A video of Francis Ngannou, who faces Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 on Saturday, January 22, emerged on social media where he is easily seen carrying ex-NBA star Shaquille O’Neal.
It’s a video that dates back to April 2020 and has been buzzing for a few days on Twitter. It shows the current UFC heavyweight champion lifting the “Shaq” with great ease.

“Standing in the center of the UFC, I encountered a monster and I almost ran away, then I realized it was Shaq. I think this is the very first time someone has made me look so small,” the Cameroonian posted on social media.
Francis Ngannou challenges his belt on Saturday against the French Ciryl Gane, his former training partner at the MMA Factory in Paris. A fight that will be followed by the entire planet.
