Francis Ngannou effortlessly lifts Lauro Sanko and shakes a leg with her
Francis Ngannou is widely regarded as one of the strongest athletes to ever compete in the sport of MMA. Considering that, it’s not too surprising to see Ngannou use his world-famous strength during a dance session at the gym.
Laura Sanko, who works as an analyst and reporter for UFC and ESPN, recently took part in a dance session with Ngannou. The UFC heavyweight champion is known for his friendly demeanor outside the Octagon and had no qualms about shaking a leg with Sanko in a cage at the gym.
In fact, ‘The Predator’ featured an impressive spin during their dance. And as if spinning a few times while keeping his cool wasn’t impressive enough, he did so by lifting Sanko into the air.
