UFC president Dana White confirmed Saturday that heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will rematch Francis Ngannou at UFC 260 in March.
Miocic (20-3-0), 38, will look to add another victory over Ngannou (15-3-0), 34, who has won impressively four times since losing to Miocic at UFC 220 in January 2018 and Derrick Lewis at UFC 226 in July.

Miocic defeated Daniel Cormier by decision last August at UFC 252 to cement himself in the eyes of many critics as the GOAT UFC heavyweight.
