Ngannou's power has fired him in contention to fight champion Stipe Miocic, but his coach clearly has plans beyond MMA. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC had yet to make its plans public.
Ngannou leapt into title shot talk with a win over Alistair Overeem at UFC 218, and Dana White had said he would get the next shot at Miocic.
UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic has a date with destiny, and it is January 20, 2018. He tied the record with a first-round knockout of Junior dos Santos at UFC 211 in Dallas on May 13.
Miocic vs. Ngannou is the second title fight to be added to UFC 220, which takes place at Boston's TD Garden, as a light-heavyweight title clash between Daniel Cormier (c) and Swiss clock-cleaner Volkan Oezdemir had already been announced.Читайте также: Ohio State continues its Florida pipeline with four-star commit Tyreke Johnson
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.
"Everyone was so enthralled about the Conor McGregor/Floyd Mayweather fight", Dewey Cooper told MMA Junkie. A victory for Miocic would break the record for consecutive title defenses by a UFC heavyweight champion, a mark that now sits at two.
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.
It's unclear which of the two title fights would serve as the UFC 220 main event.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
