yeah totally agree, but its just weird to me bc its not like stipe hurt him really bad or totally destroyed him for 25 minutes. clear win for sure and he took some punishment but wtf

Maybe everyone is underestimating how much Stipe hurt him. He landed a few clean shots, and while ngannou looked like they didn't phase him much, that might have been the hardest he's ever been hit and is like, "gently caress that poo poo," now. He was for sure afraid of getting punched, no question.

So I will learn to live with it. Because I can live with it. I can live with it.


I'm not quite on board for it, but the conspiracy theory that it was a fix is tempting

he's a poor guy, gets a shot in the bigs, loses in his title shot, getting outclassed by a guy who had much better fundamentals than him. he sees the 4.000 odds on Lewis, decides he's going to put down a lot of cash and then lose, only problem is lewis hurts his back and can't throw hard punches anymore, so Ngannou can't have the fight end that way, so how else can he get Lewis to win? he can't, so he just keeps waiting for Lewis to throw punches to end the fight, but they can't come out, so it ends in no action and a decision to a guy who threw a few more punches than he did.

Take citrulline malate instead of arginine, it actually increases blood levels of arginine better than arginine itself, which is poorly absorbed.

Getting that gassed and looking that helpless for 25 minutes would be a pretty mentally draining thing. The last time I was truly, utterly exhausted was loving terrifying, and I didn't have a huge man trying to knock me out.

The Ngannou fight has two leading theories: that the guy who willed himself from extreme poverty to the other side of the world like some 19th century pulp protagonist got completely broken mentally by losing once. Or that he tried to lose. I think he tried to lose cause his strategy could have produced no other possible outcome and I'm generally skeptical of "this professional fighter is actually a coward" theories. and also that it really, really looked like he tried to lose.

I figure his complete lack of talent, spatial awareness and general physical coordination probably balances it out to average.

It could be 'born in a warzone' but only most of the Dagestanis are unstoppable killing machines rather than all of them.

The easier explanation is that Ngannou and Lewis are counter fighters and this fight always had a strong chance of being a terrible staring contest. Lewis's back and Ngannou's extreme overcorrection just made it truly awful.

Ngannou did a really really really good job of spazzing out, swinging wildly, and tensing every muscle in his body the 3 times Derrick Lewis walked forward during the fight. I didn't know he was such a great actor.

Also, I love Da Black Beast and good for him to keep getting those checks but if I were the UFC I wouldn't book him again until the stuff with his back is sorted out 100%. He dropped out of one fight and now has a couple other fights where he just could not perform.

One of those isn’t a “theory,” though; it’s “nonsense.” Just so I’m clear, it’s _not_ the one that says, “high-profile loss on the biggest stage in the sport affects young fighter’s mental state.”

The guy who willed himself from extreme poverty to the other side of the world like some 19th century pulp protagonist rocketed to the top of the biggest promotion in his sport, achieved a position balanced on the point of changing his life forever, and said, “Lol, that’s far enough” and ran to the bookie with the notoriously generous UFC second-tier fighter money he’d acquired, and bet it all on himself to lose in an embarrassing, career-affecting way?

It’s not impossible, but I’m sticking with, “got scared.”

this is what i see. time does that weird dilation thing when you're tired where a minute seems like an eternity and 18 minutes of exhaustion and being hit at will by the champion of fat men could conceivably produce ptsd like symptoms in a man who has never had to work hard than a few minutes at a time to kill any human on earth with his bare hands and be lavished with money and praise.

of course it could be any multitude of things such as being shook,, watching a sad movie the night before, needing to poo poo real bad before hand and not finding being able to find a bin etc.
