This fight will be incredible!!! I'm leaning Rozenstruik.

Assuncao gets to knock out garbrant next. No love getting no love.

Tough, tough fight to pick. Whoever lands first I guess. I lean Rozenstruik because Ngannou is leakier than politics.

Rozenstruik is the better fighter overall IMO. Definitely a much better striker. Ngannou isn't good really....he's just a hulkbeats with ridonkulous power and reach. Rozenstruik will have to be wary of those uppercuts that come in from 6 feet away though...overeem caught him with a couple of good ones and if Francis lands one of his he'll get deaded fast.

I'm not so sure cause Rozenstruik took overeem shots easily

Edit: yes I realize taking an Nganou shot is significantly different then an overeem shot

Assunção vs. Garbrandt
Cody Garbrandt, DEC
At this point I may be dumb for still sticking with Garbrandt, but I actually feel like this is a fairly good match up for him. Assuncao isn't super aggressive and if Cody can actually put on a semi- competent game plan,I can see him taking this one.

I know that kid has cancer or whatever, but Cody is a little weird with him. Like I remember in some video somewhere Cody and that kid said "love you" to each other, like he was his parent or something. Really odd...

Nah, it was some kinda last wish program or maybe Cody was a friend of the parents. His heart is definitely in the right place but I get what u mean. 
It's kinda weird. 
like Jon Jones praising Jesus.

I'm not saying that there is anything malicious about Cody's relationship with this kid, just that maybe cody isn't bright enough to know what's weird and what's not

@TWJake I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way. I skip almost every Garbrandt interview at this point because I can't handle the cringe that is occasionally mixed in there

Garbrandts are entertaining for all the wrong reasons...
