    Nagannou's wrestling is going to be exposed sooner or later. He can't wrestle and I highly doubt his wrestling is getting much improvement working in france.

    If I was stipes coach I would be pressuring him to take a offensive wrestling approach to this fight, but everyone wants to just stand and bang these days so im expecting Nagannou to knock stipe down.

    Stipe will bring him back to earth

    Smush him into the cage
    Get those big muscles working
    Tire him
    Get that takedown and break him

    Keep believing you're own hype Francis

    You knocked out Reem and Andrei ..
    Whooooooopeee

    OR, like most hype trains, it gets derailed badly. I don't know that it does or not, but Jones meteoric rise was the exception, not the rule, and he demonstrated a full and complete skillset on the way. Ngannou is a power puncher who's best wins are two guys with no chin between them. They're good fighters for sure, but conventional wisdom said that if a Ngannou punch whiffed them, they'd go down. We haven't seen him tested by anybody actually durable or with skilled grappling.

    Well I never said he could beat Cain, I don't even know if he could beat Stipe. I just said it can take you a long way, which is why he's fighting for the title. Also as much as I love Cain, I would be hesitant to even let him sniff a title shot. He can't be trusted to show up.

    Nice way to discredit 2/4 of Stipe's best career wins.

    Worst case scenario, Stipe gets a BRAND NEW CAR!

    Yeah, that's the shitty thing about Cain. The guy is so good but can't stop getting hurt. It's very unfortunate because skillwise.. based on his performances and such, I consider him one of the best HW's ever.

    Let him.
    he will learn the hard way not to do that.

    But then again, it can be simply mind games, or his confidence in himself showing up.... which is the same one Stipe has...

    I'm rooting for Stipe but even though he has evolved a great deal over the past couple of years, Francis believes its not enough. You got to respect that cause he's keeping it real.If he should ko/tko Stipe and does it early-- the UFC has something special....and I'm talking " Mike Tyson " special.

    Just think about this.Ngannou stiffs Stipe and they grant Miocic immediate rematch but he suffers injury in training and Travis Browne waves his hand cause he's only human being willing to step up in minimal time before fight .....
    Fast forward to fight night and they show Travis come to cage and he's obviously shook as he's sweating an ocean and Ronda is putting xanax bars in his water as he looks like he wants out.

    Ok- this is the marketing dollars that the UFC is willing to risk every time Ngannou defends his title as baddest man on planet. The Mike Tyson effect as they have contenders " Frank Bruno" themselves to the cage.

    Flip side of the coin, Stipe is on a K.O streak of his own and what if MIocic connects on the button of Ngannou and Francis is out cold on cage floor???

    This is what we call a " win win" for the UFC and their probably rooting for Ngannou cause of the way he's been dispatching his unfortunate opponent.
