Division: Heavyweight
UFC Odds: Ngannou -160 Prediction: Ngannou by KO/TKO
The Miocic, 35, seems to create UFC history by making a third consecutive powerful defence of his heavyweight title — that has never been done before. Miocic has won five fights in a row overall and took the belt from Fabricio Werdum by first-round knockout (punches) at UFC 198 in May 2016. Miocic then overcome Alistair Overeem in September that year by first-round knockout (punches) and got revenge on former winner Junior dos Santos in May 2017 with a first-round TKO (punches). Dos Santos handed Miocic his final loss, back in December 2014. A total of 13 of Miocic’s 17 wins have come by KO/TKO.
Ngannou, a 31-year-old out of Cameroon, will be the biggest name in the sport aside from Conor McGregor, if McGregor ever struggles. “The Predator” simply has catastrophic power — think Mike Tyson in his prime. Ngannou has yet to see that the third round in some of his fights, and his previous four’ve ended by either KO/TKO or submission in just two minutes of their first round. Ngannou destroyed Overeem in December with a punch, and during his six fights in the UFC Ngannou has gained 1.83 knockdowns per 15 minutes, the highest rate among ranked heavyweights. Miocic, a former NCAA wrestler, will need this battle on the mat. He was past an underdog vs. Werdum.
