I was one of those guys who thought Stipe had no chance. But he went in there and fought a very smart fight. Certainly not the prettiest win for him, and it's not without alot of stalling and a good dose of bike riding, but at the end of the day he got the W. Ngannou looked super slow in there, his punches were ridiculously telegraphed. Stipe was basically just waiting to tire him out, and it's beyond me how Ngannou didn't realize that would be his game plan going into it. At any rate, Stipe is a legit Heavyweight champ, and his "0 f*cks given" attitude towards Dana and the UFC is a breath of fresh air. Super respectful guy also, but humble. The silent, strong type. Ngannou has alot of improving to do; it's very evident that he just started training for MMA. But he's a great prospect and he'll be back strong. Hespect to both warriors.
