    If Gable trained a little standup and came to the UFC and used the same strategy that Brock used on hunt he would take down and dominate ngannou and be the new UFC HW CHAMP right now. Brock would beat him too.

    Wrestling is different from MMA wrestling. They have great starting points but it's not directly translatable.

    Every fight starts on the feet.


    Gable is one thing (kid is 21 exponential opportunity for growth at the right camp for some years). To say Brock would beat the best current HW MMA fighter in the world is fucking laughable. This is indicative of why piss belts shouldn’t be allowed to make threads.

    Brock would be turtled up in the corner after doing a cartwheel. That guy hated getting hit.

    True but i think Gable could do it with a little stand up training and as for brock he would definitely beat ngannou now.

    Brock was forced to stand with a shot Hunt for a round. Ngannou would end him.

    Hunt probably has better TDD than Ngannou if we're being honest.

    No, like he did against Carwin, Cain and Reem? No need to wait.

    No he wouldnt, Ngannou would be taken down as soon as he would go for his wild haymakers.

    .
    Hunt when he fought Lesnar was in the worst phase of his career, even Werdum beat him in Striking.

    Do you see Werdum beating Francis in Striking?!

    Francis lands a punch and Lesnar dies.

    I know as hard as it to believe for ufc casuals but Ngannou is not unbeatable. HW is just shit.

    Did you watch Stipe try to shoot on Ngannou? Did you watch Blaydes and Cain try to? Ngannou with cardio is extremely hard to take down.

    Touché but let’s be real Ngannou would cripple either of them in wheelchair boxing. Can’t shoot a double on a guy with no legs.

    I bet you said the same thing when brock was coming back to fight hunt.

    No he wouldnt, he would get taken down right away after the first haymaker

    You are supposed to go after the latest fight, there is a thing called IMPROVEMENT.

    That fight was overturned due to Brock's vitamins. No improvement. Just cheating. Try harder on this gimmick. Please.

    you talk like Francis was a beginner with bad TDD, he evolved a lot after training with Usman in the Wrestling category.
