    Cool to see. Crazy that they are airing out this training footage. Is he going to be the next big star or is he going to get KOd by some nobody before he even gets going?

    Weird how France is all of a sudden producing HW talent. Who would have thought?

    I’m sure every Olympic wrestler anywhere near their weight can take these guys down with ease if they aren’t getting punched. Francis sucks at wrestling. Elite high school kids would outwrestle him.

    This must've been ages ago since Ngannou last trained in France in 2018

    For an MMA fighter he doesn't suck at wrestling lol

    His takedown defense is pretty good, especially for HW standards

    Many UFC wrestlers would wrestlefuck Ngannou and Gane once they have them against the cage.

    It doesn't look like hard sparring, but they are wearing gloves and punching. Every Olympic wrestler near their weight can take them down... But how many Olympic wrestlers near their weight are getting into MMA? Maybe a future star.

    But you are way off with thinking Francis sucks at wrestling... He wouldn't have beaten the guys he has beaten if that was true...

    What's the next big revelation? HW Olympic weightlifters can squat more than Ngannou?

    maybe, but it’s HW so this Olympic wrestler will probably end up getting flatlined by an obese dockworker on the regional scene next week.

    Woah a wrestler taking Ngannou down? I’d have never thought that after watching Miocic take Ngannou down

    Cain put Francis's back on the cage and than got KOd. Stipe put Francis's back on the cage and got his takedown stuffed.

    Did you not see Ngannou take down Miocic? Obama isn't president anymore.

    Imagine thinking Ngannou has bad TDD after beating Cain, Stipe, and Blaydes x2, the literal best technical wrestlers of the UFC HW division’s history, you’ve gotta be severely mentally handicapped

    A member of the Tunisian Olympic wrestling team. That's probably about the equivalent of a D3 wrestler.

    And it doesn't look like either one are trying to defend.

    If you notice Brits basically took over heavyweight boxing, those West Europeans have some big athletic boys there.
