    Ngannou says that he's back and that 2018 was a learning process for him and that he's learned more as a fighter than in any other year.

    lol Ngannou has to get meaner. Pound that dude as soon as he hits the ground. Blaydes wasn't all that hurt. The punch didn't even hit Blaydes' head.

    Ngannou says JDS owes him a fight. also said he'd like to fight Volkov and finally a shot at redemption against Miocic.

    I thought for a moment that Blaydes was going to be let off the hook again after being hurt badly. It was just too early for him to recover though.

    Ngannou smokes Lewis if he actually shows up motivated, takes the initiative and throws shots with intent.

    Based on performances like this one I'd agree with you but when the two were face to face Lewis controlled him quite easily.

    Almost every round was a borderline 10-10. Both guys did **** all. Lewis might have shown a tad bit more initiative and that's why he got the decision but it wasn't a good effort.

    The way Francis fought you didn't need a good effort to beat him.

    Lewis would probably be the underdog in a rematch, but the point is Francis has already had the opportunity to beat him, and failed.

    I don't think there was a clear winner. I know most had Lewis winning and I don't have a problem with that but I personally had it a draw. It was an utter crap fight and the real losers were us fans. And yeah Ngannou on form almost certainly wins.

    It's the worst fight I've seen since Shamrock Vs Severn.

    Almost certainly is a bit strong, as I said he had his chance already.

    Anyways it looks like Reem Vs Francis 2.

    When his mind is right Francis can beat anyone , his power is amazing and he has learned to throw the one two , left and the big right coming immediately after. He caught Blaydes coming in with a short left on the chin and then he threw the right with didn't appear to land , just the short almost jab like left he stuck out there at the same time Blaydes was coming forward was enough to scramble Blaydes brain , it didn't appear that hard of a punch but we are talking Francis N'gannou .

    I hope someone has figured out how to get N'gannou's head in the right place to make him fully confident and have faith in himself ... just goes to show you that one can have all the physical attributes in the world but without the right attitude you can end up beating yourself .

    I'd rather see Ngannou rematch Miocic than rematch Lewis. That was a stinker of a fight, where both guys were gun shy. No need to give them a chance to do that again.

    Tbf, Miocic vs Ngannou wasn't all that fun either. It was a good fight to watch live because it looked like Ngannou could take Miocic out at any point, but it has little replay value.
    Miocic - Lewis and Ngannou - JDS is where it's at.

    I don't mind this. But how long will it take before Lewis is able to fight again? He's had 2 rough fights within a month span. Miocic is ready to go but the you UFC seem like they want to shelve him.
