UFC 220: Miocic vs Ngannou Betting Odds and Predictions
The Initial UFC PPV of the year goes down in Boston when UFC 220 takes into the TD Garden on January 20.
The top of the card includes the two name conflicts, as Stipe Miocic attempts 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 likely will not understand another fighter with this card. Fortunately, I do and I am here to help you understand the fights and possibly pad your bankroll.
Miocic has built his game around his world-class boxing abilities. He constantly probes together with his long jab, as he waits for his opportunity to counter. That having been said, Miocic might be better when he’s fighting in a phone booth with more power in his brief punches than many humans have, period. Additionally, the reigning champion is a former D1 wrestler that has adapted his personality excellently to MMA. Ordinarily, these abilities are used defensively but Miocic will also use them offensively to wear down opponents. In case Miocic has one enormous drawback, it is his defense. He’s got a terrible tendency to take a hit to provide a hit.
Ngannou is the epitome of physical development. “The Predator” is a mountain of a guy with an 83-inch reach and maybe the toughest natural punching power I’ve ever noticed. A good deal of people point to his ability and natural athleticism but Ngannou’s awareness and sense for when to counter-strike is that of somebody well beyond his years. The grappling game is still raw but his natural power helps him bully his rivals from the clinch. The real question is whether Ngannou has the ability to get off of his back when he has taken down against an elite wrestler.
If you were to ask me who the better fighter is, I’d say Miocic. And I hate not backing a winner as an underdog. However, his tendency to carry unnecessary punches is a recipe for failure vs Ngannou. 1 minor mistake by Miocic signifies this fight is finished and that seems just like a”if” instead of an”if.”
