UFC 220 Embedded 5: Miocic vs NGannou Vlog Series


Ngannou looks absolutely exhausted heading back to his corner.

Francis Ngannou is the new UFC heavyweight champion of the world.

Miocic looked the much fresher fighter coming into the second round and he used his footwork to pick away with his jab at range.

Perhaps now Stipe Miocic will get his just due. Big uppercut for Ngannou. His personality outside the cage-or at least the one the notoriously shy OH native allows us to see-is about as exciting as watching paint fade.

Avoiding the onslaught, Miocic found himself trapped against the cage as Ngannou pressed forward with a series of haymakers.

By the third round, Ngannou was visibly worn out.

Ngannou throws a high kick early.

The Vikings will counter with the seventh-ranked rushing attack that averaged 122.3 rushing yards per game. As New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead said, the Minnesota Vikings fans are "officially ridiculous".

In terms of statistics, Miocic won every single category by a wide margin including out striking Ngannou 200-33 in total strikes while landing six takedowns, four guard passes while landing over 73-percent of his significant stirkes. After momentarily threatening with a guillotine, Miocic released and Ngannou as the two fighters made their way back to their feet. "I fought for a vacant title and I got the job done so I'm a UFC champion again".

Miocic cruised to an easy decision with 50-44 scores across the board. UFC 220 didn't completely deliver, but Ngannou vs. Miocic was one of the more intense heavyweight fights in recent memory.

The card is headlined with heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic defending his title against Francis Ngannou.

He was beaten twice by Jones, though the second of those was changed to a no-contest when Jones failed his post-fight drug test in July after UFC 214.

As impressive as the 28-year-old Swiss standout has been during his current three-fight winning streak, beating Ovince Saint Preux, Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa isn't the same as sharing the cage with some of the icons and legends Cormier has faced during his march to the top of the division. Slower pace from both men. Oezdemir landed some stinging rights early on that reddened the side of Cormier's face, but the champion simply continued to walk him down and he landed some huge right hands of his own to dip the challenger's legs.

Cormier almost ended the fight against Oezdemir in the first round with a choke until there was a late save by the bell. The bell saved the challenger but only prolonged the inevitable. He followed with a takedown, advanced immediately to Oezdemir's back and cinched a rear-naked choke in the closing seconds. Cormier struck for another takedown in Round 2, moved to the mounted crucifix and cut loose with short punches until referee Kevin McDonald had seen enough.
