With the win, Ngannou has earned a shot at the UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic and the two are reportedly being targeted to fight at UFC 220 in January. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC had yet to make its plans public.

Including a savage victory against decorated heavyweight Alistair Overeem at UFC 218.

20 at TD Garden in Boston and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. Miocic has defended his title twice since defeating then-champion Fabricio Werdum via first-round knockout at UFC 198 in May 2016.

A victor of five consecutive fights, including two title defenses, Miocic has run through numerous top contenders at heavyweight, but now he'll be facing one of the best prospects to join the roster in several years. He tied the record with a first-round knockout of Junior dos Santos at UFC 211 in Dallas on May 13. Miocic's last five fights in total have resulted in stoppage wins.

First Lady Melania Trump visits Whataburger while in Texas
Trump and Pence were scheduled to stop next at the Coastal Bend Food Bank. "They are here for ongoing help with Hurricane Harvey". But before leaving Corpus Christi, the first lady and the second lady stopped at Whataburger's flagship location for some lunch.

"He has punching power", Cooper told MMA Junkie.

Now Ngannou will get his first shot at gold as he faces Miocic in Boston as the new headliner for UFC 220 with light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier taking on Volkan Oezdemir in the co-main event on the card. A victory for Miocic would break the record for consecutive title defenses by a UFC heavyweight champion, a mark that now sits at two.

That was the 31-year-old Ngannou's sixth win since joining the UFC two years ago and leaves him with an overall 11-1 record, making him one of the most exciting rising stars to emerge at heavyweight in years.

The only time both undisputed titles were on the line on the same night was at UFC 44 in September 2003.
