Everybody loves to say that Stipe only beat Francis because everything came together, implying he was lucky to win. No, he won because he put everything together. Stipe will prove why hes the HW Goat

As I believed when it came to Zombie fight, I also believe now. Ortega takes it by decision with a very tough fight. Later this year Holloway vs.Ortega, to me - definitely top 3 interesting fights to make this year.

Miocic vs. N'Gannou II
Stipe Miocic, TKO, R4
Francis is a damn MONSTER!!! He could easily Knock Stipe out before he knows what's happening with that I believe it's a strong possibility and high probability this happens BUT Stipe IS NOT only a great fighter BUT A Legendary Fighter, He weathered the Storm once before but can he do it again? Seems unlikely with the boogie man as your opponent. One shot and it's over, Stipe cannot make any mistakes in this one bc Francis is hungry and he wants the title more than any heavyweight out there. 50/50 fight in my opinion... We'll see when this comes

Volkanovski vs. Ortega
Alexander Volkanovski, DEC
Volkanovski is Good to say the least, Ortega is looking good too. Will be one of the ones to look out for. May be fight of the night

Walker vs. Crute
Jimmy Crute, SUB, R1
Mr. Johnny Walker needs a win pretty bad about now. He's a young talent who if he had the right people behind him no telling where he can go but he definitely needs to improve his defense to become really good

Miocic vs. N'Gannou II
Francis N'Gannou, TKO, R3
As long as Ngannou gets out of fence stifling, he’s got this.

Volkanovski vs. Ortega
Alexander Volkanovski, DEC
Ortega isn’t champ caliber yet. He needs a rematch with Max or something before fighting Volkanovski.

Walker vs. Crute
Jimmy Crute, TKO, R2
I know Walker beat the one guy that beat Crute, but he’s past prime, walkoff KO for Crute, one more fight and Walker’s gone.

Bukauskas vs. Oleksiejczuk
Michał Oleksiejczuk, TKO, R1
Bukauskus with a bad loss to Jimmy Crute, I know Michał also lost to Crute but he’s just the better fighter and Modestas is a glass jaw.

Miocic vs. N'Gannou II
Stipe Miocic, DEC
Unless Ngannou improved his grappling skills, it's probably more of the same. Stipe still runs a risk of getting KO'd, especially after the wars with DC and in the first Ngannou fight he did kind of welcome a bit of a slug fest. Hopefully he keeps a level head and just sticks to his superior fight IQ.

Volkanovski vs. Ortega
Brian Ortega, SUB, R4
I think Volkanovski is a more complete fighter, better all around, but every time I've thought about this fight I see Ortega pulling out a submission. He's shown he's willing to just literally jump on the neck if he thinks he'll get it, and Alex being so much shorter I think gives him the risk of getting caught randomly. Ortega brings like a RNG factor into fights, he's won something like 5 fights in a row that he was legitimately losing...

Miocic did not use is grappling in is 3 DC figh so since 3 years. At is age he may have slow down a lot. We will see but I think he can grind Ngannou out for 5 rounds again.

As someone who could be described as a woodley hater, I consider this to be a very winnable fight for him. The thing that his last 3 opponents have in common is that they were able to gas him with lots of grappling, which I am not comfortable thinking Luque can do. That being said, I hope and believe that Luque will take this

Considering what made Ortega look so good was Zombie just standing right in front of him, and Volkanovski is a perpetual motion machine who will be leg kicking and volume punching all night, I don't think there's any MMA math between those two fights.
