A heavyweight title fight rematch between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou headlined tonight’s UFC 260 pay-per-view event in Las Vegas.

The pair had initially collided at UFC 220 in January of 2018, with Miocic retaining his heavyweight title by way of unanimous decision.

Since his first encounter with ‘The Predator’, Stipe Miocic went on to have three consecutive fights with Daniel Cormier. After losing his title to ‘DC‘ at UFC 226, Miocic had rebounded to earn back-to-back victories over Cormier in their most recent contests.


Meanwhile, Francis Ngannou (16-3 MMA) had put together a 4-1 record since his first fight with Stipe Miocic. ‘The Predator’ had entered UFC 260 on a four-fight winning streak, with all four of those wins coming by way of first round knockout. In his most previous Octagon appearance at UFC 249, Ngannou required just 20-seconds to dispose of top contender Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

Tonight’s UFC 260 main event proved to be a wild fight. The first round was full of tension as Francis Ngannou continued to utilize forward pressure to backdown and smother Stipe Miocic. Then, in the second round, ‘The Predator’ found a home for his big right hand and sent the champ down to the canvas. Stipe would return to his feet swinging punches but was ultimately put down for good just seconds later.
