Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou set for UFC 220

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC had yet to make its plans public.

Well, it's time to put that all in the rearview because one of the biggest fights in UFC heavyweight history is official and will take place in just over a months time at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

In the co-main event of UFC 218 at Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit on Saturday, December 2, Ngannou earned a vicious first-round knockout of former top contender Alistair Overeem with a left hook that landed flush on the jaw. He tied the division's all-time record of two consecutive title defenses in May, in a knockout win over Junior dos Santos.

Miocic is riding a five fight winning streak heading into UFC 220, while Ngannou has won ten in a row.

While the UFC has a champion in Miocic and a contender in Ngannou, many believed the fight was far from set in stone due to Miocic's recent contract negotiations.

UFC 220 now features one other title fight, a light heavyweight championship showdown between Daniel Cormier and fast-rising contender Volkan Oezdemir. Now with 10 straight stoppage wins to his credit, Ngannou will face Miocic for the Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title sometime in 2018; so impressive was his knockout of Overeem that the Cameroonian has opened as a -160 favorite against the reigning Miocic.

It's unclear which of the two title fights would serve as the UFC 220 main event.

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