UFC 260: Miocic vs. Ngannou 2 is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on March 27, 2021 at the UFC Apex facility in Enterprise, Nevada, part of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area, Maybe that footage will show up for a future pay-per-view (PPV) event / “Countdown” show, or maybe the two duke it out at the top of a “Fight Night” and we never see this half of their “Countdown.”
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 resolved on Saturday night at UFC 260 when heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic risks the gold against Francis Ngannou from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nev. Miocic and Ngannou conflicted somewhat more than three years prior at UFC 220 in January 2018 with Miocic ruling beginning to end to win a disproportionate choice.
Since their underlying excursion, Miocic has battled multiple times, winning two of those challenges against Daniel Cormier, including winning through consistent choice at UFC 252. The low maintenance fireman from Ohio feels Ngannou has improved and needs to remind individuals that he hasn’t lounged around and become complacent.
“It will not be nothing similar to the primary battle since he’s certainly improved, thus have I,” Miocic revealed to MMA Fighting. “A great deal of things will change. I’m attempting to make it a more uneven battle, and obviously, attempt to end it early, however he’s improved. The man hits hard, and it’s the heavyweight division, so anything can occur.
“He has an incredible mentor and an extraordinary group, and they’re certainly working with him, improving him. He’s certainly improved however so have I. I think whoever carries out their strategy the best will win. He’s unquestionably improved, but at the same time he has that one factor that everybody thinks he hits hard and he hits hard. You’ve recently had the opportunity to keep an eye out for it.”
Subsequent to losing to Miocic, Ngannou lost his next battle in a dull excursion to Derrick Lewis at UFC 226. From that point, Ngannou went on a dazzling run. He’s won his last four sessions by means of knockout in a consolidated season of two minutes and 42 seconds to acquire himself one more break at Miocic.
Has Ngannou adequately improved to have the option to oust Miocic? Or on the other hand does Miocic utilize his wrestling as he did in the main matchup and maintain a strategic distance from the hands of Ngannou to win indeed?
Here’s beginning and end you need to think about UFC 260: Stipe Miocic versus Francis Ngannou 2.
