Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou brought a slugfest in their fight.
The showdown served as the main event of the UFC 260 pay-per-view event on Saturday night (March 27, 2021) from Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC Apex facility.
As seen in the fight, Francis landed a clean right hand in the first round then stuffed a takedown by Stipe and landed some hard shots on the ground. The finish came in the second round as Francis stunned him with a jab then went after him only to have Stipe fire back and hurt Francis. However, when Stipe came to step up for another shot, Francis caught him with a left hook for the win.
Their first fight took place on January 20, 2018 at the UFC 220 pay-per-view event from TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The fight got a lot of promotion, but Miocic made it known that he felt disrespected because he never received the same amount of support Ngannou did from the promotion.
Miocic dominated Ngannou for the entire fight, which went 25 minutes and saw Stipe dominate his opponent with takedowns. As a result, Stipe won the fight to break the record for most consecutive title defenses for the heavyweight championship.
