Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou set for UFC 220

Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou set for UFC 220

UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic has a date with destiny, and it is January 20, 2018. If Miocic were to successfully defend his title, he would be breaking the record for most consecutive heavyweight title defenses in UFC history, cementing himself as one of the top heavyweights of all time.

If the hulking Ngannou, who only made his UFC debut in December of 2015, hadn't already captured the imagination with five straight finishes, he certainly did so with his sixth - an otherworldly knockout of the aforementioned Overeem on Saturday night.

Ngannou is one of the biggest stars in UFC right now, and produced a sensational fight in Denver recently to knockout Alistair Overeem, and the power he has shown in recent fights has put him right in contention to fight champion Stipe Miocic.

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

Hewlett (HPQ) Holding Upped by Meag Munich Ergo Kapitalanlagegesellschaft Mbh
Quantitative Investment Management Limited holds 0.22% of its portfolio in Exelon Corporation (NYSE:EXC) for 409,300 shares. In related news, EVP Paymon Aliabadi sold 13,333 shares of the business's stock in a transaction on Monday, September 11th.

Miocic last defended his championship back in May.

The heavyweight clash is expected to headline the UFC 220 pay-per-view event, which will also feature a previously announced light heavyweight title bout between Daniel Cormier (19-1) and Volkan Oezdemir (15-1). 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.

It's unclear which of the two title fights would serve as the UFC 220 main event.
