Miocic-Ngannou title fight eyed for UFC 220

07 Décembre 2017

UFC 220 is on the verge of getting even bigger - literally.

On a card that already boasted one title fight in Daniel Cormier defending his light heavyweight strap against Volkan Oezdemir, Dana White is treating the Boston faithful to a second title fight, creating an event that should kick off 2018 in the right direction. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC had yet to make its plans public. 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. The card takes place inside the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on January 20. He tied the division's all-time record of two consecutive title defenses in May, in a knockout win over Junior dos Santos.

The UFC star is one of the hottest fighters in MMA at the moment after his sensational knockout of Alistair Overeem in Denver.

Miocic is riding a five fight winning streak heading into UFC 220, while Ngannou has won ten in a row.

Among the pictures released, one showed not just the stars in the background but also blurry people in the bottom-right corner. According to CNN , using longer exposures meant the movement would be captured as a blur.

Fighting out of Cleveland, Miocic asked the UFC to restructure his contract earlier this year.

There is perhaps the expectancy that a fight between Joshua and Ngannou could produce a similar level of interest, although the British fighter has so far not taken any notice of champion Miocic's recent challenge towards him.

This would mark just the fourth time in UFC history that the heavyweight and light heavyweight titles would be at stake on the same card.

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