Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou will battle for the UFC's heavyweight title at UFC 260 on March 27, the company announced Saturday.
Ngannou (15-3) gets his shot at the belt after becoming the No. 1 heavyweight contender. Meanwhile, Miocic (20-3) looks to complete a second consecutive title defense after back-to-back victories over Daniel Cormier.
Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega will reportedly face off for the featherweight title in a co-main event bout.
Ngannou and Miocic previously fought at UFC 220 in January 2018, and Miocic retained his heavyweight championship via unanimous decision. The win set the record for the most consecutive heavyweight defenses in UFC history at three. He would go on to lose the title to Cormier in his next bout at UFC 226, regaining it in the rematch in August 2019.
Now Ngannou gets another shot at the champ and a chance to rewrite his narrative.
The Cameroonian has won four straight matches since November 2018, all by way of first-round knockout. No fight lasted longer than 71 seconds.
Ngannou's last win saw him defeat Jairzinho Rozenstruik in just 20 seconds. That made him the top heavyweight challenger once again.
Volkanovski (22-1), meanwhile, will attempt a second straight title defense after two consecutive wins over Max Holloway. Ortega (15-1), the No. 2-ranked featherweight, gets his second title shot in his last three fights after falling to Holloway at UFC 231 in 2018.
