Now that UFC 219 is in the books — full results here — it’s time to look ahead to Ultimate Fighting Championship’s (UFC) next pay-per-view (PPV) offering.
And it’s a big one.
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.
