******** booking. They are clearly looking to get the Ngannou Hype train back on the rails. Hope Blaydes takes him down and hellbows him to death.

Really? I feel like the UFC are looking to bury N'Gannou. Their first encounter was Blaydes' UFC debut. He's riding high right now. I think the UFC think they can make Blaydes a bigger draw if they can have him avenge his only loss prior to fighting for the belt. If you're ever going to fight N'Gannou, now's the perfect time. You don't want to fight him down the road after he's knocked out a couple HW scrubs and has his confidence back.

Blaydes has had 6 UFC fights, he's 5-1, and N'Gannou was his debut fight while N'Gannou is 6-2 in 8 UFC fights and the Blaydes fight was his 2nd. They're both still new enough that there are plenty of other matchups to make and a Blaydes win/N'Gannou loss will be muted because they'd still be 1-1 and if N'Gannou wins it destroys any momentum Curtis has and doesn't really do much for Francis.

I was very impressed with Yan in her debut.

It sucks N’Gannou is on a slide, I feel like he could’ve been a good person to help the UFC break into Africa. They’ve got a few African fighters under contract now, and EFC cards seem to do pretty well.

If they were trying to get him back on track, Imp, they wouldn't have given him Blaydes. I mean, pretty much everyone seems to think that Francis will have nothing for wrestlers after the Stipe fight.

I personally think that Ngannou will come out victorious again, but only if he actually pulls the trigger.
