Francis Ngannou fights for the UFC heavyweight championship title this weekend at UFC 220 in Boston, MA. Leading up to this moment, the France-based Cameroonian, has beaten six other UFC heavyweights, stopping each with either punches or a submission.

Standing between the 31-year-old and a gold belt is Stipe Miocic, who has won his last five contests, stopping each with punches. In the build-up to the heavyweight clash both men have engaged on social media (and in press conferences).

When asked by Bloody Elbow if he enjoyed the verbal sparring with Miocic, Ngannou paused. Then stated, “I never talked to him. I just answer. I never talked to him.”

On whether Ngannou would engage with his opponent in a face-off, like he did with previous opponent Alistair Overeem, the title challenger was coy. “I don’t know,” he responded. “We’re going to see what’s going to happen. I’ll say what I feel.”

Ngannou’s path to UFC stardom has been unique. Ngannou left Batié, Cameroon – where he worked for a long time as a sand miner – for Paris, France; searching for a better life. In Europe, Ngannou suffered homelessness and isolation before being welcomed at the MMA Factory gym in 2013.

Ngannou said that beating Miocic on Saturday night would represent the closing of a chapter in his remarkable life.

The event is on pay-per-view, beginning at 10pm ET. UFC 220’s co-main event features a light heavyweight title fight between incumbent Daniel Cormier and challenger Volkan Oezdemir.
