Ngannou being as timid as he was made no sense, especially in the third after coaches told him he's probably behind 2 rounds. The issue is definitely mental with him, he was afraid of making a mistake and getting KO'd, his air of invincibility is gone.

His technique was very limited before, nothing changed in that regard.

Hall definitely has the tools to be a great fighter, even if he obviously started to wilt away in the second and subsequently got erased. Not really a shame to lose to Costa, guy definitely looks like a top 5 MW. I am curious to see if he is going to move to LHW eventually since he talked about fighting at 205 in a recent interview. I think MW is good for him right now.

anyway know any specific chin training exercises? head kicks to the temple is lights out for everyone unless you have a ridiculously large head like miocic, jones or cormier.
Not saying do this, but I have seen high level guys train like this but too lazy to look for their training videos at the moment.

Lewis - just a big guy physically. Doesn't really have a good grasp of grappling IMO. Against a decent grappler he will be outclassed and clueless.

Ngannou - explosive guy capable of knocking out grapplers. I see him as a bigger Rameu Thierry Sokoudjou. Probably will have a better career than him but similar skill set. He will always be dangerous and can KO someone, but if you fight smart he will fold. IMO, I don't really see him making a serious title run with his skill set.

Overall, I am disappointed that such one dimensional fighters can advance so far in the UFC HW division.

It's not just last fight though. Every time Hall lost he's looked lackluster to me.

Fantastic by DC, I'm so happy for him. I thought Miocic was gonna win this but he look awkward during the fight.

I loved the part with Lesnar, it was obviously staged but performed well. Let DC make some money on Lesnar before he retires.

Probably another KO/TKO win, then DC can retire.

Jones will come back and lose against Lesnar at HW and everyone will still remember DC as goat.

DC and Jones will both murder Brock.

But it's a shame that they're gonna water down the HW-division with that gorilla, should have set up a re-match instead.

Romeros manager Malki Kawa just told on Ariel Helwanis MMA show that the move is offical but they haven't signed a fight yet.
Interesting move. In MW he would most likely need to win at least another fight to get a title shot as long as Bobby is still champ.

In LHW seeing as the division is starved for talent, he could get a immediate title shot against Cormier.

DC wants to fight Shogun for his last LHW fight, so no DC fight for Romero I guess.

Makes sense for Romero to move up after that judging shitshow, no way they'll give him that third match anytime soon.

if shogun wins his next match and gustaf loses to volkan, it's the fight that makes sense.

Shogun is ranked 8 and slated to fight a non ranked fighter. Sure, I wouldn't give Alex a shot after losing(again ) but I think Latifi is a better candidate to get the fight and it would be interesting to see two burly and powerful wrestlers go at it.

Also the winner of Glover vs OSP have a better argument too imo. Shogun got a bit fucked by the UFC moving Volkan to fight Alex, because if he beat Volkan he could've had a argument to be made. Right now fighting a non ranked fighter? Nah.

the LHW division is a joke, im only saying shogun because he would be on a 4 match winning streak if he wins

shogun, glover, OSP, latifi..doesn't matter tbh, DC smokes all of them.

alex should beat volkan, but I really don't want him to get the shot because he's obnoxious and super whiny, so forza volkan.

he's 2-2 in his last 4, has only fought 4 times in 3.5 years. STFU and stop acting like the world owes you everything.

btw, the best thing that could happen to the LHW division is rockhold and romero moving up, this division is in drastic need of top talent.

dc beats everybody man. stylistically only overeem is his toughest matchup. But he has a glass jaw so DC ko's him easy imo.

I want to know who wins between cain and dc. sparring doesnt count. DC imo has the chin and endurance plus the dirty boxing to beat cain. those 2 are the greatest hws ever.

It would be a 4 fight streak over weak competition though, gotta factor that in.

I am almost certain that Alex will beat Volkan on accounts of his wrestling. He's not DC but he did well against DC wrestling whereas Volkan got completely dominated.

Alex is an entitled and whiny bitch but he definitely is the best candidate to give DC a though fight out of those fighters that are eligible to fight him at the moment.

Who knows - Jones manager claimed he's going to get reinstated this month, so maybe we get the trilogy? DC claimed that he wouldn't turn that fight down in the past.

Overeem has been doing very questionable stuff in his past fights. I think not only is he too chinny at this point but also mentally gone. Not in a CTE way but he just seems to tentative and anxious during the last two fights especially and makes silly mistakes.

Prime healthy Cain vs DC would be amazing to watch and I think I'd edge it towards Cain. I feel that while DC is the better wrestler, Cain seems to have a wider game and has more options. But it'll never happen and not just because of their friendship.
