The UFC is back on pay-per-view Saturday with a big championship rematch at the top of the bill.

Here’s how to watch the Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou heavyweight title bout from Las Vegas.

Broadcast

UFC 260 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+. The early prelims kick off at 6:15 p.m. ET on ESPN+. Four more prelims air on ESPN at 8 p.m. And the main card airs on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

Main event: Stipe Miocic

Stipe Miocic

In the main event, heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic (20-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC) takes on challenger Francis Ngannou (15-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC). Miocic will be fighting in his eighth straight title bout. He won the belt with a first-round knockout of Fabricio Werdum in May 2016. He then defended it three straight times – a UFC heavyweight record – with knockouts of Alistair Overeem and Junior Dos Santos and a decision over Ngannou. In July 2018, he was upset by Daniel Cormier and lost the belt, but stopped Cormier 13 months later to recapture the title. In August 2020, he beat Cormier by decision in their trilogy fight – the the third straight time the two fought.

Main event: Francis Ngannou

Francis Ngannou

Ngannou was perfect in the UFC at 6-0 with six stoppages when he lost to Miocic at UFC 220. He followed up that setback with a decision loss to Derrick Lewis at UFC 226. But since then, he has been on a tear with four straight first-round knockouts. The longest of those fights went 71 seconds when he took out ex-champ Dos Santos in June 2019. He also stopped Curtis Blaydes in 45 seconds, ex-champ Cain Velasquez in 26 seconds and, most recently, Jairzinho Rozenstruik in 20 seconds at UFC 249 in May 2020.

Co-main event: Tyron Woodley

Tyron Woodley

The co-main event was supposed to be a featherweight title fight between champ Alexander Volkanovski and challenger Brian Ortega, but that bout was postponed this past Saturday when Volkanovski tested positive for COVID-19. Now former welterweight champ Tyron Woodley (19-6-1 MMA, 9-5-1 UFC) returns against Vicente Luque (19-7-1 MMA, 12-3 UFC). Woodley is stuck in the only losing skid of his career, and this past September it three fights when he was stopped by Colby Covington in the fifth round. Prior to that, he lost the 170-pound title to Kamaru Usman, then dropped a decision to Gilbert Burns in May 2020.

Co-main event: Vicente Luque

Vicente Luque

After a six-fight winning streak, Luque dropped a decision to Stephen Thompson in 2019. But in 2020, he bounced back with knockouts of Niko Price and Randy Brown, the latter of which won him his fourth performance bonus in six fights.

Of note, Miocic was the underdog to Ngannou the first time they fought, as well. Ngannou closed around a -190 favorite for that fight. Miocic also was the underdog in his second and third fights against Cormier – both of which he won.
