surely has to be the biggest heavyweight title fight in years, is ngannou's hype justified, or will stipe's experience and wrestling be the edge. ngannou has the advantage of having fought very recently and took no damage in his KO of the year outing vs overeem, and his confidence seems on another level.

MASSIVE heabyweight fight which surely is going to be a cracker. IMO Miocic will get the job done but the power of Ngannou looks frightening

a lot of ppl I know are on miocic, I just think ngannou has an xfactor unlike anyone else at HW right now

rampage vs chael and rory vs lima on the same time in bellator also, really looking forward to seeing rory/lima will probably switch over for that. the rest of the card for ufc is pretty meh namewise

cormier vs oez looks like man vs child, cormier just another class
Report wisewords January 21, 2018 5:13 AM GMT
Cormier was very ploddish early. Someone with big power would have knocked him out in the opening 90 seconds there. DC was very impressive once he got it into a wrestling situation, smoothered Oezdemir. won easy from there.

time for the main event!
Report wisewords January 21, 2018 5:16 AM GMT
so many unknowns here. can't call it. Miococ far more experienced. Ngannou has looked brutal everytime I've seen him, but this is a legit test.
Report wisewords January 21, 2018 5:17 AM GMT
how will Ngannou fair if he's taken to the ground? I have no idea!
Report wisewords January 21, 2018 5:17 AM GMT
anyway, here we go. gonna sit back and take it all in.

Dana White looks absolutely gutted.

Stipe is seething at how the UFC have treated him.
Report wisewords January 21, 2018 6:02 AM GMT
Dana couldn't even look Stipe in the eye. Stipe took the belt from him and his coach put it on him instead.

Report razz January 25, 2018 6:00 AM GMT
so apparently it came out after the fight that ngannou didn't train any grappling at all, literally none, very dubious about his coaches who let him do that. it's just insane that in this day and age that belt contenders are doing stupid things like that.
