UFC 220 promo video for ‘Miocic vs Ngannou’ event on Jan. 20 in Boston

UFC 220 is all set to go down on Saturday Jan. 20, 2018 from inside TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts, and will feature a Heavyweight title fight between division champion Stipe Miocic and power-hitting Francis Ngannou.

Miocic is looking to defend his title for the third time in “Bean Town” when he faces off against his stiffest test to date, Francis Ngannou, in UFC’s first mega event of 2018. Stipe hasn’t stepped foot inside the cage since May after a contract dispute with the promotion forced him to the sidelines.

But now that he’s back, his next fight will be a monumental task, as he will be facing the most powerful puncher in all of MMA, as “The Predator” has taken out one foe after another rather violently.

In the co-main event, Daniel Cormier will look to move on from Jon Jones once and for all when he defends his 205-pound title against Volkan Oezdemir.

Strikeforce, UFC vet Sarah Kaufman headlines Invicta 27 on Jan. 13

Sarah Kaufman, one of the pioneers of women’s mixed martial arts (MMA) will make her return to Invicta FC to kick off her 2018 fight campaign, thanks to a headlining spot against an opponent to be named on Jan. 13 inside Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Missouri.

MMA Fighting brought word of the booking on Wednesday.

Kaufman (18-4, 1 NC) rose to fame under the now-defunct Strikeforce banner, where she captured the women’s bantamweight title. While her success did not translate to UFC stardom (2-2, 1 NC), the 32-year-old Canadian does hold wins over Miesha Tate, Roxanne Modafferi, and Alexis Davis, among others.

After her contract expired and failed to come to terms on a new deal with UFC, Kaufman tried to finagle a Cris Cyborg fight, prior to the Brazilian’s addition to the WME | IMG-owned roster.

Kaufman was last seen capturing a unanimous decision win over Jessica-Rose Clark at Battleground: “The Great Beginning” back in March.

UFC on FOX 27: Derek Brunson vs Jacare Souza on tap for Jan. 27 in Charlotte

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has apparently rubber-stamped a middleweight bout between top contenders Derek Brunson and Ronaldo Souza for the upcoming UFC on FOX 27 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Sat., Jan. 27, 2018 inside Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“I signed my contract and I’m pretty sure Jacare signed his contract,” Brunson told ESPN. “I was aiming for somebody who would get me a title shot. But after thinking about it, a first-round finish over Jacare, who’s been considered as one of the best fighters on the planet, I think that gets me a shot.”

After a shady decision loss to Anderson Silva at UFC 208, Brunson (18-5) roared back with consecutive knockout wins over Daniel Kelly and Lyoto Machida. Souza (24-5, 1 NC), meanwhile, is looking to rebound from his technical knockout loss to interim kingpin Robert Whittaker last April.

UFC on FOX 27 is expected to be headlined by the middleweight showdown pitting Vitor Belfort opposite Uriah Hall. Elsewhere on the card, Ovince Saint Preux tangles with Ilir Latifi for a spot in the 205-pound title chase.
