Available on Pay-Per-View |
Saturday, January 20, 2018 | 10:00 PM ET / 7:00 PM PT
“Miocic vs. Ngannou” is exactly what it sounds like, as Stipe Miocic will defend his heavyweight strap against surging division power puncher Francis Ngannou, who punched his ticket to a championship title fight by smashing Alistair Overeem … and just about everyone else who stood in his path.
The festivities get underway promptly at 5 p.m. ET.
In the UFC 220 co-headliner, which is also set for 25 minutes and has a much better chance of using it, reigning light heavyweight kingpin Daniel Cormier will collide with top-ranked 205-pound contender Volkan Oezdemir. All four combatants are featured in today’s press conference video embedded above.
To see who else is fighting at next month’s UFC 220 event
The UFC returns for its first pay-per-view offering in 2018 when UFC 220 takes place Saturday, Jan. 20 at TD Garden in Boston.
The main event features Stipe Miocic defending the UFC heavyweight championship against No. 1-ranked Francis Ngannou. In the co-main event, Daniel Cormer defends the light heavyweight championship when he faces No. 2 ranked Volkan Oezdemir.
UFC 220 is a great way to kick off the new year featuring top-heavy card. It could be the best main and co-main events of 2018 due to the uncertainty of whether Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre return, how long Jon Jones will be suspended following his latest drug test failure and Ronda Rousey venturing off to the WWE.

UFC 220 preview
Miocic (17-2) knocked out Junior dos Santos at UFC 211 and tied the UFC record for most heavyweight title defenses at two. With no contender in sight and going through tense negotiations with the UFC, Miocic had decided to not fight until a new deal could be reached.
Cain Velasquez battled a litany of injuries throughout 2017 and his return is uncertain. Miocic had already knocked Alistair Overeem in a back-and-forth slugfest at UFC 203, in which the champion won by first-round knockout. No new contenders had really emerged.
Ngannou (11-1) has taken MMA by storm, winning his first five fights via stoppage — four by KO in the first round. Seeing they have a potential star in the making, the UFC made a No. 1 contender’s fight between Ngannou and Overeem at UFC 218. Ngannou delivered a Mike Tyson style knockout, blasting Overeem with a vicious left hook that sent the Dutchman flying back to the Netherlands.
A week later, the fight was made official. Miocic will be looking to make history while Ngannou looks to become the superstar the UFC is looking for.
Cormier (19-1, 1NC) is coming off a loss in his last fight when he got knocked out by Jon Jones at UFC 214. The loss didn’t last long: Jones failed another drug test, and the loss was changed to a no-contest. The UFC made the decision to give Cormier the title back. Since the result was changed, he didn’t technically lose.
Oezdemir (15-1) rolls into the biggest fight of his career on a five-fight winning streak, three of those in the UFC — including his last two by knockout in a combined 70 seconds, all in a span of under six months. The dream of UFC gold for “No Time” almost came to a halt last month, when Oezdemir was arrested for an alleged assault outside a bar in Fort Lauderdale, FL. (which took place in August) and charged with second-degree felony charges of aggravated battery with serious bodily injury. The case is still pending and the UFC felt confident enough to still put Oezdemir in a high-profile position.
