Best of UFC 220 photos

Stipe Miocic

Cameroonian-French professional heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou nicknames the 'Predator' is currently ranked number 1 contenter by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN).

He had something to prove... and his fight with Volkan Oezdemir was the perfect opportunity.

Saturday night's pay-per-view card in Boston was a weird one.

Indeed, the former Invicta and Strikeforce title holder has evolved from brutal berserker to a technical titan with her victory in the main event slot of UFC 219 one of cold composure. I'm the champ. I broke the record. I'm not going to be doing this anymore. Thirty seconds into the second round, Font floored his counterpart with an overhand right.

Miocic has won six straight, and nine of his last ten.

Last weekend's UFC 220 event in Boston showcased two successful title defenses and a handful of strong performances by Massachusetts natives.

"Being in the street in Paris, it wasn't scary", he said. "It's me", said Miocic. Big physique often means big shots but big physique often needs big oxygen. That makes it that much sweeter. The older guy has to put over the younger guy, the guy that's going to carry the flag into the next generation. In the always sparse heavyweight division, there aren't many options left. His punches were visibly seen by Miocic and he was being telegraphed. Ngannou managed to land heavy blows on Miocic, even hitting the champion with an uppercut early in the fight, although it was not on the same level as the one that put Alistair Overeem to sleep. Seeing grown men cold-clocked into unconsciousness tends to have that effect on otherwise articulate adults. What White is really saying is that it's a fight he'd like to sell. "I said coming in here that I felt like I was fighting for a vacant title again". Razak Alhassan knocked Homasi cold with a vicious right that brought a gasp from the crowd and left Homasi motionless on his back for a couple of minutes.

And Cyborg had more rounds in her such was the depth of her gas tank. Lewis faces fellow top contender Marcin Tybura in his home state of Texas in about one month. After Miocic's win over Junior dos Santos in May 2017, the team stood firm wanting a new contract.

Although heavily dominated after that first round, Francis Ngannou cannot be counted out of the UFC's heavyweight division. It's a riskier fight for Jury than Kattar, based on rankings, but it has "Fight of the Night" potential.

"People have talked about that for a really long time", Cormier said (h/t MMAFighting). He's a tough dude, there's no question.

Daniel Cormier made pretty easy work of Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 220.

"If his body can hold up, I do. Listen, man, I don't worry about repairing anything". Kattar met him with a jarring overhand right that had him stumbling backward. "That's pretty funny. He said, 'What are you talking about?' He denied it". While those who won celebrate and those who lost go back to the drawing board, fans want to know: what's next?

And that was on the feet, on the ground, the Dagestian is legitimately frightening.

Both fighters were winded by the third round and Ngannou looked sleepy as he whiffed on a few blows in the fifth. Especially when there appears to be some bad blood between the two now.
