Cain Velasquez vs Francis Ngannou Preview

The long awaited return of Cain Velasquez goes down this weekend, and this is big news for the UFC Heavyweight division. This isn’t a knock on Velasquez, but it blows my mind how highly regarded he still is in the eyes of fans despite being so inactive for such a long time. I guess that speaks to the impact he made in the division all of those years ago, although he has been laid off for such a long time I do believe he can pick up right from where he left off.

But man, is he ever in for a very rough first fight back. Stylistically the fight favors Cain for sure, Ngannou isn’t known for his grappling prowess to say the least, but what he is known for is being one of the scariest fighters in the history of the sport large in part  because of that downright terrifying power he possess. Whatever the outcome may be, this is going to be a fun one, folks.
