In the main event at UFC 220, Francis Ngannou is ideally positioned to prove himself a worthy holder of the UFC Heavyweight title. Ngannou’s terrifying bulldoze through the division, given how relatively new he is to the sport of MMA and indeed his incredible life story, is nothing short of amazing.

Knockout victory after knockout victory has seen the 6ft 5in Ngannou establish himself as very much the brightest UFC prospect in the division and he believes it is his destiny to reign supreme. Who is anyone to argue with him!

Stipe Miocic will definitely try. The likeable champ has crisp striking, outstanding cardio coupled with his unrelenting dedication to fighting.

But Miocic does get cracked, and wobbled from time to time, and that will not be good for him against Francis Ngannou, who already looks on point in the stand up position and is sure to keep finding improvement. UFC betting odds of 4/5 looks a fair enough price about Ngannou winning by way of a KO/TKO stoppage.

Daniel Cormier v Volkan Oezdemir

In the co-main event, Light-Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier invites Volkan Oezdemir to the UFC Octagon for a pop at his title.

Cormier is one of the best MMA operators of recent years, but he is getting on in years and has been through some real wars, including his most recent KO loss to the since banned Jon Jones.

Volkan Oezdemir is the fresher fighter and will arrive at this UFC 202 event in brilliant form, after KO wins over Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa.

He hits hard and has the size to give Cormier some real problems in getting him to the mat. If the Swiss native Oezdemir can keep his composure, he might just find the right punch to set up the beginning of the end of Daniel Cormier in this division.
