Francis Ngannou to Throw Hands With Alistair Overeem Next

Francis Ngannou to Throw Hands With Alistair Overeem Next”

A highly ranked heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Francis Ngannou has been added to UFC 218 on December 2 in Detroit.

Alistair Overeem has won two in a row, and six of his last seven fights.

The event will take place at Little Caesars Arena on December 2nd, no main event has been announced for the card.

While Ngannou publicly pushed for a fight with Miocic, who hasn't fought since May and has been petitioning for a new deal, a victory over Overeem (43-15) would likely put him on the doorstep. "The Predator" is coming off a quick stoppage win over Andrei Arlovski, which moved Ngannou's UFC record to 5-0 and his overall record to 10-1.

With UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic's contract status still uncertain, the promotion announced an attractive bout on Wednesday which could produce the next in line for his title. He was scheduled to face former champion Junior dos Santos in September, but the bout fell through when dos Santos was flagged for a potential anti-doping violation.

Ngannou expressed earlier this month he preferred to fight Miocic to Overeem. The bout is likely to put the victor in title contention for Demetrious Johnson's UFC Flyweight Championship.

Information from ESPN Africa reporter Francis Okupa was used in this report.
