  1. I like both fighters but I want Francis to win because a loss would affect his career more. Dana spent a lot of time and effort promoting Ngannou before the Stipe fight and was pissed that he lost. After the Lewis fight Dana was still pissed at Francis. Curtis is still under the radar when it comes to casuals so a loss for him won't affect Dana's plans as much. That's how I see it anyway.

  2. The way I see it, this is Francis' fight to lose. Curtis is a strong wrestler, but make no mistake about it, it takes more than a double leg to defeat Francis. Stipe was able to strip Ngannou's confidence because he could mix up the striking, somewhat similar to what Cain did to JDS.

    Curtis paws his way in, but he's known for throwing a single shot at a time. That's exactly why he was losing the last fight with Francis, single jab or unmasked takedown events got his eye shut. Francis admitted Stipe took his confidence away. There's no better confidence booster than a rematch with a fighter you defended the takedown against and defeated.

  3. Bad matchup for Blaydes… His brute force won't be enough this time. Ok so Ngannou didn't show up vs Lewis, but he clearly dominated Blaydes in the first fight.
    Also, some fighters are more prone to eye injuries and it could well happen again. Blaydes is awesome, but Ngannou knows how to beat him and has done it not too long ago. Also his punches are unorthodox and difficult to train for. I think it goes the same way as last time.
