Current reigning heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic (17-2) will defend his title against Francis Ngannou on the UFC 220 card. Stipe is riding a 5 fight winning streak, he has finished everyone he fought during his winning streak, 4 of those in the first round.
Francis Ngannou (11-1) has a lot of hype behind him right now. Francis has only lost one fight and he’s been putting the hurt on people. He recently landed an uppercut straight from hell on Alistair Overeem. He has won ten in a row, 6 of those in the UFC. His performance over Alistair Overeem has everyone talking.
On a side note. If Stipe Miocic can pick up the win, he will break the UFC record for heavyweight title defenses. He is currently tied with several other fighters at 2. If he can get that 3rd title defense he will be the only heavyweight to ever do it.
Daniel Cormier will also be on the UFC 220 card, he will defend his title against Volkan Oezdemir. UFC 220 takes place January 20th, 2018. In Boston.
