Joe Rogan beat Francis Ngannou's PowerKube record in 2018 with a thunderous kick to the pad. The podcaster was happy about breaking Ngannou's record, but acknowledged that the Cameroon native used his fists while he used his legs.

Rogan recorded a reading of over 151,000 on the powercube machine. This insane reading beats Francis Ngannou's previous record of just over 129,000.

Francis Ngannou would like to try his hand at boxing

Francis Ngannou would like to put his freakish punching power to good use in the boxing ring against the likes of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. 'The Predator' has expressed his desire to compete in boxing before he retires from combat sports.

During an interview with TMZ-Sports, the Cameroonian said he would like to test himself against the two aforementioned boxers. He believes he can do some damage in the boxing ring, given his striking knowledge:

"I can't see myself how to retire without boxing... Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, I would like to test myself to their level... At the end of the day, it's just about throwing hands, throwing punches, having a good delivery system to produce bombs, and I am sure if I deliver my own punches pretty good, I can make some damage."

There has been controversy about whether or not 'The Predator' would be returning to the UFC after his fight with 'Bon Gamin'. Ngannou seems to be acting on his own but Dana White believes there are others who are affecting the heavyweight champion's judgment.
