UFC 220

F4W:

Quote
After Francis Ngannou's highlight-reel knockout of Alistair Overeem at this past Saturday's UFC 218, it wasn't a case of 'if' but 'when' when it came to getting a shot at UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic.

On Wednesday night, we may have found out the 'when': Saturday, January 20th at UFC 220 in Boston, Mass., first reported by MMA Junkie and confirmed by MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani

Quote
The fight should headline a show with a co-main event of light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier vs. light heavyweight prospect Volkan Oezdemir who burst onto the scene this year with three wins, two by first round knockout.

Too quick of a turnaround for Ngannou or is he going the young Jon Jones route?

Lots of pressure on DC to re-legitimize himself.

What are the odds that this thread dies out and somebody starts a new one before the show happens?

I just added some questions for you to answer.

The board is dead, this will bump maybe 5 spots down in the next few weeks.

Francis took no damage in the Reem fight. It’s more a question about his body peaking again in a month turnaround.

Yeah, he called Stipe out post-fight.  I don't have a problem with the turnaround.

I think he would have been better off working on some skills in the meantime, mainly anti-grappling stuff. I guess he feels ready for this challenge though.

Stipe is gonna try so hard to treat this guy like Cain would but I have no idea if that will work. I think Curtis Blaydes is a better wrestler than Stipe, and he was only able to ground Ngannou twice only for Francis to get straight back up and beat the fuck out of him. It's a good strategy though.

I got Stipe getting knocked out early for trying to turn it into an ugly brawl.
