The scariest man in the division is back in action.
Francis NGannou will face his toughest test to date when he takes on Junior Dos Santos at UFC 215. The Cameroon native has been flawless to date in the UFC and finished all five of his bouts so far. His latest fight was a demolition of Andrei Arlovski back in January.

‘The Predator’ clipped Arlovski with a raking left hook and followed it up with a thunderous uppercut. After feeling NGannou’s power, Arlovski wanted no more.
Dos Santos, the former heavyweight champion, is coming off a rough first round KO to current champion Stipe Miocic. He could have received an easier tune-up fight than this to get back into his groove. ‘Cigano’ is still a gifted fighter and, even at 33, not finished just yet. He faces a formidable foe in the Cameroonian, though.
NGannou is believed by many to be the next big thing at heavyweight. At 30 years of age, he’s no spring chicken so this could be his springboard into title contention. His devastating KO power has yet to meet its match in the octagon and Dos Santos will have to box clever in order to survive this one.
The card, due to take place on September 9 in Edmonton, has no main event as of yet.
