Do you think Ngannou will run into someone who has a chin that can take his power?

    As history has shown us, there is always someone out there who can take your power, give it right back to you and make you crumble. Whether this happens to Ngannou is yet to be seen but I truly wonder is there some young and upcoming HW that might end up being the one who can take repeated shots from him and not be fazed.

    Probably Lewis, who does have a decent chin all things considered. And he has the power to scare Francis.

    I think Lewis KOs him

    Ngannou is extremely overrated, he has a couple of good wins and the rest are old washed up cans. His record looks good on paper but doesn’t mean a whole lot.

    He already has, it's one of the worst fights as well.

    Honestly think Lewis would have knocked him out in the rematch. Shame that Lewis has to go against Gane who is a really bad matchup for him.

    Imo if your strategy is to "take" francis power, its not a good one.
    Better run...excuse me, better move, use footwork, keep him at distance with kicks and try to make him use his gas tank.
    Easy to state though

    Derrick Lewis? The guy who has been KO'd 4 times? Including by JDS, Shawn Jordon, and Matt Mitrione? Not exactly an iron chin. Maybe he can KO Ngannou but he can definitely be KO'd too.

    There is no one with a "chin" who can take Ngannou's power because getting KO'd at heavyweight is not about how good your "chin" is. Anyone can get knocked out at Heavyweight, especially against guys like Ngannou.

    In their second fight, Miocic demonstrated ridiculous durability, a prime example of someone who can take a lot of damage, but still ended up getting KO'd. If you keep getting hit by someone like Ngannou, you're going to get put down eventually, doesn't matter how well you can take it. Even guys with unreal ability to take shots like Mark Hunt and Roy Nelson have been KO'd.

    If you don't want to get KO'd by Ngannou, you don't do it by having a "chin" that can take his shots, you do it by not getting hit in the first place like Stipe in the first fight.

    I mean. Stipe ate some of his shots and kept coming.

    Exactly. You beat him with skills and execution. Stipe had it in the first fight, but not so much in the second. Ngannou definitely worked on his game and got better. Stipe might be past the point where he can still beat Ngannou. I think Gane has the right style and skills to beat Black Beast and possibly Ngannou.

    No man can take a clean punch from Ngannou, maybe when he gets older but not now. Ngannou was coming off a loss and had a horrible gun shy performance against Lewis. Not saying that Lewis can’t win again, maybe he has the style to confuse Francis and avoid danger but he wouldn’t be able to take a good ole bomb square in the face.

    This guy took 88 sig strikes (in 3 rounds) from prime JDS. Closest one I can think of. If only Carwin was born 10 years later.

    Anyone in HW div can get slept at any moment by another HW. Thats just the nature of that division. They all have power and if a shot lands it could end the night for anyone.

    When he dies and meets his maker. God's chin. Don't know why Francis is punching him, but here we are.

    Stipe ran into that last shot. He thought he had Francis hurt and came in. Remember Pacman vs Marquez. Running into a punch is the worst

    Completely agree about the first fight. Honestly, I highly doubt Lewis makes it past Gane. I think Gane stops him with a body shot or with volume and Lewis getting gassed, or at least gets a dominant decision. I don't think Lewis gets a Hail Mary KO like against Volkov, but you never know, I suppose...

    exactly it's the toughest category, because of that there's never been a dominant champion in HW.

    Francis is training Striking with the legendary Teddy, Grappling with Usman the green Francis that Miocic fought doesn't exist anymore this is a scarier monster now.
