UFC 220: Miocic vs. Ngannou fight card and preview



UFC 220: Miocic vs. Ngannou is an upcoming mixed martial arts event that
will be held on January 20, 2018 at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

A UFC Heavyweight Championship bout between current champion Stipe
Miocic and Francis Ngannou will serve as the event headliner.

Ngannou gained the world’s attention with a stellar knockout over the
legendary MMA fighter Alistair Overeem. This put the heavyweight
division on notice.

Miocic, the regining heavyweight champion is no slouch either. He holds
wins over top division competitors like AListair Overeem, Junior dos
Santos and Fabricio Werdum.

The event is also expected to feature a UFC Light Heavyweight
Championship bout between current champion Daniel Cormier and challenger
Volkan Oezdemir.

A welterweight bout between The Ultimate Fighter: American Top Team vs.
Blackzilians welterweight winner Kamaru Usman and Emil Weber Meek was
originally scheduled for UFC 219. However, due to an alleged visa issue
for Meek which affected his travel schedule, the pairing was delayed and
then rescheduled for this event. However, it was shifted to UFC Fight
Night: Stephens vs. Choi a day later, which takes place one week before
this event.

A welterweight bout between Abdul Razak Alhassan and Sabah Homasi was
originally scheduled for UFC 219, but later shifted to this event. The
pairing met previously at UFC 218, when Alhassan won via a controversial
TKO.
