Dana White: UFC targets Stipe Miocic vs Francis Ngannou heavyweight title fight in April
The first three UFC events already have their own headliners, as Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier will headline UFC 257, on January 23. Additionally, UFC 258 will headline Kamaru Usman defending his welterweight title against Gilbert Burns on February 13, and UFC 259 will host a light heavyweight title fight between Jan Blachowicz and Yisrael Adesanya on March 6.

Now UFC 260, which is expected to take place sometime in April, could be the headliner. According to recent comments from UFC president Dana White during Q & A, the promotion is considering booking a heavyweight rematch between king of the division Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou a month later than originally expected.

Miocic originally defended his belt against Ngannou at UFC 220 in 2018. Since then, Stipe has gone on to lose, then win, and then defend his title against Daniel Cormier in a trilogy of title fights.

As for Ngannou, since his defeat to Miocic, he has scored an impressive 4-1 mark, including winning his last four matches by knockout in the first round. In fact, these wins took less than three minutes combined and that's why he was very vocal about the time it takes to move up in the rankings to face Miocic again. If the fight goes ahead, it will be 11 months since Ngannu last fought.

Of course, the winner of this title fight is expected to defend the 265-pound title against former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

UFC 257: Dan Hooker Promises to Break Michael Chandler's New UFC Toy in Five Minutes
Dan Hooker will face former Bellator MMA lightweight champion Michael Chandler in the octagon Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), they will meet in the co-main event of UFC 257, on January 23, 2021 at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

Hooker should not miss the chance to land a man who is probably already in contention for the title, as it would allow him to slip back into the championship race unnoticed.

And he is certainly happy to break the "new toy" of the UFC, while he has the opportunity.

"The danger is to get into the top five. If you put him up against anyone else in the UFC, like the top 50, then the top 30, then the top 20, then the top 15, then his chances of losing soar exponentially. So the faster they can get a title for him, the faster they can sell it, " Hooker said during a recent MMA Fighting interview.

Jon Jones ' move to Heavyweight
Jon Jones ' move to heavyweight is one of the biggest events of 2021. "Bones" has been a 205-pound champion for the better part of a decade. Now he'll dive right into the big guys competition, as Jones will likely be fighting the winner of Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou in his heavyweight debut. For the calculating Jones, this seems a risky move.

Jones is chasing rivals and titles that can really enhance his already incredible resume, but it definitely entails additional risk. We'll have to wait and see if Jones ' gamble with a second title pays off.

Dana White: McGregor - Poirier winner likely to get Title shot
At the moment, there is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight division. Because the current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has ended his career and is leaving UFC 29-0, 13-0. According to UFC president Dana White, what happens next at 155 pounds will depend on what comes out of his meeting with the Eagle in a couple of weeks on Fight Island.

” I'm getting on a plane on Monday and heading to Abu Dhabi, I don't know when Khabib will arrive there, but we'll meet him as soon as he arrives, " White said during a recent conversation with a journalist.

Meanwhile, the 155-pound division still has to move forward, and the big fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier, due to take place at UFC 257, on January 23, 2021, will likely determine the next contender for the title in this division.

” I don't know if they'll be ranked or something, but yes, whoever wins this fight will probably be next in line, " White added.

However, if Khabib decides to return for another fight, he has repeatedly stated that he is not interested in a rematch against Conor or Dustin, as he has already finished both of them.
