Stipe Miocic-Francis Ngannou rematch set to headline UFC 260

The UFC heavyweight championship will be on the line on March 27.

A rematch between champion Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou will headline UFC 260, the promotion announced Saturday night. The co-main event will feature UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski against Brian Ortega.

The location for UFC 260 has yet to be announced, but sources told ESPN the fight is expected to take place in Las Vegas.

Miocic defeated Ngannou via unanimous decision at UFC 220 in January 2018.

Ngannou (15-3) has won four fights in a row, all by first-round stoppage. Miocic (20-3) has won two straight since losing the belt to Daniel Cormier two years ago. He defeated Cormier in a trilogy fight in August.
