Francis Ngannou starches Stipe in the 1 round then goes on to dominate until Tai Tuivasa dethrones him. You heard it here first.

Francis is great at kicking ass. But there will come a fight where he faces some resistance. He’s super talented and may blow through everyone, but I’m not going to crown a guy who’s faced zero adversity. We haven’t seen him take a good shot. We haven’t seen him take leg kicks and we haven’t seen anyone wrestle him. I think he still has to prove he’s well rounded. 

I can tell he has a good chin just by looking at his skull.

Great post. I'm sure Rashad Couter wishes he had seen this great yet simple strategy before he fought Tai...

I'd be willing to bet that Tai's is better

The fat guy? Hahahahaha.

i love it when guys try being all unconventional by picking some random guy just in case they happen to be correct they can be “the one who knew all along”

I could see this happening. He’s been sparring Hunt, so he’s probably fine taking a big shot. 

I don't think that's how it works

DanChow - I guess you think I am just Chinese, guess again with my stupid ass last name everyone thinks so. I am predominantly Scottish..now ain't that some shit?

I told this chick in High School that I was mainly Scotch and this blonde babe says "Scotch" is a drink you are Scottish. Never forgot Andrea she was a hot number.

In terms of athletics, pure African genetics are far superior to Samoan genetics.

Bam Bam needs to tighten up his footwork and get in better shape before he lights det-cord in the Octagon with FN.

Tai is a good prospect but ultimately unproven. Good to see some potential at heavyweight though.

I can't believe that people are already counting Stipe out of that fight. Why? Because Francis just KO'd Overeem? Oh, the same guy that got brutally KO'd by Bigfoot Silva and Travis Browne???? Keep sleeping on Stipe. I want that money line nice and skewed

The only thing we can be sure of is OP’s ability to slob some heavyweight penis.

Big fan of Tuivasa's podcast The Halfcast Podcast that he does with Tyson Pedro.

It's not just his ok of Overeem..look at his clinch work with Overeem, his sprawl against Curtis Blaydes, a pretty explosive wrestler..he also made short work of Arlovski..

Styles make fights and a very big, explosive striker with massive power that is very hard to take down is a very bad matchup for Stipe..he'll, that's a bad matchup for anyone!

none of those opponents are as well rounded or tough as stipe. arlovski and overeem are past there primes and have chins that are made of butterflies and curtis blaydes is a fringe contender at best.

stipe KO'd arlovski and overeem too...but also KOd Werdum JDS and Mark Hunt.

On paper Stipe is being criminally underrated.
