Heavyweights Francis Ngannou and Bojan Mihajlovic set to meet at UFC on Fox 20 in Chicago

By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

A heavyweight fight between Francis Ngannou and Bojan Mihajlovic is the latest addition to the UFC on Fox 20 event in Chicago this July, the UFC announced on Tuesday.

France’s Ngannou has been fairly impressive through two UFC appearances thus far, taking out both Luiz Henrique and Curtis Blaydes in back to back fights. The 29-year-old has won six straight fights overall to drive his record to 7-1. All seven of his career wins have come by (T)KO or submission.

36-year-old Serbian Bojan Mihajlovic makes his UFC debut in this matchup on the strength of a ten-fight winning streak. He lost the first three fights of his MMA career before beginning the run he brings with him into the Octagon. This was actually the fight he was supposed to have in April for his debut, but injury took him out of that event, leading to Blaydes stepping in against Ngannou.

UFC on Fox 20 hits The United Center in Chicago on July 23, headlined by the women’s bantamweight matchup between Holly Holm and Valentina Shevchenko.
