    I think the scariest situation would be if Adesanya started wrestling like Usman, Ngannou got Izzy's striking and Usman got Ngannou's KO power😂😂

    Pro-Wrestling stable Usman is the straight faced reasonable leader one always calming down the cocky Izzy who is the lead loud mic worker while Francis just stands there menacingly as an enforcer occasionally speaking 1 word answers like "PAIN!". Usman - Seth/hhh/hogan Izzy - Ambrose/orton-flair/hall Francis - Reigns/batista/nash

    "No, they cannot be Hokage of the hidden Africa Village before ME!" *when Izzy realizes he's coming off a loss, and Usman can beat Colby,WonderBoy,Leon, stacked WW div ahead of him and Francis has all time great HWp4p Stipe and a GOAT convo member in Jones after Lewis lined up, all ready to propell them past Izzy in p4p especially if Jones loses to Francis*

    Jon Jones can beat Ngannou. He is a true athlete and If he can avoid the deadly punches and get Francis on the ground it's goodnight for Francis Ngannou.Jon Jones is a better fighter
