UFC 220: Miocic vs Ngannou Betting Odds and Predictions
The Initial UFC PPV of the year goes in Boston when UFC 220 Happens into the TD Garden on January 20.
The surface of the card includes both title fights, as Stipe Miocic tries to derail the hype train of Francis Ngannou and Daniel Cormier looks to establish there are amounts vs Volkan Oezdemir.
After those two occasions, many casual fans probably will not know another fighter on this card. Luckily, I do and I am here to help you understand the fights and maybe pad your bankroll.
Miocic has built his match around his world-class boxing skills. He constantly probes with his long jab, as he waits for his opportunity to counter. That being said, Miocic might be better if he is fighting in a phone booth with more power in his short punches than many humans have, period. In addition, the reigning champion is a former D1 wrestler that has adapted his personality excellently to MMA. Ordinarily, these skills are used defensively but Miocic may also use them offensively to wear down opponents. In case Miocic has one big negative, it is his defense. He has a terrible tendency to have a hit to give a hit.
Ngannou is the epitome of physical development. “The Predator” is a mountain of a man with an 83-inch reach and maybe the toughest natural punching power I’ve ever seen. A lot of people point to his power and natural athleticism but Ngannou’s consciousness and sense for when to counter-strike is that of someone well beyond his years. The grappling game remains raw but his natural ability helps him bully his opponents from the clinch. The real question is whether Ngannou has the ability to get from his back if he has pulled down against an elite wrestler.
If you should ask me who the fighter is, I’d say Miocic. And I despise not financing a winner as an underdog. However, his inclination to carry unnecessary punches is a recipe for failure vs Ngannou. One minor error by Miocic means this fight is over and that seems just like a”if” rather than an”if.”
