Stipe Miocic: 'I'm More of a Mixed Martial Artist than Francis Ngannou'

Stipe Miocic: 'I'm More of a Mixed Martial Artist than Francis Ngannou' Stipe Miocic: 'I'm More of a Mixed Martial Artist than Francis Ngannou'

The event is headlined by a championship double-header including Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou in the heavyweight division and light heavyweight title holder Daniel Cormier against Volkan Oezdemir. Alongside his first-round knockout of Overeem at UFC 218 last month, which many believe is the KO of the Year, it was not hard for UFC to award him with a title shot. That punch pushed Ngannou's hype train to warp speeds, and it seems the fighter himself is ready to embrace the attention and to capitalize on it to the max. I think it's nearly a given. "He's got a lot of power, like everyone said, but I'll do what I want", Miocic told MMAWeekly.com's Damon Martin when indicating that he has more ways to win the fight than Ngannou.

If Ngannou does indeed dethrone Miocic, then I simply don't see another Heavyweight having enough to bother him for some time - so he'll be holding the title for a while, at least into 2019.

The hosts of the show, according to MMA Fighting, talked about how much French footballers get paid, which caused Ngannou to respond by saying: "Yes, but you must understand that my ascension in the ranks was very fast, but the numbers didn't follow". While he was taken down in that fight by Luis Henrique, it's about the only time he's looked vulnerable in his UFC career thus far.

Speaking to WFAN's Outside the Cage, Ngannou discussed his bout with Miocic, then dropped a bomb for who he'd like to see next inside the UFC Octagon.
