Stipe Miocic To Defend Heavyweight Strap Against Francis Ngannou At UFC 220

Francis Ngannou Alistair Overeem

At the UFC 218 post-fight presser on Saturday night, a member of the gathered MMA media asked Dana White about the possibility of adding Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou to the UFC 220 card on January 20th. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC had yet to make its plans public.

Ngannou would be seven weeks removed from his most recent outing inside the Octagon, defeating Alistair Overeem at UFC 218 on December 2. The last time it happened was on December 27, 2008, at UFC 92, where 205-pound champion Forrest Griffin lost the title to Rashad Evans via TKO, while interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was stopped for the first time in his career by Frank Mir. Contractual issues, however, have kept Miocic out of the octagon since the Dos Santos fight. His last four victories have all come in the first round, all ending within the first two minutes. These problems now seem to be in the past though, and Miocic will look to set a new record for UFC heavyweight title defences with a win over Ngannou. Miocic's last five fights in total have resulted in stoppage wins.

With Miocic Vs Ngannou on-board, UFC 220 is now shaping up nicely with two title fights on-board as a light-heavyweight championship encounter between Daniel Cormier and Volkan Oezdemir also features on the first pay-per-view card of 2018. A victory for Miocic would break the record for consecutive title defenses by a UFC heavyweight champion, a mark that now sits at two.

The only time both undisputed titles were on the line on the same night was at UFC 44 in September 2003.
