Alistair Overeem, Francis Ngannou To Fight At UFC 218


Alistair Overeem and Francis Ngannou are finally going to face off in the octagon as the two fighters, who have trash talked one another on social media, will do battle at UFC 218 in December.

Overeem (43-15), 37, is coming off a majority decision win over former champion Fabricio Werdum in July while Ngannou (10-1), 31, hasn’t fought since a first-round TKO over Andrei Arlovski in January.

It is believed that the winner of the fight will then earn a shot at UFC title holder Stipe Miocic. Miocic hasn’t fought since UFC 211 in May.
