Stipe Miocic is in pursuit of heavyweight history Saturday night.
In the most turnover-happy division in UFC history as far as champions are concerned, Miocic (17-2 MMA, 11-2 UFC) will attempt to get his third straight successful title defense when he meets Francis Ngannou (11-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) in the UFC 220 main event. The current high-water mark for successive UFC heavyweight title defenses is only two.
UFC 220 takes place Saturday at TD Garden in Boston. The main card, which includes two title fights, airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
The oddsmakers have made Miocic the underdog at +150 against the favored Ngannou, who is at -185 and coming off a massive “Knockout of the Year” win over Alistair Overeem at UFC 218 in December.
Ahead of the headliner, UFC broadcasters Dan Hardy and John Gooden step “Inside the Octagon” to break down the fight.
Check out Hardy and Gooden’s breakdown in the video above. And stay tuned for their breakdown of the co-main event title fight between light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (19-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) and Volkan Oezdemir (15-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC).
