yes or no?
No. Stipe would survive his early onslaught like he did Ngannou, and break him.
No, Stipe has way more heart and has fought bigger punchers.
Rumble loses alot of speed when fighting at HW.
Hell no. There's a reason Rumble ended his career as a LHW
In what playing one on one basketball? If you are talking about fighting don't be a clown.......
Rumble broke Arlovski's jaw and still couldn't finish him, Stipe breaks him down.
Looking for a comment like this and wasn't disappointed haha. If Rumble doesn't kill him in the first 2 rounds, he gets picked apart heading into the Championship rounds.
couldn't he go in as he would a LHW...and retain speed against Stipe?
Rumble is one of the most overrated fighter ever. Stipe ko him in the second round
Stipe breaks down and finishes rumble rather easily imo. Rumbles power didnt and will not transfer to HW. Stipe is superior all around. Fight wouldn't be close.
He could sure, but Stipe has only been KO'd/TKO'd twice his entire career in the HW division.
That extra speed would come at a serious cost, the smaller Rumble comes in, the more devastating Stipe's strikes and grappling would be.
Seems like a really bad matchup for Rumble.
Hell no. Rumble doesnt hit as hard as the hardest hitting HWs (Francis, Hunto, JDS, etc). Rumble got lucky with the clock mismanagement or else Andrei wouldve been up 1-0 and not have had the jaw injury most likely.
Most of that fight against a washed up Andrei, Rumble was panic wrestling and humping his legs against the cage
Stipe by TKO in the 2nd
In a 3 round fight he could maaaaaaaaaybe win a 2-1 decision but even then.
Rumble has big power at LHW, he's a dime a dozen at HW. Zero heart.
One dimensional fighter against a true martial artist and GOAT HW. Hmmm I dont know let me think.
I actually like Rumble's chances. Styles make fights. Sure, DC's wrestling is too much for Rumble, but Phil Davis' and Ryan Bader's isn't. Stipe is closer to the last two than DC in wrestling ability. Rumble isn't Ngannou, he won't dump the entire gas tank whiffing at air. He's methodical and precise.
But then again, who knows how Rumble would do in a 5 round fight. He can do a 3 round striking battle with ease but we've never seen him in the championship rounds.
Separate names with a comma.
