UFC 220 Miocic vs. Ngannou Betting: Fight Card Odds and Predictions

Francis Ngannou at a very long time has seen a scarier heavyweight than the UFC. He takes in Boston on Stipe Miocic for its championship belt Saturday.
We’re just in the third week of January, but the UFC could have difficulty staging a much better card on top at 2018 compared to UFC 220 on Saturday night in TD Garden at Boston. It’s headlined with a heavyweight title bout between champion Stipe Miocic and frightening Francis Ngannou. The five-fight main card is expected to start at 10 p.m. ET on pay-per-view. Following is a look at their MMA odds and those spells.

Records: Miocic (17-2), Ngannou (11-1)
Division: Heavyweight
UFC Odds: Miocic +130, Ngannou -160 Prediction: Ngannou by KO/TKO
The Miocic, 35, seems to make UFC history here by making a third straight powerful defence of his eponymous name — that’s 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 champion 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 from Cameroon, could soon be the biggest name in the sport other than Conor McGregor, if McGregor ever fights again. “The Predator” simply has catastrophic power — think Mike Tyson in his prime. Ngannou has yet to observe that the third round in some of his struggles, along with his previous four’ve all ended by KO/TKO or entry within two minutes of the first round. Ngannou ruined Overeem in December using a punch, and throughout his six fights in the UFC Ngannou has gained 1.83 knockdowns per 15 minutes, the maximum rate among ranked heavyweights. Miocic, a former NCAA wrestler, will need this battle on the mat. He had been last an underdog vs. Werdum.
