC 218 takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.view original article >>
