UFC 260

The UFC will continue their trend of putting on massive UFC cards to open the year with UFC 260. We saw the return of Conor McGregor, Kamaru Usman, and three title fights headlined by Israel Adesanya and Jan Blachowicz. Now we get the heavyweight rematch everyone has been waiting for.

Stipe Miocic will be defending his UFC Heavyweight Championship for the first time since he put his trilogy with Daniel Cormier to bed. His opponent is a familiar foe in Francis Ngannou, a fighter Miocic beat in 2018. Stipe is the only man to ever beat Ngannou in the UFC.

The UFC will host UFC 260 as their third PPV of the year. The bouts are scheduled to take place in the smaller 35-foot cage.
