Francis Ngannou saw an opening and never let up, finishing Junior dos Santos in the main event of UFC on ESPN 3 from Minneapolis.

The former title contender immediately got the better of dos Santos, peppering him with heavy, heavy shots before going in for the kill.

In the co-main event of the night, and on opposite ends of the weight spectrum, flyweight Joseph Benavidez made sure he would be the No. 1 contender in his division by stopping Jussier Formiga.
