Some things are worth waiting for, and UFC 260 might prove just that.
More than three years since their first fight, UFC heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic squares off against No. 1 ranked heavyweight Francis Ngannou this weekend with the UFC heavyweight championship on the line.
In their first fight, Miocic exhibited his world-class wrestling ability to ground Ngannou and mitigate Ngannou’s devastating power, defending his belt in a unanimous decision against the red-hot Ngannou.
Ngannou enters his rematch with Miocic on a four-fight winning streak, finding his knockout power again after back-to-back unanimous decision losses to Miocic and Derrick Lewis, reclaiming his UFC No. 1 ranking in the process.
Some are wondering how much Miocic has left as a UFC fighter; now 38, Miocic is entering the twilight of his career and has said he’s unsure if he’s going to fight until he’s 40 years old.
The two heavyweight titans meet in the octagon, a rematch three years in the making. Here’s what you need to know about UFC 260:
