Arlovski's speed could present challenges, but Francis is on the way up ... and that power.

Arlovky is a better, more complete fighter, but style make fight and thats a perfect match up for N'Gannou, like Rodrigues knocking Penn

If Arlovski trades in the pocket with N'Gannou I think he drops. And to be honest, at this point I don't think Arlovski can help it.

This is a tough fight for Arlovski after dropping three in a row, all with finishes. I'll be bummed when (presumably) gets finished an cut. :(

This is a sad mismatch.


Arlovski was a great fighter, and it was cool to saw him come back in the UFC for an improbable run (wich gave us two unforgettable violent battles with Browne and Barnett), and he can still land a power shot, but his chin is gone now, he is just pure heart and swing.
Ngannou is still a bit raw, and didn't faced anyone of Arlovki's calliber yet, but is arguably the strongest man in the UFC right know.
I pick Ngannou by ridiculous savagery.

They should've done Struve vs Arlovski instead of sending both of them to their deaths.

This card is loaded. Actually like this card a little better than 208. Maybe it's because this one is free. Idk. With that being said, man what a murderer's row andrei has faced. Current champ, then title challenger, then former champ. After all that, he gets arguably the best hw prospect in the ufc. Aside from the recent title challengers/champs, I can't think of another guy at hw with a tougher 4 fight stretch. Crazy to think that at this time last year, andrei was legitimately being considered for a title shot. Just goes to show how small the margin of error is at hw. 

Imo what andrei did during his resurgence was almost as impressive as what robbie lawler was able to do. A guy who was written off to fight his way to a point where he was 1 win away from a title shot cements him as one of the greatest hw mixed martial artists. I gotta think that with a loss here (especially a finish)  andrei will consider retirement. But I wont write him off quite yet. I learned that from his last run.

not trying to be prick but Arlov would be fine addition to Bellator / Rizin partnerships not sure how the $$ would work but in Japan he can let loose with "supplements"

Not buying into N'Gannou yet. He's big and strong and Arlovski is a sucker for a pocket-brawl. That said, Arlovski is faster, technically superior, WAY more experienced.

If he can stay away from trying to go tid-for-tad with N'Gannou I think he beats him. That's a big "if" because Arlovski gets pulled into fire fights way too easily, but I'm going to hope Greg Jackson manages to reel him in a bit.

I am rooting for my boy Ngannou. First "big" test but i am pretty sure he will impress us as always. He's improving a lot every single fight and he's not just about strenght (even if he's a natural phenom).

I saw his lasts training that are impressive.. working a lot on his ground game and transition TD to increase his tools (as we saw against Hamilton).

Arlovski's chin is really "suspect" and i don't know how he can win this fight. I really can't see him finish Ngannou.. even if he hasn't really been tested hard yet.. maybe by decision but really curious to see his gameplan coming for this fight because trading with Ngannou is suicide.. maybe "in'n'out".. he will have to deal with hard pressure and 1 punch knockout threat..

Anyway, Go Predatoooor !!!
