UFC 220 Updates & Prediction

UFC 220 Updates and Prediction:

Francis Ngannou gave a bold statement by saying that he thought Overeem was the best striker in heavyweight division after him, because he is the best. He said that Miocic is champion for a reason but he is the best. When asked that will Miocic try to wrestle? Ngannou said that he is continuously working on his wrestling skills and will give Miocic tough time

Brief Introduction about Ngannou:

Born on 5th Sept, 1986 in Cameroon. Ngannou is ranked the number one contender in heavy weight UFC division as per UFC and ESPN

He currently holds the record for highest punch power ever measured by the UFC, at 129,161 units. He broke the previous record set by kickboxing champ Tyrone Spong which was at 114,000 units

My opinion:

I have not seen a heavy weight fighter which is as fast as Ngannou and with his striking power, I am quite sure, if he touches Miocic, it will be goodnight for him

My prediction UFC 220:

My prediction is that Francis will win the heavyweight bout against Stipe Miocic

Physical Features (Ngannou):

Height: 1.93 m

Weight: 118 kg

Reach: 83 in (210 cm)

MMA record for Francis Ngannou:

He won 11 fights and lost only one against Zoumana Cisse in terms of Unanimous decision. Francis won four fights with submission but his most recent fight against Overeem shows his punching power and skills

On the whole, I am expecting a brutal knockout from Francis but Miocic is a champion for a reason and if he is able to overcome the challenges put in his way by Ngannou, he will set the record of being the best heavy weight fighter to have defended heavyweight title for consecutive three times

ufc 220 miocic vs ngannou

Stipe Miocic has an impressive record of 17 wins and 2 losses. It will be a good competition and as a UFC lover I can’t wait to see the two heavyweight fighters fight inside cage

Miocic lost against Junior dos Santos and Stefan Struve

In his second fight against Junior dos Santos, he won by TKO punch

Both fighters and brilliant in different areas and I guess Miocic should try to mix up attacks and manage distance accordingly to have a win against Ngannou

UFC 195 Results and breakdown with awesome videos:

Finally UFC 195 happened at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas Nevada on 2nd of Jan, 2016.
What a way to start the year.
miocic vs arlovski ufc 195

The Co Mian Event featuring Stipe Miocic vs Andrei Arlovski (The Pit Bull) & Main Event featuring Robbie Lawler vs Carlos Condit (natural born killer) for welterweight championship. Robbie started his fighting career when he was 19 years old. On the other hand Carlos will have height and reach advantage and has a very unique style of fighting.

Andrei has not lost any fight since he invaded UFC and has a 7 win streak. Stipe has defeated Mark Hunt, Big Foot Silva and Junior Dos Santos. Andrei is ranked as second best heavy weight fighter in the world and Miocic is ranked as third best heavy weight fighter. Don’t forget that Andrei is a former champion too!!

Tony Sims vs Abel Trujillo:

Tony had reach and height advantage from the beginning and Sims was scoring quite well but when he tried to take Abel down, Abel gets a chowk and wins by submission.
This was Abel’s second submission win.

The Street fight academy

-By the way, look out for Bantamweight Championship TJ Dillashaw vs Dominick Cruz on January 17th…!

The next fight was between Brian Ortega (trained by Gracie Family) vs Diego Brandao

Brian is one of the youngest fighters (age is 24) and has an undefeated fighting career.
Diego has powerful striking power but it’s not only about power, its about technique. During the first two rounds Brandao owned the center of Octagon but couldn’t do damage. Brian wins with a beautiful triangle chowk submission. Do watch it, it was a beautiful transition..! Brian remains undefeated!!

Lorenz Larkin vs Albert Tumenov:

Larkins throwed loads of leg kicks which took all the punching power away from Tumenov. Larkin had the kicking advantage and Tumenov had punching advantage. The fight was won by Albert Tumenov according to scores & unanimus decision. As far as I rate this fight, the fight was won by Larkin.


Note: At UFC 196 which will take place on 6th of Feb, 2016 at MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada-there will be a rematch between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum

Stipe Miocic vs Andrei Arlovski:

Well well well …within the first few seconds of the first round Miocic knocked out Arlovski by landing a powerful punch..just like that..!
Now Stipe Miocic becomes the number one contender for the heavy weight championship.

The Main Event eventually – Carlos vs Lawler:

It was the second title defense for Lawler.
In the first round, although Lawler owned the center of Octagon but Carlos stunned him with an excellent punch, he was tagged badly but recovered. Excellent foot movement and combination shown by Carlos. 1st round was won by Carlos, he kept on attacking and brought variety to it.

2nd Round was won by Lawler, big punch landed on Carlos’s face. The volume of attack favors Carlos as he lands loads of combinations. The momentum kept on changing.

3rd Round, Carlos landed more strikes then Lawler has thrown. Till the 3rd round Carlos landed 247 strikes and Lawler 67 thus giving the striking advantage to Carlos.

4th Round, Carlos lands an awesome inside leg kick. This round was won by Carlos, excellent combinations landed, knee, elbows and kicks…!

5th round was the best round, leaving everything behind both fighters start to get lose. I loved it..at the end of the fight, both fighters were so exhausted that they had to lean against the cage. Robbie was the champion, he won and defended well because of his attacks being very prominent and powerful.
