Francis Ngannou's Coach Wants Fight With Anthony Joshua In 2018

Francis Ngannou's Coach Wants Fight With Anthony Joshua In 2018

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.

In the co-main event of UFC 218 at Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit on Saturday, December 2, Ngannou earned a vicious first-round knockout of former top contender Alistair Overeem with a left hook that landed flush on the jaw. He defeated Overeem via first-round KO at UFC 203 last September, before stopping former champion Junior dos Santos with a first-round TKO at UFC 211 in May. Miocic also enters the fight on a five fight winning streak and he hasn't suffered a defeat in over three years.

Miocic has not fought since that May encounter, unable to come to an agreement on a contract renegotiation with the UFC.

There is perhaps the expectancy that a fight between Joshua and Ngannou could produce a similar level of interest, although the British fighter has so far not taken any notice of champion Miocic's recent challenge towards him.

UFC 220 now features one other title fight, a light heavyweight championship showdown between Daniel Cormier and fast-rising contender Volkan Oezdemir.

The most anticipated heavyweight bout in MMA right now - and perhaps ever - is set for January's UFC 220.

This would mark just the fourth time in UFC history that the heavyweight and light heavyweight titles would be at stake on the same card.
