What was that you said about “stipe won’t win”, phagtard?
What was that you said about “stipe won’t win”, douchebaglips?
What's the question?
Didnt want to answer the question? Figures. Most people are TRUE pussys. So where are you again? HMMMMMM......LOL
You're as intimidating as the average keyboard warrior.
When you speak it's fact?
Also dont be talking all like that or we can meet up and ill fuckk you up boy. Thats right. Boy
That was an great fight. HOLY SHHIT. Good job to stipe. I wanted all of my heart for him to win. Great fight. Hey when im wrong im wrong. Also cormier showed hes an true champ. Hoping to see jones this 2018. I have jones winning that one though. I just think its so badass that he stares at these motherfuckkers and he has to look two stories up.😂😂😂😂😂😂
Where are you at, buddy?
Ok, but do any adults have a comment?
You stupid fucccck!!!!! Stipe will not win. No fucking shot. The fucckking end. And you know why cagerank lets me post, because i am cage rank mother fucka. Ngannou first round ko. EASY BOY. The fuccking end. Mcgregoray be fighting woodley then come back to 155, not quite sure yet if there put it in place.
This article was made before Ngannou fought Hamilton, Arlovsky and Overeem, that's why it wasn't included. No doubt that this is going to be a hard fight for Miocic but I think he'll pull it off (although I'm not sure enough to put money on it). Ngannou's first 8 opponents were practically nobodies (one of them was a 5'11" LHW fighting in HW division). Arlovsky and Overeem are both miles past their prime. Arlovsky had been KO'd 9 times before N fought him and Overeem was KO'd 13 times before their fight. Also, while Ngannou's KO's are impressive Stipe has KO rate (76% vs 64%).
And shut your trap, about that shit$$$. You dnt knw about money. And when ngannou kos him stiff, bow down to my greatness.
Id cut your throat open BOY. U IN SPOKANE? They never do listen, fucking retards. When i speak, its fucking fact boy. Thats why mcgregor is going to fucking annialate khabib and tony. Khabib quicker to get ko'd. I am the greatest.
shut up, a$$hole troll. grown-ups are talking.
Its not thats its an TOUGH gight for him, its that stipe wont win. THE END. When i say something, you all best listen. Thats only because when i say something, then it FUCKING happens!!!!!!
Hey dickkkweed, ngannou wins no matter what. Bigman is back ladies and gentlemen.
No doubt Stipe is legit, I just think this is a tough fight for him
Nobody else punched that bag.. Miocic knocked overeem in round 1 of their fight.
huh? Francis Ngannou has "average" knockout ability?? He has the hardest punch ever measure by science. And Ngannou KOd Alistair Overeem with a punch so hard it rocked his head back and he fell back like a sack of potatos with his head bouncing off the mat. I think this is a touch match up for Stipe. He eventually KOd Alistair, but only after being rocked himself, and he took multiple strikes from GNP before putting Alistair out. Clearly Ngannou has the greater KO power.
