The UFC heavyweight rematch we've all been waiting for takes place this weekend.
Regarded as the marginal favourite heading into the bout, Ngannou was riding high after several ferocious knockouts including one that left Alistair Overeem in a state of suspended animation for a short spell.
However, Miocic wisely used his vastly superior ground game to exhaust The Predator and secure a hard fought victory.
It’s been a rollercoaster couple of years for Miocic, who now looks to continue his second reign as heavyweight champ at Ngannou’s expense.
On another hot streak, Ngannou is coming into this with four more KOs to his name. He has been working diligently on his grappling this time and will hit the Octagon as a considerably more well-rounded fighter.
Ngannou has even secured the help of welterweight champ Kamaru Usman, who will be in his corner for the fight.
