    Let's pump the brakes on comparing him to a multi-medalist. Give him Struve or Magomedov first and then we'll talk. Maybe Lewis or Roy but that may be a big step up from his previous competition.

    In that case, no, Francis will not be the Teddy Riner of MMA.

    He also hates MMA and is a large black person, the reason why I assume TS made this thread.

    teddy riner is a perfect speciman. If that man wants your woman there is literally nothing you can do about it.
     
  9. Every UFC event should begin with Ngannou crushing a can.

  15. Teddy Riner = [​IMG]

    Hes just way fucking bigger, taller, heavier, stronger than everyone he competes against in judo which relies heavy on leverage which he holds a massive advantage against everyone.

    He almost certainly won't be. To put things in perspective, to be similar, he would have to win a UFC belt and then defend it for 8 years, at least. It's also going to be more difficult since he's actually older than Riner is.
