UFC 260 live results: Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou updates, highlights and more
On Saturday at UFC 260 in Las Vegas, No. 1 contender Francis Ngannou (15-3, 11 KOs) finally gets another shot at the heavyweight title he failed to take from Stipe Miocic at UFC 220 on Jan. 20, 2018.
Ngannou went into that bout riding a six-fight winning streak in the UFC with five of those wins coming by knockout. Miocic, however, easily stifled Ngannou's offense over five rounds and won a unanimous decision to retain his belt and unofficial title of the baddest man on the planet.

Since their last meeting, Ngannou is 4-1 with four knockouts in the first round while Miocic went 2-1 in that same timeframe in his trilogy with Daniel Cormier. And although Miocic currently holds the UFC heavyweight record for most title defenses with four and already beat the challenger three years ago, he's currently a +120 underdog at BetMGM.
In the co-main event, Tyron Woodley looks to get back into the win column (and possibly save his UFC career) against rising contender Vicente Luque. The former welterweight champion is on a three fight losing skid with his last win coming by submission over Darren Till at UFC 228 on Sept. 8. 2018. Luque is 3-1 in his last four fights with three fight night bonuses including a Performance of the Night in his last outing, a second-round KO of Randy Brown.
