    As the title says.

    Normally I would have picked Cain but as of now there are too many questions surrounding him. My pick is NGannou by KO/TKO.

    Who you got?

    If he shows up like the Cain of old, I think he wins fairly easily. Big if though.

    If Cain has anything left after all these years he should embrace the grind on Francis and break him, given the extent of the layoff and the fact that Francis hits like a truck I can see Francis knocking Cain out.

    Having said that I have faith in Cain to embrace the grind.

    This is a really hard one to call. If gun shy Francis shows up we in for a snooze fest. If Francis we saw in the Overeem and Blades shows up Cain looking at another retirement. Hats off to Cain for hopping in immediately against the best Wild Card in the HW division though.

    I dont think Cain can pull off a Cruz / GSP comeback . He has had too many injuries and he is too reckless i think he will walk into something and get KOd.
    Rooting for Cain but picking Ngannou to win.

    I got Ngannou by KO round 1....but as soon as Cain lands a takedown I change my pick to Cain by tko round 2.

    Won't be surprised by anything, but I lean Francis here

    People forget that the only time Francis really lost a fight (not counting Lewis) was to stipe. Stipe had to utilize some real striking skill and movement on the feet to get that done.

    I'm not even sure Cain had those tools in his prime.

    I have little faith in Cain at this point but I'd love to see him get the win. Francis by KO/TKO.

    I agree with this.

    Taking a heavy shot from a power puncher like Ngannou after 2.5 years is no joke. All it takes is for Ngannou to land flush and this could be over really quickly.

    Cain will need to keep this fight in range and grind as much as possible.
