This is the end … Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fans have dreamed of this moment.
No, this isn’t “Skyfall,” it’s the rematch between Stipe Miocic and Francis Nganou for the promotion’s Heavyweight title, which headlines UFC 260 tonight (Sat., March 27, 2021) inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Since Miocic reclaimed (and retained) his title, Ngannou has put more people in the ground than pallbearers. Fans of professional violence have clamored for this rematch, which will lead to an eventual fight with Jon Jones. And that’s a little weird because usually it’s the challenger having to fight for the right to face the champion and not the other way around.
Nevertheless, we have a card that is a Frankenstein monster devised by Sean Shelby, Mick Maynard and the man who dared to defy science and do the dumbest thing in Jacksonville since Jason Mendoza died, Dana White.
But, don’t worry kids, we’re covering the fun and face punching tonight from the studio and we can promise one thing: someone is going to be very mad and/or very drunk ... and that will be me.
