    Gustafsson gets so much praise around here for being the best fighter to never hold a title but Rumble took him out with ease. I know that styles make fights but Rumble just made it look so easy. Who could forget this:

    He just made it look so easy. Dude needs to come back. He would still be a force and could be champ with DC retiring soon.

    That was one of the most electrifying knockout sequences of recent years.

    The gus fanboys and GOATJones haters were giving Rumble no chance, and he cracked the fck out of Gustafssons iron chin.

    Gus went into the fight thinking he should be champ... overlooked Rumble and got smashed. Is Normal when you Bang with a Blaster!!!

    Gus is an extremely overrated boxer because he has half decent boxing in a division with no boxing.

    Rumble relies more on physical gifts than a technically inclined striker like gus and thus, he shouldn't beat Gus. But he did.

    Stipe outclassed Ngannou standing, it's a good example of how that kind of striking battle should go if the technical striker is worth his salt. It's a bit skewed because Stipe is better than Gus and Rumble is slightly better than Francis technically speaking, but the comparison still stands imo

    LHW Rumble is a wrecking machine at the start of a fight. The problem is he quits when dragged into deeper waters. The victory doesn't show anything we don't already know.

    True but just take a look at this light heavyweight record. 6-2 with wins over Davis, Little Nog, Gus, Manuwa, Bader, and Glover and only losses coming to DC who is the worst stylistic matchup possible for him. Very good for a so-called one trick pony.

    I'm picking up what you're putting down, but did you really just compare Ngannou to Rumble?

    {<huh}

    Rumble was always the definition of a front runner. He either dominated or quit.

    They had an obvious clash of heads.

    If you believe Gus, the unintentional headbutt had a big effect on him.

    If I'm not mistaken, Gus said on the JRE that he blacked out after the headbutt hit him.

    The eye poke didn't lead to a finish.
