    He beat Curtis Blaydes twice convincingly, a guy who GnP'd Overeem into oblivion and smashed JDS.

    Haters will say that Jon Jones can beat Big Frank.

    But the only way to beat him is to wear him down with wrestling, and hit him with some nice shots - Stipe made the blueprint for this.

    Unfortunately, very few guys can follow in his Stipe's footsteps. Blaydes, even with his nice wrestling, couldn't wear down Big Frank, and you think Jones can?

    Jones' only chance is to stay on the outside and throw some nice oblique kicks, but Big Frank is long and WILL touch that chin, which is the kiss of death in the HW division.

    I don't think the recent Jones would do well. The Jones who ran through the LHW division when it had a lot of talent (including two wins over Cormier) could've been a force at HW. The Jones who struggles with MW strikers (and has forgotten he can wrestle) not so much.

    STIOPIC could get the job done again.

    Jones will b flattened if he faces Big Frank.

    Stipe had to lay and pray a green Ngannou in the most boring fight ever

    Sad!

    He’s legit, but Stipe is too.

    I still don’t understand who showed up to fight Derrick Lewis. If that guy ever returns to the octagon the Heavyweight division will go into an extended hibernation period.

    Jones is a tall skinny guy. He shouldn't be fighting big, bulky, heavyweights.

    It all depends on if Jones can add some muscle to get a bit stronger at HW. I would have had much more confidence in that years ago before he got USADAd and could fuck around with some roids to bulk up without worrying too much. Now, he can't risk it and so I think Ngannou smokes him.

    if that was the most boring fight ever you must've missed the fight of the century: Ngannou vs Black Beast.

    Yea I guess you can try to get into his head and make him hesitant, but you can't rely on that.

    Jones don't want nothing to do with the HW class in general, nevermind Ngannou.

    “Haters will say Jon Jones can beat big Frank”


    Ummmm quite the opposite in fact, most morons don’t think Jones can win at HW.

    He isn't very good. He just hits brutally hard.

    Vulnerable PTSD-stricken Ngannou is the blueprint for victory

    All I know is when @Soul On Ice picks a fighter to win then says he will leave if they lose, I'm betting huge on the opponent

    He's a one trick pony but very good at it . his ground gamr is shit and his cardio is questionnable but it doesn't really matter. He's a guy with a style that want to end a fight as quickly and as brutally as possible

    He is the future of French mma, probably the whole nation of African mma.

    The only top tier HW in his prime that Ngannou ever fought was Stipe where he got dominated. He lost to Derek Lewis ffs.

    Both Nganou and Blaydes are very good at beating up old relics.
