Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight title contender Francis Ngannou will try, once again, to overthrow reigning division champion Stipe Miocic in the upcoming UFC 260 pay-per-view (PPV) headliner on March 27 at APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The promotion recently released the official trailer for UFC 260, claiming “the foundations of the Octagon will shake” when these two trade leather for a second time.
Miocic (20-3) dominated Ngannou (15-3) went they first went to war at UFC 220 roughly three years back (Jan. 2018), simply because “The Predator” — who built his career on early knockouts — had no answer for the champ’s wrestling-based attack.
Since they last met, Miocic went 2-1 in a trilogy opposite Daniel Cormier. As for Ngannou, he stumbled against Derrick Lewis his next time out before rediscovering his decapitating ways, laying waste to four straight opponents by violent KO.
In the UFC 260 co-main event, defending featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski puts his 145-pound strap on the line against top contender Brian Ortega. In addition, former light heavyweight title contender Anthony Smith makes his return against Jimmy Crute.
