I think so as well. On paper, Blaydes has all the tools to make Ngannou's night fucking miserable. And now Stipe has revealed the blueprint. It'll be easier said than done of course, if Ngannou were to start off going at Blaydes like he did Miocic early then I'm not sure Blaydes gets through it like Stipe did. But I'm not sure that Ngannou exists anymore either. That loss to Stipe seems to have sapped his confidence to let loose more than anything. And the Lewis fight, which should'veĀ been a good style opponent for Ngannou inĀ a bounce back fight, must've only added to him losingĀ confidence.Ā If he's hesitant here I see Blaydes taking him down repeatedly and making a mess of him. We'll see but he's got to make something happen soon before the rot really sets in.Ā

Dana basically said after the Lewis fight that Ngannou has turned into a half-arseing lazy bastard because his ego got the best of him after destroying Reem.

If he's not doing the work and grinding at the gym then he's got no chance. Particularly if he's terrified of getting drowned like Stipe managed.

Is there any hint of what the MSG headliner is? I haven't been following much so i'm clueless.Ā 

Rogan seemed excited about it, whatever it is.

Rockhold vs Weidman 2 has been confirmed for the card. That serves as a cracking co-main-event.Ā 

Personally, I would like Jones vs Gusty 2 to headline. If not, then Jones vs Miocic.Ā

CM Punk said to Helwani heĀ wants to continue fighting, just not in the UFC.

His persistenceĀ is to be admired, I guess, because the UFC went proper low and he still got battered. I suppose there is at least a pay day or two from Bellator to be had.

He should goto Japan. They would find someone he could beat. It would probably be the Nissin cup noodle man or something but he could get a W then hopefully retire from this midlife crisis.

I watched the interview and I took that part as total lip service. It was a question he knew was coming and needed an answer for without losing any face. He also said that if he fights again, it would be before the end of the year, which seems unthinkable. Can't see him ever doing it again which is definitely for the best.Ā 

He was so vague about everything too. Constantly spouted the 'I have stuff going on that I can't talk about' line.Ā 

Doesn't look like he has any intention of wrestling either.Ā

Long shot here and especially after the last fiasco but can anybody see D.C/Lesnar being brought forward for MSG. Ufc basically coming out and saying we needed a main event andĀ they've made a deal with VADA, Strigent drug testing etc.

As much as I wanna see that, it isn't the mega fight we are all anticipating.
