It seems Francis Ngannou has been working on his wrestling, just ask Shaquille O’Neal

Shaquille O’Neal is a towering man, but lifting skyscapers is a Tuesday for Francis Ngannou

“The Predator” posted a video of him and “Diesel” catching up in a gym. The two giants posed for a photo together. Shaq complimented Ngannou’s lean physique, but he was not prepared for what was next. The one-time UFC title challenger shot in and lifted this author’s namesake like it was nothing.

“Yeah, that’s the first time I’ve ever been picked up,” Shaq divulged to the cameraman.

Ngannou (14-3) will supposedly fight Jairzinho Rozenstruik (10-0) at the UFC’s planned May 9 card. The fight was originally to headline UFC Colombus, which was supposed to be moved to the UFC Apex before being cancelled outright due to the COVID-19 crisis. It was added to the main card of UFC 249 before that event was also nixed.
