    It's a what have you done for me lately kind of thing. People JUST saw Ngannou MDK Overeem. Stipe hasn't fought since beating an over the hill JDS back in May. He'll get the chance to remind mother fuckers in January.

    You can see how much confidence Stipe has when he fights since he has become Champ. The guy looks better and better every time I see him fight. You would have to be a fool to overlook him. If I was a betting man, with Stipe as the underdog, I'd bet on Stipe all day long.

    Stipe has no chance..not because he can't beat Ngannou but no one will ever defend the HW title three times. Curse!!

    Man, I just watched that fight (crazy behind on cards). My first reaction was that it looked sloppier than I expected given people's talk. But the replay showed me that Ngannou, if a bit wild (same for the shot he landed against AA), actually has his eyes open wide and is completely aware the whole time. Very impressive.

    That said, Overeem was surprisingly aggressive for a guy with a weak chin fighting a wrecking machine. I was expecting to see him fight more like he did against JDS in this fight. Not sure what to make of it or what to expect out of Ngannou against an elite, but patient, HW. Can't wait to see him fight Stipe!!

    Sound and effective strategy, IMO.

    Will Stipe break the Heavyweight Champion curse and successfully defend his title for a third straight time?

    Stipe Miocic says Alistair Overeem got ‘sloppy’ against Francis Ngannou: ‘I’m not going to be stupid’

    Stipe has the boxing skills to deal with such a power puncher

    Im not sure how strong Stipes ground game is, but hes one of the best technical boxers in the HW division


    not sure who takes it, but Id be surprised if it goes the distance

    I like Stipe and think he is skilled as hell but will need to play the long game, keeping it real smart and light on his feet for this one.

    Francis is a beast. 6-0 in the UFC with 6 ko finishes is impressive as fuck.

    thats why Im a bit worried

    if Stipe can test Francis' gas tank he might cruise to a decision

    but I think Stipe catches him in rd 3 or 4 and ends it

    With that said, I want Stipe to win. UFC cheering for the guy getting the extra push and support by the UFC.

    Just dont tell Francis I said that :leaving:

    Stipe might be my favorite HW ever. Hope he breaks the record.

    especially when you consider the longest title run anyone has had is like 2 or 3 defenses in the hw div
