Saturday night, March 27, 2021, the UFC showcases what they are calling the “Undisputed Biggest, Undeniably Baddest Rematch’. It’s going to be an all out battle for the UFC Heavyweight Championship between fight veterans Stipe Miocic and Francis N’Gannou in the main event. The UFC 260 PPV (pay-per-view) event is being broadcast from the Apex Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Returning to the octagon for that main event, we have the two-time and current reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion, Stipe Miocic. He is entering the bout with a remarkable 20-3 record, after a seven-month break from UFC action, when he fought and defeated Daniel Cormier back-to-back. Stipe will be defending his title against arguably the hardest puncher in UFC history, the #1 ranked Heavyweight, ‘The Predator’ Francis N’Gannou – who’s entering the bout with his impressive, 15-3 record, on a four-fight win streak over the likes of Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Junior dos Santos, Cain Velasquez and Curtis Blaydes – all first round finishes in under a minute.
In the co-main event, we have a Welterweight tilt between ‘The Chosen One’ Tyron Woodley and ‘The Silent Assassin’ Vicente Luque. Woodley is on a three-fight losing streak to Covington, Burns and Usman. Luque is on a two-fight win streak, having brutally defeated both Randy Brown and Niko Price during the past year. He has only lost one of his last nine fights, which was via Unanimous Decision against Stephen Thompson back at UFC 244.
Also on the card, we have an exciting Featherweight bout taking place between fight veteran Thomas ‘Thominhas’ Almeida, with his storied 22-4 career record, on a three-fight losing streak, matched up against the up-and-comer ‘Sugar’ Sean O’Malley, sporting a 12-1 record (with only one loss since December, 2019). In addition to that, we have a fun match-up between Women’s Flyweights Gillian ‘The Savage’ Robertson and ‘Fear the’ Miranda Maverick. Maverick has won her last six bouts via submission, decision win, two wins via rear naked choke, another decision win and most recently a doctor stoppage due to a cut delivered in round 1 against Liana Jojua at UFC 254.
These bouts will have been preceded by our featured main card opener between Jamie Mullarkey and Khama Worthy and a five-bout undercard. What a wild night full of fights we have to share with you!
