UFC President Dana White has no doubt that reigning UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic, who will defend his title against Francis Ngannou on March 27 at UFC 260 in Las Vegas, is already the greatest heavyweight of all time.
“I don’t know if this is the greatest rematch we have had, but this is definitely one of the most important UFC heavyweight title fights,” said organization chief Dana White in an interview with BT Sport.
“First of all, Stipe Miocic has already established himself as the greatest heavyweight of all time, but if he can beat Francis Ngannou again, it will be the last jewel in the crown to crown his amazing career.”
The head of the UFC also confirmed that the winner of this match will face former UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones.
“Yes, the winner will fight Jon Jones.”
Recall that in January 2018, Stipe Miocic successfully defended his UFC heavyweight title by defeating Francis Ngannou by unanimous decision over five rounds.
