The two ways I can see Stipe derailing the hype train that is Francis Ngannou 1. On the feet, moving backwards and counter punching like he did vs Werdum. Stipe is a seriously dangerous counter puncher. 2. Takedowns and GnP like he did vs Mark Hunt. Mark Hunt doesn't quite have the speed or timing that Ngannou has, but Stipe did an awesome job avoiding avoiding his power and getting takedowns. Stipe just doesn't put himself in positions like the one Overeem was in when Ngannou blasted his head into orbit. Stipe and his team are also master strategists. He approached his fights vs Werdum, Hunt, and Overeem so differently and so well, it would be crazy to expect any less for Francis. We've seem him dominate top guys in every position, and we've seen him go 5 long rounds and come out on top. Let's not forget that Ngannou has only fought ONE top 10 guy, while Stipe has KNOCKED OUT FIVE top 10 guys in a row. Of course, Ngannou hits hard etc etc, and "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face."
