Stipe Miocic, the former UFC heavyweight champion, recently shared his prediction for the highly anticipated matchup between Francis Ngannou and Tyson Fury. While Miocic believes that Ngannou doesn’t win on paper, he acknowledges that anything can happen in a fight and that Ngannou’s power makes him a formidable opponent.
Miocic and Ngannou have faced off twice before, with Miocic emerging victorious both times. Their first encounter took place at UFC 220 in 2018, where Miocic dominated Ngannou over five rounds. This defeat marked the beginning of a losing streak for Ngannou, who went on to suffer another loss to Derrick Lewis in his next fight.
Despite these setbacks, Ngannou made an impressive comeback, securing four consecutive first-round knockouts and earning a rematch with Miocic at UFC 260 in 2021. In a stunning turn of events, Ngannou knocked out Miocic in the second round, claiming the heavyweight title. He defended the title once against Ciryl Gane before vacating it to pursue other opportunities.
This landmark fight with Tyson Fury is a result of Ngannou’s desire to seek more equitable deals with other promotions. The clash between the two heavyweights is highly anticipated, with fans eager to see how Ngannou’s power matches up against Fury’s boxing skills.
