A heavyweight bout between Francis Ngannou and Bojan Mihajlovic has been added to UFC on FOX 20, which takes place in Chicago on July 23 2016.
UFC officials announced the bout today.
Ngannou (7-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) is 2-0 inside the UFC with two stoppage victories. “The Predator” debuted at UFC Fight Night Orlando and starched Luis Henrique with a vicious uppercut in the second round, earning his first UFC win. In his second UFC outing, Ngannou faced highly touted prospect Curtis Blaydes. Ngannou landed hard shots throughout and hurt Blaydes numerous times before the doctor was forced to stop the fight at the end of the second round due to the swelling on Blaydes’ eye.
Mihajlovic (10-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) has had possibly one of the best career resurgences we could witness. The Serbian went 0-3 in his first three MMA bouts, but has won 10 straight since, picking up six stoppages along the way. Mihajlovic stopped Muhamad Mahmic in just under two minutes in his last bout.
UFC on FOX 20 takes place live from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois on July 23, 2016. The card is set to be headlined by a pivotal women’s bantamweight fight between former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm and Valentina Shevchenko.
