    He says Ngannous is a natural 265lber cutting a little or no weight to make 265lbs, is mostly muscle. Important note Francis did weigh in the high 250s before as I recall


    Anyone know what is the lightest Francis ever weighed?


    Id say be 6"6, with 86 inch reach. Francis could be taller, 6"4 is still in the range of average for a HW

    But is he an "enormous specimen of a man" like Ciryl Gane is?

    Gane is 6"5, with slightly smaller reach (81 inch vs 83.5 of Ngannou) and weighs 20lbs less he weighs what 245lbs to 249lbs?

    Brock should come back and take the title from Ngannou, it will be like the hunt fight.

    Taller means less muscle mass to make weight or who knows if he could maintain his speed being even bigger and cutting to make 265, DC was the champ at HW being basically an overweight LHW, a lot shorter than Ngannou.

    HW lacks some high level grapplers. Well it just lacks high level anything at this point. It's mostly just a bunch of slow and fat old dudes at this point.

    The era of small HW is over. And DC is the exception not the normal
    Brock was never an elite fighter. He would get wrecked

    You are calling a UFC HW champ with 2 title defences not "elite"? is everything alright with you? Brock is more elite than ngannou could ever be.

    Ngannou is like a one cylinder Ford… the gas tank is just not there. Far from an elite athlete.

    Another hyperbolic description about one of UFC's rising stars and current heavyweight champion from Joe.

    Lol you have no clue what you’re talking about, Brock is 10x the Athlete a sloppy windmiller like Ngannou is. Brock was a freak even by NFL standards.


    Ngannou just happens to compete during the worst generation of HW’s in the sports history. Imagine Curtis Blaydes being the “gold standard” of grappling during your era LOL

    No he is not. And the competition was weaker back then and brock tested for roids

    Brock coulsnt make the NFL and tested positive for banned subtances thus cheating and was arrested in College for banned subtances his body was built on drugs. To favor Brock who is afraid to get hit, cant handle pain and sat down and got beat by Overeem is delusion or maybe just racism projection to downplay the 1st African champion and to favor a big white man over a black one.

    Would be great but Brock knows he probably lose and lose bad lol even tho he has chance with wrasstling if he can get ngannou tiredness he would have to trick Francis which I don't see happening I see Ngannou uppcutting him to hellllllllll

    Better nervous system (which is physical), allowing him to be more coordinated. Imagine his power with the coordination of say Muhammad Ali, or Mike Tyson.

    Build wise he's about as great you can be within the 265 limit

    I think lot of aspects of him are overrated, including his power, but honestly his build is phenomenal... height, reach, he's not clumsy, move fluid and he's strong af with vey good power
