At UFC 252, Stipe Miocic retained the UFC heavyweight title over Daniel Cormier in the third and final meeting between the two men. The fight would also end up being DC's final fight, as he announced his retirement from the sport.
Stipe Miocic will be defending the UFC heavyweight title this Saturday at UFC 260
Stipe Miocic will be putting his UFC heavyweight title on the line this weekend against Francis Ngannou. The pair will collide in a rematch from 2018 and Miocic will aim to get his hand raised once again inside the UFC Apex.
That being said, 'The Predator' is heading into the fight as the favorite, despite losing the first bout against Miocic. A win over Miocic this Saturday will definitely be historic for Ngannou, who will also have the reigning UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman, in his corner this weekend.
