Stipe Miocic Explains ‘Awkward’ Face Off with Francis Ngannou Ahead of UFC 220

Stipe Miocic isn't a big fan of the customary face offs

Count Stipe Miocic as one fighter who isn’t trying to figure out what’s going on in his opponents’ heads ahead of squaring off in the Octagon.

In fact, the reigning UFC heavyweight champion says face offs are just “awkward as s–t” including his recent stare down with challenger Francis Ngannou ahead of UFC 220 this weekend.

Miocic also addresses the press conference where it seemed like Ngannou was getting the lion’s share of the attention and whether or not it bothers him that the UFC doesn’t promote him more.
