@swain well if I could hit as hard as a Buick going 40mph.........
 Imagine Nganou or Lewis actually knew how to fight. Neither beats stipe or DC or anyone with a brain that they don't want scrambled.

Nganou Lewis was a bunch of ********. They should be forced to fight forever until one of them is out cold.
Pay to watch two ***********ers stand around.

******* monster barely hits guys and they drop.... Nganou could become a heavyweight legend.
