    You know what. I frequent Vegas very often and I’ve ran into Francis myself and dude had a very arrogant vibe to him. We were at a restaurant I was just making small talk in the lobby and said good job on your fight and he just gave me a very rude look/reaction. I get that he doesn’t speak English but who doesn’t understand ‘good job?’

    Yeah I got the arrogant vibe from him as well. But wouldn't you also be pretty cocky if you knocked out everyone the UFC put in front of you?

    He got humbled by Stipe and then showed his true colors vs Derrick Leeis. He can stick around beating up tomato cans but he'll never be champ.

    I never know what the hell Dana is trying to say when he talks for more than a minute straight.

    Stipe stole every bit of any arrogance he may have had, along with his soul.

    Dude looked like a shell of himself against Black Beast.

    Completely hesitant to pull the trigger.

    I still think he has tremendous potential, but he is going to have to regain his killer instinct.

    Dana and company hyped him up, it’s funny that Dana brought up how Francis knew he was going to beat Stipe when all of the promos leading up to UFC 220 made it seem like Francis was going to destroy Stipe.

    Francis had a rapid rise and of course when Dana and the UFC brass are singing your praise, you’re bound to believe in the hype too, so that is a big part of where that arrogance came from. None of this would be a problem if Francis went out and KO’d Stipe.

    Point I’m making is this is a classic Dana backtrack 101.

    Francis totally started feeling himself after the Overeem KO. I'm not surprised to hear this. Look at the embedded videos and interviews before the Stipe fight, then he performs like that against Lewis. LOL

    Francis vs. Hardy next.

    I swear Yoel & Ngannou fans have never heard of Ronnie Coleman or Jay Cutler.



    The only guy in this room that could be any era of UFC HW champ has a ponytail and can take face punches like Dillashaw.

    He thinks his shit don't sink. That's what happens when everybody fellates you like you're the greatest thing since sliced bread. The hype was ridiculous.

    I will never understand how anyone listens to that garbage podcast. Bryan's a terrible comedian and Schaub was a terrible fighter. Neither are interesting, smart, or entertaining. How the fuck does it still exist? Do that many dudes out there just not realize how many great podcasts there are out there?

    He definitely has the potential to be champ but he has to change his mentality in regards to his work ethic and belief, which idk if he can do

    Ya boy didn’t fall for the hype. Confirmed it after my short interaction with him. I also bet on Lewis/Ngannou going all 3 rounds too thinking he was gonna be gunshy.
