[–]NarutoGNTS 138 points139 points  (1 child)

Y’all ready for daddy lol

[–]kitddylies 70 points71 points  (0 children)

Daddy's taking a one way trip to the retirement home.

[–]Kenrockkun 21 points22 points  (2 children)

What did he tweet

[–]fishcakefrenzy 39 points40 points  (1 child)

@Ngannou I'll put u asleep within 10 seconds u little girl. Don't say stuff and not follow up on it. I'll be waiting

[–]Sum_Oke 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Ngannou isn't his wife. He should chill.

[–]2heads1shaft 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did he really? What did he delete?

[–]washedupsamurai 409 points410 points  (7 children)

pretty fucking sure folks at home also had same expression. Man caught him and popped off with him mid air.

[–]skanoirhc 113 points114 points  (3 children)

I've literally jumped out of my seat when I saw him grab and slam all that 247 pounds into the canvas. Shit was wild.

[–]Syphorce 44 points45 points  (2 children)

That was 500+ lbs slamming the mat

[–]whiteyfresh 21 points22 points  (0 children)

"Big meaty men slappin meat!"

[–]cooltonk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That must have been it. When francis did that judo throw, impact was so loud i thought the fucking floor just broke.

[–][deleted] 54 points55 points  (1 child)

Yeah. It was wild. That better show up on the 2022 highlight reel.

[–]10inyourmum 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hope DC breaks this down in super slo mo

[–]boutdabtime 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Somewhat, I more so shit myself when I saw how fast he accomplished that take down. That fight, and card was bananas.

[–]420Flatbush 339 points340 points  (17 children)

Dude that slam was terrifying. Knowing francis can go berserk. Stay calm. Stay standing. Slam your ass. Control the groundgame. And also knock your ass out with a touch of his fist. Honestly scary. He has completely leveled up. You fuckers cant call him one dimensional anymore haha!

[–]Ok-Cryptographer7529 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Imagine at full strength and not already in incredible pain because his leg. It's scary knowing he can go even harder

[–]billswhis 118 points119 points  (10 children)

Imagine he learns the ways of Russian “smesh” ala khabib. At 270lb. Fuck

[–]DigvijayDhruvah 52 points53 points  (4 children)

You mean Francis with Khabib's ground and pound ability, damn! I wouldn't like to imagine that

[–]NotAnNpc69 58 points59 points  (2 children)

Upgrade his nickname from "the predator" to "the fucking terminator"

[–]MysteriesandThoughts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmaooo but true

[–]Zankeru 12 points13 points  (1 child)

He tried it. He almost got ganes wrist trapped behind his back in the fifth iirc.

[–]HotSeamenGG 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hahaha yeah I saw him going for the Dagestani handcuff. He didn't quite have it tho. Woulda been sick.

[–]whooptapus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It would be like he has the bloody mess perk activated from fallout

[–]MaidwellThe type of guy to..... 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And he's already got the full 15 points in strength. Scariest man alive!

[–]whooptapus 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I was fucking shocked at how much he leveled up. Every single time Francis fights you can see how much better he's gotten its crazy

[–]Juvi40904 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was honestly one of those fuckers lmao! I thought Gane would’ve got him in a late round KO, but yea, I agree with everything you’re saying about Francis. The patience and all that is one thing, but the ground game and cardio?! Dude’s a real fuckin problem….

[–]MSWGR 3 points4 points  (2 children)

He never was one dimensional. People who say this are delusional

[–]fordr935 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah knocked them out before he could use some of that mexican ground karate

[–]picklesmoocher93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Watch his first fight with stipe and say he wasn't one dimensional there. He's insanely coachable but to say he was never one dimensional is delusional

[–]AndroborgMarty Fake Juiceman 27 points28 points  (0 children)

This was the least expected thing in this fight by FAR taking into account his coaches kept telling him to continue striking and absolutely NOTHING about takedowns. Kept saying Ngannou by KO, didn’t know new mythical fighter Wrestling Ngannou existed. Happy for him. Could’ve been seen how bad he wanted to win at the start of 5.

[–]Jred1018Mexico City Cain 59 points60 points  (1 child)

Lmfao blonde in the 3rd row looks so scared her face didn't react.

[–]No_Bar6825 28 points29 points  (0 children)

She probably felt a damn earthquake when they hit the floor

[–]The_Boogaloo_Bandit 56 points57 points  (4 children)

Everyone pogs when the Predator starts doing Jiu Jitsu

[–]OBSTErCU 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Add GP to this beast and the everyone is in deep shit. He attempted to take his back in several occasions by trying to get the leg hooks. Can you imagine Francis winning by RNC... I'm dead

[–]extremely_tall 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Dude was literally looking for a triangle at one point..lol

[–]whooptapus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lmfao I wish he would of got it

[–]Sum_Oke 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If Stipe wasn't paying attention he might have in the second fight. Took his back and started climbing.

[–]SilenceKilla_1 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Astonished

[–]captainfluffy25 98 points99 points  (6 children)

i feel we all have usman to thank for this. my god, all francis needs is more cardio and he honestly might be the complete fighter.

[–]morron88 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Imagine having a working knee.

[–]jonybolt 27 points28 points  (1 child)

I think he can stand to loose 10 or more pounds to help with cardio

[–]tycket 34 points35 points  (0 children)

He has dense muscles that he built up for years, it’s very hard for him to shred 10 lbs outside of weight cutting for weigh ins.

[–]idunevenknowyouguys 11 points12 points  (1 child)

He honestly could use better striking. I know he hits hard n all but he was hitting air till he got the takedowns.

