Oops

Damn, got busy doing stuff and did not get to watch the card. Just turned on the stream and Johnson is walking out. MMA fan luck.

Johnson is better than people know because he has not fought in the UFC.

Should put up a fight, Minakov by 2nd round sub.

Looks like Tony Johnson has been eating good while in Russia and throughout this camp.

Hopefully they keep Conor out of the cage today.

Stipe is lucky he is not in the UFC. So is Ngannou.

20-0

Such a shame Minakov isn't in the ufc. I would love to see him against a Werdum or Hunt. I think he would be competative in the top 5. He isn't talked about. But is easily one of the best figthers outside the ufc.

BJ Penn Forever - Stipe is lucky he is not in the UFC. So is Ngannou.

20-0


Correction, 21-0.

I really, really wanted to see him vs Barnett a few years ago, could have been the best HW grappling fight since Barnett vs Big Nog.

Ngannou would beat Minakov..too big, fast and powerful imo..
