    · Said he seen worse fights than that and Joe Rogan was overreacting.

    · Believes people saying the fight was bad because they were expecting a lot out of both him and Francis. He agrees.

    "The Black Beast" is delusional.

    The only reason people like Black Beast is because he posts memes on social media. He isn't even funny, he's just awkward.

    He put money on himself winning a decision most likely. But ya I guess a pro fighters back just starts fuckin his day up the moment the fight starts

    Kimbo vs. Dada wasn't that bad in hindsight.

    he said himself how terrible it was!!!
    He is now trying to rationalize and bank of us erasing that fight from our collective memory...

    Sorry, it was a terrible fight! There's absolutely no way around it.

    he made Woodley title defense fights look exciting!!!

    I actually agree with him to a degree.

    It was a stinker, but we've seen dozens and dozens of stinkers across every weight class in as many years. The fact that both are known as hitters, and are giant heavyweights, is what colored it so badly.

    We see what looks like sparring point fights on a pretty regular basis, I would say one every other card or so is this type of stinker. It's just far worse optics when its heavyweights and we're expecting a KO.

    When I was there live, you could just feel the anticipation of one big strike landing. It was boring but that tension did make it more interesting.

    I was also going to win alot of money if black beast won, so it was much more interesting to me. Betting on fights can help alot to give interest.

    When you make a Tyron Woodley title defense look exciting by comparison, you know you have fucked up.

    It wasn't really a fight, but I don't blame him. His back gave out which is a big deal ( even makes it hard to walk), and Ngannou didn't throw anything.
