The first win over Ngannou was Miocic’s third successful title defense. At UFC 226 Miocic was dethroned suffering a knockout loss to Daniel Cormier. A year later, at UFC 241 Miocic evened the score and took back the belt with by fourth round knockout win. The trilogy concluded at UFC 252 with Miocic winning by unanimous decision.
The event will be a championship double header as Alexander Volkanovski defends the UFC featherweight champion against Brian “T-City” Ortega.
