UFC 260: Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou 2 live updates, results, highlights from the full card

The heavyweights clash in their highly-anticipated rematch from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

Francis Ngannou has been on an absolute tear, having produced four straight first-round knockouts totaling just two minutes and 42 seconds. 

"The Predator" will look to prove that he's championship material Saturday night when he faces heavyweight titleholder Stipe Miocic at UFC 260. The highly-anticipated rematch will take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and live on pay-per-view.

Miocic generated six takedowns to pave the way toward a unanimous decision title defense victory over Ngannou back at UFC 220 in January 2018. Since then, the 38-year-old Miocic (20-3) recovered from a loss to Daniel Cormier to defeat DC in their rematch and trilogy bout roughly a year apart from 2019 and 2020, respectively. Meanwhile, Ngannou seemed to still be showing effects from the loss to Miocic, having dropped a unanimous decision to Derrick Lewis nearly six months later.

Since then, though, the 34-year-old Ngannou (15-3) demolished Curtis Blaydes, Cain Velasquez, Junior dos Santos, and Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Despite those wins coming by way of first-round finishes, Ngannou vows that he has improved as a fighter. Miocic has doubled down on sharpening his own tools.

Will Ngannou show that growth and capture the crown in the biggest feat of his mixed martial arts career, or will Miocic reinforce why he's the greatest heavyweight champion in UFC history?
