Miocic is considered by many to be the greatest heavyweight champion the UFC has ever had, having successfully defended the belt more than anyone else, including a record three consecutive defenses from 2016-18. Miocic has not fought since August 2020 when he defended the title against Daniel Cormier.
Ngannou is on a four-fight win streak with all four wins coming in the first round via knockout or TKO. None of those four fights have lasted more than 71 seconds. Despite having three losses in his career, Ngannou has never been knocked out or submitted with all three losses coming via decision. Ngannou’s last fight was in May 2020 when he defeated Jairzinho Rozenstruik in 20 seconds.
That fight and nine others are part of the entire card with the five-fight main card set to begin at 10 p.m. on ESPN+.
A planned co-main event bout for the Featherweight title featuring Alex Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega has been cancelled due to COVID-19.
