UFC returns to pay-per-view this Saturday, March 27, with a UFC Heavyweight Championship bout featuring Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou.
Miocic, who has cemented his status as the greatest heavyweight in UFC history now after consecutive victories against Daniel Cormier, will defend his title against Ngannou for a second time. The two clashed back in January 2018 and Miocic walked away with a decisive victory, winning a unanimous decision after controlling Ngannou on the mat for the majority of the fight.
