Without a UFC event this weekend, we get to look into our crystal ball and have an early look at some futures odds, specifically the two title fights scheduled for UFC 220 (Jan. 20th, Boston). I am literally wearing my wizard hat now [editor’s note: he actually is] and that I must be, because we’re on a magic roster people! Last week, a couple of the golden underdogs from my Best Bets for UFC 219 cashed in. Thanks, Carla Esparza and Neil Magny!
If you are not excited about UFC 220, then you have no pulse. You are literally dead and needs to be packed with ice. How can you not be stoked to see one of the most anticipated heavyweight championship fights in UFC history? The outcome, history will be made.
Stipe Miocic will soon be defending his heavyweight crown from rising celebrity Francis Ngannou and I’m pretty sure someone is going to be looking up in the lights when it’s all said and done.
Also on the card, Daniel Cormier will be defending his light-heavyweight title against hard-hitting Volkan Oezdemir. Can we see an upset and the crowning of a new light-heavyweight king? Or will Cormier once again show us why he is among the greatest to ever step foot into an Octagon?
