He'll face by far the biggest test of his MMA career when he meets similarly surging champion Miocic, who was last seen stopping former champion Junior dos Santos at May's UFC 211 from Dallas, Texas.

In the co-main event of UFC 218 at Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit on Saturday, December 2, Ngannou earned a vicious first-round knockout of former top contender Alistair Overeem with a left hook that landed flush on the jaw.
