UFC heavyweight contender Francis Ngannou may not be able to fight due to the global coronavirus pandemic, but that isn’t stopping “The Predator” from keeping himself in the limelight.

The power-punching Cameroonian (14-3) has launched a regular video blog to chart the story of his MMA career. Titled simply “Francis,” the vlogs feature behind-the-scenes training clips, videos clipped from YouTube and social media and crowd footage of his fights interspersed with closeup, first-person narration from Ngannou himself as he talks through his career to date.

The first episode kicks off with Ngannou making his preparations to fight fellow knockout artist Jairzinho Rozenstruik, while Episode 2 features Ngannou talking about moving to France and starting his MMA journey. The third episode, featured above, focuses on the start of Ngannou’s UFC career after making it to the biggest stage in the sport.

It’s a fascinating look at the career of one of the most dangerous punchers in the sport, told in Ngannou’s own words.
