He shouldn't be cut..... but he got embarrassed his last 2 fights, one of which was a pretty big PPV. He belongs on a Fight Night spot and not on another big PPV.  There currently is no hype around Hardy and they are trying to create some by giving him a PPV against a 45 year old.

Morning Report: Ciryl Gane not worried about Francis Ngannou’s power in their title fight: ‘This is not scaring me’


Ok girls think I just figured this out Gane is gonna rope a dope Fran?$%!
He is fast enough and Fran will gas eventually holy **** phantom punch time.
On the other hand maybe Gane being so good gave him a big head..

Striker vs wrestler - its so tight but I'd go with the wrestler. Mind you Cannonier hits like a truck, I hope he knocks Brunson on his ass.

I was talking about Mosvar vs Ilia dumbass, if you test the emperor again you might not like the outcome.

Yeah, I just can't pick a guy who struggles to finish top-tier competition like Gane against a one-puncher like Ngannou.

Francis N'Gannou   vs.   Ciryl Gane 
Ngannou, KO/TKO R1-2.

It's incredible to me that the majority think that a pretty meat n' potatoes kickboxer is going to survive ngannou, who fights out of a Boxing stance which is perfect to counter Muay Thaiand who hurls death at lightspeed from every angle and dimension in a metatron cube. He's literally destroyed every single fighter who fits that description effortlessly every time.

5/5 of his last wins have come by KO. 4/5 have been in the first round. Those scalps include Miocic, the heavyweight with probably the best MMA-adapted Boxing in UFC, and Rozenstruik--who incidentally isn't much different than Gane stylistically anyway. 

He has never been KO'ed, has lost by decision three times (one being by wrestle******y, the other being inactivity, the other in the infancy of his career) and looks better every time he gets in the cage.

Anyway, I hope the majority delusion continues because I intend to bet the absolute Bejeesus out of him. But it is puzzling. I think this wise Guru, in this 30 second clip, makes an excellent point about Democracy--which is what Tapology is after a fashion (a majority vote) which is pertinent here, and provides an elegant and succinct explanation as to why 60% of the Tap community is picking Gane.
