UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will return to action against Francis Ngannou at March 27th's UFC 260 in a rematch of their one-sided clash from January 2018.
This will be Miocic's first fight since defeating Daniel Cormier last August to finish off their trilogy while Ngannou is riding a four-fight win streak, all by first round knockout or TKO. His total cage time during those four fights is under three minutes.
In their first meeting at UFC 220 in Boston, Miocic (20-3) dominated Ngannou (15-3) en route to a unanimous decision which snapped Ngannou's ten fight win streak at the time. Miocic is a two-time UFC heavyweight champion with four successful title defenses under his belt.
UFC 260 (location TBA) is also expected to feature a co-main event of featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega. The champion (22-1) will be looking for the second defense of his title while Ortega (15-1-0-1) is coming off a dominant win over "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung last October.
