Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou will square off for a second time with heavyweight gold on the line at UFC 260.

UFC president Dana White confirmed the pairing during the UFC on ABC 1 post-fight press conference on Saturday. UFC 260 takes place on March 27 at an as yet to be announced location and will see Alexander Volkanovski defend his featherweight crown against Brian Ortega in the co-main event.

Miocic earned a convincing five-round verdict against Ngannou during his first title reign at UFC 220 in January 2018. The Ohio-based firefighter then went 2-1 in a trilogy with Daniel Cormier, concluding that rivalry with a decision win at UFC 252 this past August. Miocic has won eight of his last nine UFC bouts overall.

Ngannou is currently on a four-bout winning streak in which he has finished all four of his foes inside of a round. Most recently, “The Predator” knocked out Jairzinho Rozenstruik in 20 seconds at UFC 249 in May 2020.
