Francis Ngannou will not have to wait long for his chance to fight heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic as the title fight has just been booked for UFC 220 on January 20th in Boston.

20 at TD Garden in Boston and airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

US Assured Pakistan Of 'No Indian Military Role In Afghanistan'
Pakistan has repeatedly expressed its serious concerns regarding India's role in Afghanistan to the U.S. and Afghan leadership, according to reports.

Including a savage victory against decorated heavyweight Alistair Overeem at UFC 218. He defeated Overeem via first-round KO at UFC 203 last September, before stopping former champion Junior dos Santos with a first-round TKO at UFC 211 in May. His last four victories have all come in the first round, all ending within the first two minutes.

Swiftly, Miocic fired off a tweet reminding the 31-year old Ngannou who is the current UFC heavyweight champion. The last time it happened was on December 27, 2008, at UFC 92, where 205-pound champion Forrest Griffin lost the title to Rashad Evans via TKO, while interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira was stopped for the first time in his career by Frank Mir.

Angels trade prospect to get more money to pursue Shohei Ohtani
Banuelos, 21, hit.236 with four home runs in 36 games for the Class A Everett (Wash.) AquaSox after signing in July. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 draft out of Long Beach State and signed for a $300,000 bonus.

There is perhaps the expectancy that a fight between Joshua and Ngannou could produce a similar level of interest, although the British fighter has so far not taken any notice of champion Miocic's recent challenge towards him. Miocic also enters the fight on a five fight winning streak and he hasn't suffered a defeat in over three years. It was Miocic's second successful title defense.

UFC commentator Joe Rogan was there in Detroit for UFC 218 and saw Ngannou's ferocious KO cageside and spoke with Bellator heavyweight Justin Wren about the potential of the native of Cameroon on Rogan's JRE MMA Show podcast.

Padilla said she was woken up at approximately 4 a.m.by the Los Angeles County Fire Department's orders to evacuate immediately. At about 7 a.m. the reported size of the fire was 50 acres, but it may have grown significantly since then.

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