Following the spectacular UFC 260 pay-per-view event, professional fighters reacted to the Easter holiday that came one week after the heavyweight title changed hands.
In particular, the challenger Francis Ngannou seized the opportunity of a lifetime in his second crack at the title taking on the heavyweight king Stipe Miocic. In the end, the 34-year old African-born striker got the job done in the second round and truly lived up to his name “The Predator”. As a result, Ngannou captured the heavyweight title and knocked Miocic out in the second round with a hellacious series of punches.
With a rare off-weekend for the UFC, it gave fighters a chance to enjoy family and friends on Easter Sunday.
