Re: Francis Ngannou: "I Want Brock Lesnar After I Beat Stipe"
Everyone ITT totally writing off Brock. I completely disagree. Francis' skill level as a mixed martial artist is average at best. He's been on this savage run because he's a physical freak with no equal in the current UFC HW division. In terms of physical gifts, Brock equals N'Gannou and maybe even surpasses him. Not that Brock is the most rounded fighter in the game, but I can't imagine Francis stopping that double leg.
Francis is the hot thing right now but let's not pretend he'd definitely steamroll Lesnar. This stuff about Brock having a "glass jaw" is total nonsense. Could N'Gannou KO him? Of course. But Carwin couldn't get it done and I'm not entirely convinced that Francis hits any harder than Shane.
