UFC 260 went down tonight and they crowned a new champion at the event. Stipe Miocic walked into the event as UFC Heavyweight Champion, but that changed by the end of the night.

Francis Ngannou toppled Miocic to become the first-ever African UFC Heavyweight Champion. He won via knockout in the second round

During the second round, Ngannou opened with some leg kicks before he nailed Miocic with a left hook. Then he scored a knockdown with a straight left hand. After Miocic stood up, Francis started unloading more fists, and one sent him down causing the referee to stop the fight.

Ngannou was on a six-fight winning streak, five of those wins coming by knockout. This was actually his second shot at the UFC Heavyweight Title after he failed to beat Miocic in January 2018. Now Francis Ngannou is vindicated and he has also made history.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
