    I was part of the Nganou hype crew. We all thought he was the next GOAT hw, he was talked about all over the place. Since stipe beat him hes almost become irrelevant, this is probably the worst loss of hype ive seen as a fan since ronda.

    Good to see you're finally admitting to being an idiot.

    I’m no Rhonda fan, but she was at least a champ with a few defenses. I don’t think it’s a good comparison.

    As glorious as Ronda’s fall from grace was, she can’t really be considered a hype train. She was a 6 time defending champ. I mean WMMA itself is a hype train just waiting to die out.

    I wouldn’t consider any former champion to be in “hype train” territory. Most recent crash before Ngannou was probably Rumble’s train between both Cormier losses.

    Francis didn’t really get going. At least Ronda beat people and had a belt. Yes against cans, soccer moms and hoes but still

    So are we calling a former Olympian who defended her title 5 times a hyptetrain now? What does that make McNuggets?

    Ngannou isn't even comparable to Ronda. He had like six weeks of hype coming strictly from the UFC PR department.

    Ronda was a mainstream crossover star.

    He gave himself away when he said he would love to fight Brock Lesnar.

    It’s not bad bruh but in the fight game it’s not great in the cage.

    Stipe brutally stopped his five previous opponents, say what you want but Ngannou still survived to a decision and did more damage than in all of Miocic's combined defenses. Francis got his ass kicked, but he can still beat lots of heavyweights.

    To me Stipe has really proven himself. I had doubts about his hittability and ability to take fights to the ground. He has shown excellent head movement, good fight IQ and willingness to wrestle when necessary.

    I cannot think of many HW who could have avoided Ngannou's punches like Stipe, who admitted that Ngannou hurt him.
