UFC: Watch: Cain Velasquez trolls Dana White for Francis Ngannou - Ford Escort comparisons - Velasquez

Recently, UFC President Dana White compared Ngannou’s power to being hit by a Ford Escort. Velasquez speaking with MMAFighting.com, made fun of White’s comment. (via Twitter):

”Ford Escorts suck,” Velasquez said. “They’re weak. Weak ass Ford Escort. Is that the best [White] could come up with? He said ‘Ford Escort, that’s it. That’s the one.’”

When asked which car he’d use to describe his power, Velasquez said, “I dunno, it’d be better than that,” he said. “Anything would be better than that. They don’t even make Ford Escorts any more, do they? It should offend Francis, not me. I wasn’t called a Ford Escort.”

Ngannou also holds the record for the most hardest punch ever thrown. In a research performed at UFC’s Performance Institute, Ngannou threw a punch which recorded power of just over 129,000 units.
