Stipe vs. Ngannou is the HW match we've been waiting for. So how does the smaller Champ tackle this big challenger? Does he circle away from the power hand, land potshots on the outside and the occasional combination when it opens up, and work for a decision? Will he try to take Francis down and do some ground n' pound? Is it wise to go for a submission? Something straightforward but unexpected like a quick armbar or kimura? I think a lot of folks are underrating Stipe right now because Francis is the new commodity and a KO artist. Let's not forget the Champ is quickly approaching HW Goat territory with an unmatched 3 title defenses - if he wins this one. He ain't flashy, he's not the biggest, or the biggest talker, but damn it that's why I like him! A humble Champion has earned his respect, and I think he'll pull out a victory here against what is obviously a very hard hitter. Francis has yet to really be challenged. We don't know what all he's capable of. However, that also means his weaknesses have yet to be exposed. How's his ground game? His cardio? He won't be able to hide those potential inadequacies at this high level. And I have a feeling the likes of Fabricio Werdum could submit him. What you think, Sherbros?
