    Terrible card.

    Gaethje loses a tough fight to veteran Eddie Alvarez.

    Never heard of Paul Felder but he got a nice ground and pound TKO over Oliviera with some vicious elbows. If you watch the replay you can almost feel the damage those elbows are doing!

    Of course now Francis Ngannou is basically the champ to all the idiot DWF's. He has power no doubt, but Overeem was swinging wildly and recklessly from the start. He was a KO waiting to happen, not to mention he's known for his glass chin and is past his prime. Ngannou is clearly juiced to the gills, but we all know how the drug testing racket works so hard to say if he will get caught or not. Miocic has a solid game and should be able to dispatch Ngannou, but if he doesn't for some reason, we will never hear the end of it....

    Gaethje's mother is Hispanic. I've read that Gaethje identifies with his Hispanic side. Gaethje's girlfriend, I think, is Hispanic. There is a youtube video titled:

    "The story of Justin Gaethje's journey to the UFC- Origins, Episode 18" by SBNation
    ()

    The mother is in the video. She is a very light skinned Hispanic woman.


    Heavyweight black guys being good at boxing isn't exactly a new thing or a surprise. Since the money has gotten big in MMA, now you see more black guys taking the sport seriously. Ngannou could dominate the heavyweight division for awhile, but the odds are against him dominating for a long time. Most heavyweight champions in the UFC only defend their belt for about 2 times before they are beaten, if I remember correctly.

    Ngannou is being hyped and I love it. Stipe will be the underdog in this fight. He will win, and I hope takes his talents to Belator. The UFC is run by Hollywood now. It needs a black champ, because blacks don't watch MMA like whites and Latinos do. DC and Mighty Mouse are educated, humble and well spoken. i.e...too white.

    This is why I rooted for Overeem for the first time (and the last). Like you said, if the new "Great Black Hope" lands and wins on Stipe we'll never hear the end of it.

    It's funny the Dumb White F***s and blacks are always talking about the next Great White Hope, even when there is already a white champion, but I never see them use the phrase Great Black Hope.
