Ngannou vs Velasquez Headlines Phoenix

One of the greatest heavyweights of all-time makes his return to the Octagon on February 17, as two-time UFC champion Cain Velasquez battles feared knockout artist Francis Ngannou in a five-round showdown at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.

The card airs live on ESPN.

Back in action for the first time since his Performance of the Night finish of Travis Browne in 2016, Velasquez is hungry to regain his title in 2019, but first he has to vanquish Ngannou, whose list of knockouts includes victories over Alistair Overeem, Andrei Arlovski and Curtis Blaydes.
