The heavyweight title rematch between champion Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou is on.

UFC president Dana White confirmed at Saturday’s UFC on ABC 1 post-fight news conference that Miocic (20-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) vs. Ngannou (15-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) has been finalized to headline UFC 260 in March.

After Miocic earned a unanimous decision win over Ngannou in their first meeting at UFC 220, he has since gone on to have a trilogy with Daniel Cormier, winning two of those three bouts.

Ngannou, meanwhile, is on a four-fight winning streak, all of which have come by first-round knockout.

The latest UFC 260 lineup includes:

  • Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou – for heavyweight title

  • Alexander Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega – for featherweight title

  • Jimmy Crute vs. Johnny Walker

  • Modestas Bukauskas vs. Michal Oleksiejczuk
