Miocic-Ngannou title fight eyed for UFC 220

Francis Ngannou Alistair Overeem

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

Miocic will defend his championship against fast-rising contender Francis Ngannou in the main event of UFC 220 at the TD Garden in Boston, according to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani, who reported the news late Wednesday night. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC had yet to make its plans public.

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic has a date with destiny, and it is January 20, 2018.

Following Ngannous's devastating knockout win over Alistair Overeem at UFC 218, UFC President Dana White said "The Predator" is next up for Miocic. These problems now seem to be in the past though, and Miocic will look to set a new record for UFC heavyweight title defences with a win over Ngannou. His last four victories have all come in the first round, all ending within the first two minutes. He tied the division's all-time record of two consecutive title defenses in May with a knockout win over Junior dos Santos. Miocic also enters the fight on a five fight winning streak and he hasn't suffered a defeat in over three years.

Over the weekend at UFC 218, rising heavyweight star Francis Ngannou put together a highlight reel knockout over the always unsafe Alistair Overeem.
