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

07 December 2017

Francis Ngannou can challenge heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, according to his coach Dewey Cooper. He's reeled off six straight wins since making his promotional debut in 2015.

Following Ngannous's devastating knockout win over Alistair Overeem at UFC 218, UFC President Dana White said "The Predator" is next up for Miocic. Ngannou thrashed the veteran inside 2-minutes to earn a devastating victory.

News arrived from MMA Junkie and was subsequently confirmed by MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani tonight (Dec. 6, 2017) that champion Stipe Miocic will take on surging No. 1 contender Francis Ngannou in a potentially explosive match-up.

The whole boxing vs MMA debate was settled a long time ago it would have seemed, in terms of if athletes from either sport trying to hop into the other at the highest level the result doesn't bode well for them. 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. A contract dispute kept him out of action for the rest of the year.

But before Ngannou targets a bout in the squared circle, he'll set his sights on Miocic.

While it isn't official yet, here's hoping the UFC deliver Miocic vs. Ngannou in 2018.
