Miocic vs. Ngannou 2 will take place March 27th, 2021 at UFC 260. Venue is TBD.
Last we saw Miocic, he defended his UFC Heavyweight title on August 15th by defeating Daniel Cormier for the second time in three fights. Miocic beat Ngannou in January of 2018 to defend his belt by unanimous decision. It was Miocic’s third straight title defense. Ngannou is the last fighter outside of Daniel Cormier who Miocic has fought.
Ngannou is dangerous. He can end a fight with one punch. However, he gets gassed very quickly. One of the reason’s Miocic defeated Ngannou the first time around is he survived the first round and leaned on Ngannou throughout the fight when he tired.
Either way, this is going to be one hell of a blockbuster fight in March.
I want to see Stipe defend his belt for a new record, breaking his old record. If Jon Jones wants to fuck around too he’ll get wrecked.
Yea, Stipe is boring and doesn’t have a fake WWE persona.
Stipe is a firefighter who helps people for a living, is very sportsmanlike (speaking very positively about his opponents), and creates zero drama or controversy.
He’s kind of like Georges St Pierre in the way he handles himself (and that’s another guy Dana White hates).
If American capitalism got raped a snake, and shit out a baby, it would be Dana White lol.
Dana has ALWAYS wanted Stipe to lose every single fight along the way so that’s nothing new. Last time Stipe fought Francis it was the same thing, Dana and everyone wanted Francis to win then too.
perfect analysis of how Dana does business. He wants the sizzle with his steak. Jones may be the best pound for pound fighter ever, with his athleticism, length, strength, and dynamism. Ngannou has the bull like power, one punch knockout ability, and the cartoon character physique. Stipe is sound, tough, resilient, and just wins. No nonsense, blue collar, get the job done and cash his cheque. Also, Stipe won’t blow smoke up Dana’s ass like the other fighters and Dana would love to see him fail. Dana wants the Hollywood champ, not the People’s champ.
They’re already hyping up a Bones vs Ngannou fight, lol.
All these articles online about Bones gaining weight and posting photos, with Ngannou and him going back and forth. Perfect next match if Ngannou wins the title.
Dana desperately wants Stipe to lose.
Jon Jones or Tyson Fury.
Those are the only two matches Stipe should ever do after this one.
If he somehow loses to Ngannou, he should just retire because Dana won’t give him a chance to get back his title. He’ll set up a Bones vs Ngannou match (and have Stipe face a few other heavyweights while those two do a trilogy fight).
There is a big dropoff with the remaining heavyweight fighters after Ngannou.
Guys like Curtis Blaydes, Derrick Lewis, Alistair Overeem, etc…would be just a waste of time to fight.
If Stipe wins, he should push for the Tyson Fury superfight (if there is any chance of that happening) so he can cash in and retire.
Otherwise, fighting Bones would be great to watch. Anything else is pointless.
In other news Stipe Miocic is set to fight the Frenchman Ngannou next in March.
Croatian handball team beat France today 28:20, the french kept it close up to halftime but the french then fell apart. Croatia will next play France on Monday.
There’s no one left to beat for Stipe, he’s already beaten pretty much everyone in the top 10 so unless he were to fight total n00bcannons, every match will be a rematch after some point.
I don’t really follow this sport besides the headlines. Can someone please explain why there are so many “re-matches”?
Francis has improved so will be a tough fight for sure but Stipe hopefully has the smarts to win like last time
