As the heavyweight championship holds special prestige in the UFC, everybody seems to be buzzing at a higher energy level. The commentators too are pumped up under the brightest of lights. Also, the fact that two fighters like ‘The Predator’ and Miocic are involved makes it even more intriguing.

The night has already had some spectacular finishes as the main card started with a 46-second knockout of Khama Worthy by Jamie Mullarkey. Also, Miranda Maverick earned a decision over Gillian Robertson. Could the fans see one more in the main event?

Who gets it done in the UFC 260 main event: Stipe Miocic or Francis Ngannou?

Miocic and Ngannou will engage in a rematch as the former defended his belt against ‘The Predator‘ at UFC 220 in 2018. The Cleveland firefighter controlled the majority of the fight last time, but Ngannou has finished his last 4 fights under a combined time of under 3 minutes.

The consensus belief is that Ngannou has improved massively since that fight. But it remains to be seen if that’s the case. Of course, he has his knockout prowess, but should the fight go long, Miocic will have a significant advantage.