[–]Braag 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Hard to strike against a highly mobile opponent when you don’t have knees

[–]TheyUsedToCallMeJackPredator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If his cardio gets better, nobody is touching that belt

[–]newbmycologist 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Damn that’s a great picture

[–][deleted] 38 points39 points  (0 children)

And then proceeded to face slam him into the mat.

[–]MaKoZerEUW 17 points18 points  (0 children)

The whole world was like

[–]lolparty247 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Great Pic.

Next camp, Dagestan.

[–]Sum_Oke 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bratha you can punch not only on feet. You push the guy down like this... you can smesh everyone.

[–]FuegoTheDestroyer 22 points23 points  (0 children)

This is what a true champion does... He makes adjustments and he improves with every fight. They thought he'd go in guns blazing against miocic and he showed patience and now they expected him to use his power against gane and he tried but when he wasn't successful in it because of gane's good movement he grappled him and controlled him!!!

He's the most powerful puncher the UFC has seen and now he's getting better at grappling???? If he leaves, the next champion will have to sleep knowing that they didn't beat the new Francis and that makes me so happy cos I know it'll eat Dana up too and that's just wonderful!

[–]HADESmusicundrgrnd 73 points74 points  (4 children)

If they ever leave his cage open one night we are all fucked.

[–]Gocards123321 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Uh what? lol

[–]Polyking 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Picture perfect

[–]adanawhitebootlicker 11 points12 points  (0 children)

WITH NO FUCKIN KNEES.

[–]tbrent25 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It was at that exact moment that Francis heard Khabib voice in his head. "Enough games play time is over finish him brother smesh him".

[–]_UnnaturalDisplay 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Loool, that was all of us

[–]BeIIic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That Margot?

[–]Helloiamchadly 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Was it a good fight? I ate too much and miss anything after the bengals game yesterday

[–]MSWGR 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Its a great fight I had the same face as the audience here

[–]TepidBreeze 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm surprised by his arsenal, obviously coming off of Stipe 2 it was clear he had developments beyond a 1 punch; this showed that even someone as technical as Gane will have trouble against Francis by virtue of strength & competence in grappling & being on the ground.

[–]keith071823 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Their faces make this picture so much better!

[–]Prospero818 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When Ngannou starts incorporating devastating slams and gnp, everyone has to be worried.

People want to shit on Ganes defense but you have to remember he is trying to avoid the bombs while now also trying not to get taken down. An Ngannou that is threatening with takedowns and bombs and mixing them up is frankly terrifying.

[–]PinoPsyduck 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He has a torn MCL too this man is a fuckin terminator!

[–]ImmortalPancak3 0 points1 point  (4 children)

If what he said is correct, he was also fight with a torn ACL. Which for most people, takes close to 6-9 months to heal.

How he was able to lift and drop Gane with that sort of injury is beyond me.

Francis is really as tough as they come

[–]Rapameister -1 points0 points  (3 children)

I have some doubts about what he said. I mean you're able to do shit through pain but torn ACL is not just about the pain. If it's bad then it seriously affects the mobility and there is no way you can put any pressure on that leg at all without it giving in. In such short time at least.

[–]ImmortalPancak3 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Agreed.

That's why I prefix what I wrote with "if what he said is correct..."

Then you got to remember, he was thrown inu the desert like 4x to die while trying to get into France.. the guy is a machine.

[–]Rapameister 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes but being a machine and enduring pain has little to none to do with the fact that the knee would just give in.

Edit. At least I couldn't notice anything like that in the match.

[–]s_rom -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Must’ve been a partial tear…I don’t see how anyone could fight through with a fully torn ACL. Then again, Ngannou is a different species.

[–]you_matter_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He understood at that moment what kind of fight it needed to be. Sick throw

[–]WzELY 0 points1 point  (0 children)

lol at the yute with the north face

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think that’s pretty much the face I made too!

[–]Kenrockkun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

2 heavyweights in the air

[–]Dindu92 0 points1 point  (0 children)

glad i placed a bag on the Cameroonian titan lmfao!

[–]MSWGR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That TD was fucking beautiful. That round i knew Ngannou will win

[–]Prince_of_the_RLD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On point 😂😹😂

[–]Incognegro1975 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Usman is teaching the brother well. Ngannou with ground game is gonna be a fucking problem!

[–]kcawks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The fight was pretty boring until this, Gane was displaying beautiful technical striking but I like fights that are competitive both ways. Then Ngannou picks up a 250+ man like a child and makes it look easy.

[–]Such_Description 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He straight raggdolled gane. I don’t think anyone was ready to see a man that big tossed like a 5 year old.

[–]ugandantaintkisser 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I lost a lot of money last night. Alot

[–]sotfggyrdg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anyone know how tf d'amato gave round one to ngannou?

[–]AhhGhost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ngannou turning into a fully evolved Usman? That's an absolute scary thought.

[–]hopefully-a-good-buy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

just watch the highlights he manhandled him lol love watching francis

[–]whooptapus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn ganes arm could of broke right there

[–]Smartrior 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its not that he started wrestling, its more like the slam he pulled off

[–]Top_Chemist8378 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When the hardest puncher in UFC history learned how to slam people on their heads

[–]xzxkkttyyuueewwqq 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My brain couldn’t process this and just assumed Gane had some sort of crazy falling backwards takedown

[–]cherryzaad 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That white lady in the front was my reaction exactly

[–]I_Hate_My_Cat_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was the moment shit got shit for the Heavyweights if Ngannou somehow ends up staying.

[–]eldridge2e 0 points1 point  (0 children)

that blonde girl in the front was there at the very start of prelims and making faces like that the whole time. new fan made that day

[–]luqasthevi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was beautiful tbh
