Stipe Miocic (20-3) is the UFC Heavyweight Champion and the third ranked fighter in the Men’s Pound-For-Pound rankings, and this tough title defense is business as usual for the big man from Ohio. He won the title for the first time in 2016, knocking out Fabricio Werdum in the first round. Since then, Miocic has fought nothing but big names with successful defences against Alistair Overeem, Junior dos Santos, and Ngannou. He may have lost his belt in 2018 to Daniel Cormier, but he won it back in their rematch just one year later. Miocic is coming off of a win in the trilogy fight against Cormier, where his smothering style of ground work ended D.C.’s career.

The first Miocic vs. Ngannou fight was a dominant performance by the champion, who used different styles to give the challenger fits. Miocic avoided trading strikes with his powerful opponent, and instead focused on takedowns and wrestling to wear Ngannou down. We’ve seen in the past that Stipe has knockout power, but if he can execute the same game plan as last time it will be a long night for Ngannou.

Francis “The Predator” Ngannou (15-3) is the number one ranked UFC heavyweight contender, and he’s planning to finally achieve the ultimate success that he missed out on years ago. He started out 6-0 in the UFC with two Performance of the Night awards and victories over fighters like Curtis Blaydes, Anthony Hamilton and Alistair Overeem. Then came his first title fight against Miocic, and recently Ngannou said that he didn’t recognize his style or emotion in the ring. He wasn’t able to keep Miocic at a distance or land the type of power punches that made him a star.

Since dealing with back to back losses to Miocic and Derrick Lewis, Ngannou rebuilt himself in four huge fights. He’s notched four straight victories by first round knockout over top ranked opponents including Junior dos Santos and Jairzinho Rozenstruik. Ngannou also says he’s been working on his wrestling and takedown defenses. Saturday will show if he’s changed enough to force a different type of fight, but it’s clear that Ngannou has the power to end this fight at any moment.
