Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou run it back for the UFC heavyweight title on Saturday night in the main event of UFC 260.
The baddest man in the UFC will be determined on Saturday night at UFC 260 when heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic puts the gold on the line against Francis Ngannou from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nev. Miocic and Ngannou clashed a little more than three years ago at UFC 220 in January 2018 with Miocic dominating from start-to-finish to win a lopsided decision.
Since their initial outing, Miocic has fought three times, winning two of those contests against Daniel Cormier, including winning via unanimous decision at UFC 252. The part-time firefighter from Ohio feels Ngannou has improved and wants to remind people that he hasn’t sat around and rested on his laurels.
“It won’t be nothing like the first fight because he’s definitely gotten better, and so have I,” Miocic told MMA Fighting. “A lot of things are going to change. I’m trying to make it a more one-sided fight, and of course, try to end it early, but he’s gotten better. The man hits hard, and it’s the heavyweight division, so anything can happen.
“He’s got a great coach and a great team, and they’re definitely working with him, making him better. He’s definitely gotten better but so have I. I think whoever implements their game plan the best is going to win. He’s definitely gotten better, but he’s also got that one factor that everyone thinks he hits hard and he does hit hard. You’ve just got to watch out for it.”
After losing to Miocic, Ngannou lost his next fight in a lackluster outing to Derrick Lewis at UFC 226. From there, Ngannou went on a stunning run. He’s won his last four bouts via knockout in a combined time of two minutes and 42 seconds to earn himself another crack at Miocic.
Has Ngannou improved enough to be able to dethrone Miocic? Or does Miocic use his wrestling as he did in the first matchup and avoid the hands of Ngannou to win once again?
