Let’s not forget Stipe lost to DC. Stipe only defended his belt like five times to my 15. The man showed up at 230 to fight against Francis. He is no Jon Jones, I want this fight, excited to see what the UFC think it’s worth
🇫🇷 FLASH - Le combattant franco-camerounais Francis #Ngannou est devenu cette nuit le nouveau champion du monde poids-lourds de l’#UFC, après avoir infligé un KO à l’américain Stipe #Miocic. (UFC) #UFC260
Francis uses the double jab to close the distance, then change level jab to the body to set up the right hook upstairs, collides with Stipe and immediately separates, exits safely with a check hook and resets.
This is good.
Francis Ngannou vs. Jon Jones will be the biggest fight the heavyweight division has seen since Brock Lesnar retired.
That said, it kills me Stipe Miocic is already being forgotten. He's 1-1 with Francis now, a third fight should happen at some point down the road.
Bro I’ve gotten out of the way from much faster punchers. And I have a pretty solid chin. Let’s not forget fight IQ, reach, speed, distance. I’m not going to just stand there like stipe did. https://t.co/szqyJMtUjA

🇨🇲 Cameroonian-French Francis Ngannou avenges his 2018 loss to Stipe Miocic by knocking him out in the 2nd round with a VICIOUS left!
A gentle giant with an amazing life story.
The baddest man on the planet!!!
@chunguskhan03@SnackMuay Tbh as someone who wrote an article on Herb Dean's worst reffing moments I'd have to say his stoppage of Stipe vs Ngannou wasnt particularly bad. It was laughable how bad his positioning was since it was clear the fight was moments from being over but it's no rockhold weidman
