    Don't think Francis intentionally wants to land extra shots just for some sadistic pleasure. Francis is definitely no Jeremy Stephens or Palhares in terms of dishing out unnecessary punishment when an opponent is clearly done

    In the heat of the battle it's not easy to quickly identify whether an opponent is out for sure, especially when you have fighters playing possum like Werdum, or some with insane recovery. Also it's the ref's job to stop the fight

    Looks like he was trying to keep hitting reel even when the ref stepped in and actually had to grab his arm.

    What's wrong with follow up shots?
    Are they seen as brutal or unnecessary? Given the chance your opponent would do the same.
    It's fighting business in relatively controlled enviroinment, they are far less damaging than kicking in the head, stomping, hitting with the bat or iron rod on the street as seen in Youtube videos.

    And yet we have fighters who can show restraint.

    For me, I see it as a severe sign of a lack of confidence. Guys who usually land shots, after the fact, are guys who are "just happy to be there" because fear/doubt kept them from believing they would actually be there. If you were confident in yourself and "expected" the result, restraint would be much be easier to exercise.

    I wouldn't normally guess that Ngannou was afraid or full of self doubt but he did not help his case with the Lewis fight.

    If all you see is 2 guys just punching each other in the face, I guess it is...

    He will soon replace Dan Henderson as the king of the follow-up shots.

    I’m not convinced Palhares does it maliciously either. He just has the IQ of a yoghurt.

    you can't land as accurately as he does unless you intentionally want to deliver the blows. but i don't see anything wrong with him doing it either. it's like Frank Mir breaking people's limbs. the fight ain't over unless the ref is calling it or you're tapping out.

    I usually always hate guys who late shot unconscious opponents, hence why i can't stand guys like Hendo, Jeremy Stephens and Derrick Lewis, these guys have all admitted to actually knowing their opponents were unconscious when landing extra shots, Lewis said he wanted to tip Yamasaki for letting him hit Travis Browne another 3-4 times when he was already out plus back in the day he did time for assault, Jeremy Stephens beat up some young guy and put him in hospital and ended up getting himself locked up so you know he's a sadistic cunt, however with Ngannou from what I've seen and heard he seems to be a pretty good guy and I reckon he just wants to make sure he's won the fight whereas the other guys i mentioned happily admit to causing extra damage and seem to get a kick out of it

    No, it’s pretty fuckin’ stupid no matter what you see. You think Hendo wasn’t confident? Give me a break.
