Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou Aiming For UFC 220 in January

Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou Aiming For UFC 220 in January

The UFC is close to finalizing a heavyweight title fight between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou for UFC 220 on January 20 in Boston.

20 at TD Garden in Boston and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

After Ngannou's knockout of Alistair Overeem on the main card of UFC 218, everyone in attendance knew we had ourselves a new No. 1 contender, and this would be made official by Dana White in the post-fight press conference. His last four victories have all come in the first round, all ending within the first two minutes.

A Euclid native and graduate of Eastlake North High School based out of Strong Style Gym in Independence, Miocic will go for a UFC record third consecutive defense of the heavyweight championship.

A perfectionist in and out of the cage, Miocic earned his measure of redemption from the unanimous-decision loss in a five-round slugfest against dos Santos at UFC Fight Night: Dos Santos vs. Miocic in Phoenix, Arizona on December 13, 2014.

The list of targets for the forthcoming telescope is long, but Cloutier and his colleagues think K2-18b is a deserving candidate. That means that a satellite or manned mission traveling to K2-18b would take over 2.3 million years to get there.

Now Ngannou is getting his shot at Miocic and the heavyweight title with the new fight expected to headline UFC 220.

Ngannou has looked unstoppable since first arriving in the UFC while recording six straight wins including his vicious one punch knockout against Overeem this pastSaturdayat UFC 218 in Detroit. Last week it was announced that Daniel Cormier will defend the light heavyweight title vs. Volkan Oezdemir on the card.

'He has punching power, ' Cooper told MMA Junkie.

It's unclear which of the two title fights would serve as the UFC 220 main event.
