Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently hosted a special pre-fight press conference (watch it) for the upcoming UFC 260: Pay-Per-View (PPV) “Miocic vs Ngannou 2” event, which will take place on March 27, 2021, inside UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Center stage were Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou who will face off for the heavyweight title for the second time. Miocic already has a victory over “The Predator”, beating him at UFC 220 in January 2018. Now the reigning 265-pound champion is looking to put Ngannou in his rearview mirror – as he did with Daniel Cormier – a once and for all.
The two big men were the only ones to receive media love today due to the fact that the PPV event lost its original main co-event between featherweight champion Alex Volkanovski and Brian Ortega due to the COVID-19. The revamped co-headliner will now feature a welterweight scrap between Tyron Woodley and Vicente Luque.
In another main card action, Sean O’Malley will look to return to the winning column when he takes on Thomas Almeida, who is currently in the midst of his career-worst losing streak with three straight losses.
