The fight involved some ruthless leg kicks and brutal punches from both ends. However, the power and resilience from Ngannou couldn’t find a match apart from the 38-year-old Miocic. With this victory, Ngannou has avenged his loss to Miocic at UFC 220 three years back.

We must mention that the epic battle was witnessed by some notable celebs like Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian. As the Rock brought in some high praise for the Cameroonian, other notable celebs like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Stephen A Smith also joined the party.

Ngannou called for a training session with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson last year

This is not the first time the Cameroonian has received enormous admiration from the most electrifying man in sports-entertainment history. Last year, The Rock hailed him as one of the most dominant Heavyweight fighters in the world. Besides, he put his bet on Ngannou to take home the UFC heavyweight title.

Ngannou, on the other side, returned the favor by calling for a probable raining session in Gym with the Brahma Bull. We all know that ‘The Predator’ has put some significant efforts into this fight with all those intense training sessions. While doing that, he tried every trick in his bag to bring in some new exercises and training drills to his schedule.

This eventually motivated the predator to call for a training session with none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. The UFC Heavyweight took to Twitter and shared a picture of his chiseled physique while talking about his plans to train with the Rock.

Ngannou’s tweet ultimately caught The Rock’s attention and he further invited the UFC fighter to train along with him at his Gym, Iron Paradise. 

The Iron Paradise awaits brother. The future @ufc heavyweight champion and the People’s Champion will finally join forces 🏋🏾‍♂️ Post-workout tequila on me!,” he wrote on Twitter.

So, after putting his hand on the coveted UFC title, we can certainly see ‘the predator’ pumping some iron with the people’s champ soon.
