    I watched this. man stipe is a likable guy. he doesn't seem like a prick at all. just a dude you could sit and have a beer with.

    he also oddly doesn't even seem concerned, or am i taking it wrong? that's some serious confidence to feel that way and have no need to run your mouth.

    I agree Stipe seems like such a cool laid back guy, the whole show with Rogan was pretty fucking cool

    but I dont thinks its over-confidence or anything like that, but Im sure quite a few people told him Werdum, Reem and JDS would all beat him


    Im sure quite a few of the hard core fans knew he could stop JDS after the Reem fight, but Id bet quite a few people wrote him off

    Id bet Stipe is at that point where he knows if he doesnt get too worked up and just sticks to the game plan he has a better shot than most realize


    and yes Francis is a different beast altogether, but after Stipe stopped Hunt I think he understood he has what it takes to deal with an incredibly powerful and technical striker

    I dont know if Hunt or Francis hits harder but Id bet Hunt was more technical, and thats giving Stipe the confidence he needs

    i don't know either but what I do know is i underestimated stipe. i figured he'd probably defend against alistar but honestly i didn't expect him to beat JDS. i'm done counting that guy out. I wasn't even sure he'd beat reem.

    It's not that i thought he was ever weak, i just thought JDS would be too much. I can't help but think the same thing against Ngannou but i'm done being sure of anything.

    Truth is, all these guys are one good crack from the canvas anyway, that's why the record defenses is what? 3?

    Only 2. Stipe has the chance to make history against Ngannou by making it 3!!

    Thought this new poster had a really dope vibe and style and really has a "clash of destroyers" theme...but it also kinda looks like they've scrapped the DC/Volkan co-main in the process and turfed it by the freeway en route to all the carnage lol.[​IMG]

    Didn’t think much of Miocic but he’s impressed me with much improvement. I think he’ll be the smarter fighter. Haven’t watched the other guy so January will tell me.

    I said the same thing about Overeem not looking good at all. Threw some wild punches and dumb head movement. Wasn't the smart strategic Overeem that fought jds or Hunt.

    I like Ngannou but I'm pulling for Stipe to win and hopefully in brutal fashion like he Caught Werdum running after him or vicious ground and pound like he did Hunt.
