For his big return to the competition, Francis Ngannou will try to take his revenge against Stipe Miocic, on March 28 in Las Vegas, United States. The Cameroonian lost to the world heavyweight champion in 2018 and will be keen to get his revenge in this rematch.
It’s time for Francis Ngannou to get his revenge. Defeated by unanimous decision in January 2018 by the Croatian-born American, Stipe Miocic, already champion, the « Predator » is once again entitled to the title fight. At UFC 260, which takes place on Saturday night (March 27) and Sunday (March 28), the two men meet for a highly anticipated rematch in Las Vegas, USA.
Dominated in wrestling in his first title shot loss to heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, Cameroon’s Francis Ngannou decided to remedy that by enlisting the help of Kamaru Usman in his corner for UFC 260. The UFC welterweight champion will not only be in ‘The Predator’s’ corner on the night of the rematch with Miocic, but he is also involved in his preparation to help him progress in the fight.
« Yeah, so Kamaru Usman will be in my corner for that fight, » revealed Ngannou. « It’s good to have him here, to help me with the fight, right now you need everything. Basically, he’s going to be in my corner and it’s good for him to train where I am and bring his own strengths into this game. It’s a very decisive moment before the fight, so it’s very important to engage with him. He’ll be in my corner helping me with my fight, which is great, » he added.
