    Poll:
    • "First Round Francis"
    • "DaDa N'Gannou"
    • "Francis 5000"

    Maybe it's not entirely fair to Francis to compare him to DaDa 5000, but after that 1st round, he looked absolutely drained. Moving like he was underwater or something...

    Speaking of which, who you got...

    First Round Francis vs Sea-Level Cain?

    Problem is Stipe beat him in the first round.


    I'd say Francis 5000

    How about still top 5 Francis.

    Jesus, people are acting like he can never win another fight.

    First round Francis makes a lot of sense.

    Lets be fair here, he looked like shit. He gassed in 4 mins, had no answer for Stipe's wrestling, and looked like a fish out of water.

    Him being top 5 says more about the HW division than it does about his skill set

    Who can actually exploit his wrestling weakness right now?
    Stipe, Cain...That's about it.

    Again, says more about the HW division than anything else.

    No, but the stark difference between Francis in the First Round... and Francis after the First Round, was glaring.

    He isnt a top 5 hw. UFC controls their own rankings and only beat overeem to get there. It's now very clear that JDS, Volkan, Werdum, hunt all beat Ngannou.

    Although I suppose it’s a little mean spirited, I find Francis 5000 to be pretty funny.
