UFC 220

 

This weekend, we see the Ultimate Fighting Championship late on Saturday night. It involves the Heavyweight title fight between Miocic vs. Ngannou. Both fighters are undefeated bringing excitement to the fight and a strong air of tension between both fighters.

Miocic from the United States is the fan’s favourite to keep his belt, however, Ngannou in recent months has produced unbelievable performances against top fighters. Miocic stands at 6’4” and comes from Ohio and is currently the UFC Heavyweight champion. Ngannou comes from Cameroon; he is also 6’4”. The fighter is confident he can take the title from Miocic within the first few rounds. Ngannou only had his first fight barely two years ago back in December 2015 against Luis Henrique. The fight ended with a devastating uppercut, which is still replayed to this day to illustrate his deadly potential.

Daniel Cormier also faces Volkan Oezdimir to protect his Light Heavyweight belt. Cormier hopes he can keep the belt by knocking out the Swiss fighter in front of his fans in Boston. Oezdimir is fighting for his country of Switzerland by proving that it can produce world-class fighters. The American fighters are the fan’s favourites in Boston however many other fans from all countries have travelled to watch the world-renowned sport. Many other fights are taking place to warm up the fans for the main fights. Some of the fights earlier in the event could also prove too exciting due to the fact the bill is bursting with talent.

Prediction: I think that Ngannou has the talent to take the belt from Miocic, however, both fighters have unbelievable strength and speed but Ngannou and his boxing skill will come out on top. Also, I think Daniel Cormier will come out on top and protect his belt. I believe that the fight will not end by knockout but he will win by unanimous decision.
