The two heaviest punchers in the heavyweight division are going fight, and it shall be glorious.
Francis Ngannou, fresh off his crushing knockout over Alistair Overeem, gets his shot at the title, and you can bet champ Stipe Miocic is going to have that jab-cross combo ready to take his head off.
UFC 220 is the event, Boston is the host city, and here’s MMAJunkie with the scoop.
UFC 220 is on the verge of getting even bigger – literally.
The expected heavyweight title fight between champion Stipe Miocic and No. 1 contender Francis Ngannou is being targeted for the event, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC had yet to make its plans public.
UFC 220 takes place Jan. 20 at TD Garden in Boston and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Following Ngannous’s devastating knockout win over Alistair Overeem at UFC 218, UFC President Dana White said “The Predator” is next up for Miocic.
