    My initial thought when I fight started was "either Ngannou is the biggest human in the world or Mihajlovic is tiny".



    Seriously though this fight had to be one of the biggest mismatches in size that I can think of in the UFC. Mihajlovic was one of the weakess 228lbs i've seen. He has the frame of a midsize middleweight. Almost like a fatter/more muscular version of Chris Leben. Contrast that with Ngannou who is a big HW and its like this is a throwback to UFC 1.

    Yeah. Ridiculous mismatch. Looked like Rumble/Yoshida.

    Was like watching Danny Devito fight Arnold Schwarzenegger over who was a better Batman villain.

    Isn't the size difference about the same as DC vs Jones?

    DC is built like a little tank...... kind of like Fedor. Mihajlovic has a smaller frame than Fedor and DC.

    He was an overweight LHW, or possibly even a middleweight. He was a can brought in for Ngannou to smash.

    Really no way around that assessment either. Mihaljovic beat absolutely no one of note in his fights before this and generally had trouble finishing the cans with losing records he was fighting. Not sure why they made this fight. What does Ngannou learn from destroying a guy so clearly beneath him?

    To build up a hype train just like they did with sage northcutt and whoever else. Half of these people on sherdog buy into it and think he's the next best thing. I guess we'll see

    What is this suppose to show? Cain is built like a neanderthal and was only 1.5 lbs lighter than Travis. I'm not talking about height difference.

    This is awesome...he must have been cutting height early in his career.

    Also Mihajlovic failed in the can role so miserably I was angry, I don't even think Ngannou landed one clean shot. Nothing for the highlight reel there which is really disappointing considering that was the whole point of the match-up.
