    I hate when these threads pop back up the week leading up to the event. I'm always afraid somebody had to pull out with an injury

    Man I'm surprised how many people are sleeping on Overeem. He's beaten MUCH better competition recently and fought the best of the best.

    Fighting better competition doesn't always mean you'll win the fight though, I am 50/50 on this fight. Overeem is my dude, but it's HW and he's had damn near 100 fights MMA/Kickboxing etc combined already.

    Ngannou is a much bigger guy than I realized.

    Yeah that chin and Overeem just left Mark Hunt stiff on the canvas.

    Its HW, everyone's chin can be touched.

    Oh I know. But lets just look at Reems last 2 fights. He beat Werdum again and he left Mark Hunt stiff as a board. Who has Francis beat? His biggest win was AA who was on a 3 fight losing streak?

    I'm actually picking Reems, I think Ngannou is still a little wet behind the ears. I feel if Reems picks his strikes, he can gas Ngannou but this isn't a fight I'd bet on though... Ngannou hits like a truck, he's hungry, and a high level athlete vs a battle worn guy

    So who's he fighting next? A Kodiak bear? 3 midgets stacked on top of each other? Kareem Abdul Jabbar?

    Wait, Stipe is the champ. Why would he fight the #1 contender? That's not the way the ufc operates
