Under main-eventet på UFC 220 kommer Stipe Miocic att försvara bältet mot Francis Ngannou. Ngannou har hittills i karriären avslutat alla sina vinster och lovar under telefonkonferensen inför galan att han kommer att göra detsamma mot Miocic.
When I go to my training camp, I train my conditioning, everything, I prepare [for] a regular fight, for the regular round fight. Even the fight against Alistair Overeem, I was already prepared for five rounds because I knew I was going to have Stipe after that. I think it’s going to be a long time before they really see that because on Jan. 20 I don’t see myself going [to the] third round, fourth round. I’m just going to finish Stipe in under two rounds.
Ngannou uttalar sig även om hur han har känt av pressen i tidigare matcher i jämförelse med nu.
I do embrace [the pressure], I think I had [more] pressure on my last fight against Alistair [Overeem] than I do for this one. As I said before, I couldn’t avoid [talking] about these two fights and I had that pressure for two fights. Now it’s only one fight. Now I’m more confident. I know I have everything to win this fight. It’s something that [I’ve dreamed] about my whole life. Now I get my mind set for that and we’re going to do it on Jan. 20.
UFC 220 kommer att gå av stapeln den 20:e januari på TD Garden i Boston, USA.
