    On Sunday, Feb 17th, we'll be seeing one of the craziest / badass HW match ups in a long time.

    Cain (-240) Francis (+180)

    [​IMG]

    Cain is easily one of the best UFC HW's of all time.
    - Freak Cardio
    - Decent chin (doesn't really matter vs Ngannou)
    - Power in both hands
    - Relentless pressure
    - Great wrestling (better than Stipe)
    - 2 time heavy weight champion
    - 5 round fighter

    Resume:

    Antonio Nogueira
    Brock Lesnar
    JDS x2
    Bigfoot Silva
    Travis Browne

    [​IMG]
    Probably the hardest hitter the UFC has ever seen

    - Insane power (all it takes is one shot)
    - Carries power (rocked Stipe in round 3)
    - heavy kicks
    - solid chin
    - good TDD early on
    - tough to close distance on

    - Cardio issues
    - easy to control on ground
    - hittable after gassing out
    - mentally weak (over came the demons in China)
    - showed trouble against wrestlers with good boxing

    Will Francis face the same issues with Cain as he did with Stipe? Or has he fixed those errors? And will Cain show up in prime form? Who the fuck knows.

    I'm 50-50 on this fight. If Cain shows up in prime form, this will be his. If Cain is rusty and Ngannou is on point, this will be over quickly.


    <Dana05> We'll see what happens

    Ngannou

    Used to root for Cain, but the last thing the division needs is him killing off Ngannou for good and then taking another two year injury hiatus

    Rootin for Cain. If even half of his old self shows up hes got it in the bag too. Wouldnt be surprised to see Francis tap or quit between rounds after an extensive mauling. Fuckin Cain man... biblical level tragedy.

    Black pride bless.

    Don't get me wrong, I like Cain, but it is too unbearable to wait for him to fight.

    I wanna see ngannou KO Cain to Bolivian, tell him at the presser "you will sleep" then launch him airborne like overeem.

    Francis is a cool guy making it at life and cain, well he just has that stupid fucking tattoo.

    cain is one of my all time favorites, plus if he wins it sets up stipe vs cain for a vacant belt or contender fight (cain obv wont fight dc)

    I like both. Think Ngannou wins by first round TKO but I'd be happy to see Cain win.

    There's a big unknown about both of these fighters. Who knows how Cain will look as long as its been since he's fought and who knows which Ngannou will show up. If it was even odds, I'd definitely go with Cain. Even with the +180, I'll never bet on Ngannou again after that shit he pulled in the Derrick Lewis fight. I was set to cash in on a very lucrative parlay. My underdogs came through. I thought Ngannou was the easy one to do his part, and he just came out and simply decided not to fight. They should have cut him. It was a travesty.

    I think Velasquez is an unknown quantity after such a long layoff but if he's anything like his championship self, he should lay waste to Ngannou.

    Ngannou never rocked Stipe.

    In fact stipe pretty easily picked Francis apart on the feet the whole fight.

    And Cain isn't the boxer that stipe is

    We're 5 days out and Cain hasn't pulled out yet.

    I can't fucking believe it.
