It seems like most people in the media are scared for Stipe because he has to fight Ngannou. I can't remember the last time it seemed like people were so confident in someone's abilities that they are almost scared for the other person. Joe Rogan held a podcast with Stipe and he couldn't stop himself from boasting about how scary Ngannou is. To Stipe's credit he seems unfazed by it which I think could be a big difference. Ngannou's best wins are against Arlovski and Overeem, both who tend to be defeated mentally sometimes. I want Stipe to win but after seeing Ngannou rag doll Anthony Hamilton into a kimurra with his back against the fence it seemed like he was different from the rest.
