That’s the first thing he said about the Stipe vs Nganou fight.

 

”He took off the last two weeks before the fight to go to France - nobody knows why.”

LOL at how every time Dana hypes up someone as the greatest thing ever then immediately shits on them when they let him down.

I made a duplicate thread about this. I didn't see this one.

I have no idea why these would be the first words out of Dana's mouth about this fight..... It hurts both guys....

"No Vacation Francis" is unbeatable.

Stipe made history and dominated the fight In every area. First HW Champ with THREE (3) defense wins and it’s huge leverage for him. Congrats to Stipe, Dana needs to build and promote him like he did Connor because he’s proved he’s the MAN!

Well there was this remark which I thought was disturbing at the time:

 

 

I don't see that changing the outcome of the fight one bit though.  Ngannou blew his load early in the same way McGregor did vs Nate throwing a bunch of power shots that only hit air.

Francis didnt follow the gameplan, much like Chuck wasnt able to in the 2003 (IIRC?) pride tourney...

Even if he had those two weeks, he would've lost. He could've had an extra month of training and it wouldn't have meant shit.
Stipe should bring up that he has a job and a family, so it kinda evens out

I’m not a Dana hater like the other 95% of UG’ers, though I think he’s been out of line on more occassions. Not giving Stipe his props and due respect for what he accomplished with this dominant victory and instead making excuses for Francis was despicable m.

Its simple. He went to France so Dana would have excuses if he were to lose.

So it was the two weeks in France that made him a shitty grappler?

Francis mentioned the trip to Paris on one of the Embedded episodes. Someone asked what he did there and he replied "Training".

Dana is mad that a full time Fireman and part time fighter is walking through his top tier full time fighters.
