    I don't seem to think anything. Would you like to discuss the various forms of grappling such as clinch work, trips, freestyle and greco wrestling, etc?

    Might be a coincidence, but that's the 3rd Condit fan rooting against Ngannou.

    Ngannou is just another animal.

    He is just naturally huge, naturally bigger than all other HWs but on top of that his stand up skills are no joke.

    Imo he is like the prime Anderson Silva of HW. If you can't out grapple him you are going to sleep.

    More submission wins than Stipe, Cain and JDS combined.

    If KOing Overeem isn't impressive because he is so easy to KO, why couldn't JDS, Werdum and Hunt do it?

    Good. You should never hop aboard hype trains but Ngannou is the best HW contender right now.

    Yeah all those 40 people Overeem has beaten should have knocked his ass out.

    If Overeem would have won we would have heard a different tune about how Ngannou was over-hyped and sucked. Overeem is the best striker alive blah blah blah.

    In an old Heavyweight division, he is legit.

    His problem will be how long he can hold up, he still looks behind the learning curve to me.

    I said this in a thread the other day, and I think it's relevant to the "Joe Rogan...Lebron" thread, but Ngannou is the guy that, had he been born in the USA, in the south particularly, I honestly think he'd be playing DE on an NFL team right now. I feel like he is that kind of athlete that is behind because of where he was born. Kind of sad, really.

    Yea people keep pinning Ngannou as a heavy striker only but I don't think that's the case. His main weapon is his striking but he has a variety of submission wins in only 12 fights. I'm not saying he's Demian Maia but give Ngannou an arm or a neck and see what happens.

    This.
    Besides losing to the champ, Overeem hadn't lost 2014 and beat Hunt, Werdum, Nelson and JDS etc.

    Also usually even if Overeem gets KO'd, he dishes out some serious damage beforehand, Browne and Stipe were almost KO'd themselves.

    I am fully behind the hype. he is for real, I expect him to become to champ.

    Ngannou obviously has huge power, but he is very accurate with his punches as well. He has very big wingspan which is the same as Jones, and he is a great athlete.

    People saying he is just a "brawler" , I have no clue where you are getting this from. Ngannou has shown a array of skills, Curtis Blaydes is a bad-ass wrestler and has very good ground control and ground 'n' pound and has only lost to Ngannou, and Ngannou showed some good TDD and also as soon as Curtis tried to grab him he got the underhooks.. which shows he knows exactly what to do. Hamilton fight he submitted him with a standing Kimura that he got from standing position!!! you have to be so strong to do that, thats really a strength submission.

    If you call Black Beast Lewis a brawler then yeah I can understand that and its fair, but Ngannou no

    Overeem was the number one contender and recently beat mark hunt and werdum, and was had the champ stipe in some trouble in their fight. How come with his glass chin those top guys couldn't finish him but ngannou could?

    Well, to be fair, Overeem used at least some of his brain in those fights.

    He certainly didnt brawl with Hunt lol


    and Werdum did drop him

    Whenever someone says they refuse to get hyped about a fighter, I always think of this
