    I’ve got a funny feeling Stipe will win this weekend.

    Either way I hope it lasts a while to see how Ngannou’s gas tank is.

    I fancy Ngannou to put anyone to sleep at this point.

    Absolute monster.

    Stipe for me, my gut feeling is the UFC are trying to monster push their next star and Ngannou has everything. Just feels too quick.

    His back story is more marketable than anything on the roster when married with the fact he’s a bear with 2 anvils swinging from his arms.

    If he does win though he will sky rocket.

    He’s getting banter now as well with the folk asking if he can play centre half :56::56::56:

    Some weekend of MMA this weekend.

    Buzzing for it :party048:


    Also, Stipe’s embeddeds are just as good as his fights. Must do his wife’s * nut in :56:

    Always found it strange they never properly marketed Stipe as the baddest man on the planet, he has bags of charisma. Just doesn’t fit the Lesnar, Ngannou type prototype for a super heavyweight.

    Possibly scared of losing, if he loses against him there then he can get the big Dublin re-match?

    If McGregor wants to fight in Russia and there was a time it sounded like he did, then that’s where the money was to be made at that particular time.

    Especially in America. Son of immigrants, a fireman etc. His embeddeds are always gold with him and his wife. He’s just a big kid.

    Think if he wins this weekend he’s the most successful heavyweight champ ever aswell.

    McGregor specifically said he wanted to fight Khabib in Russia a while ago.

    Never mind this weekend, overall I think Stipe must be one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC.
