LAS VEGAS -- The storyline going into Saturday's UFC 260 main event at the Apex is how much has Francis Ngannou improved since he lost in his first bid to dethrone heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic three years ago.
Miocic, though, wants to remind people that he hasn't exactly rested on his laurels since winning that unanimous decision at UFC 220 on Jan. 20, 2018.
"He definitely deserves another shot at the title," Miocic told ESPN. "He's been on a tear. He's evolved, he's gotten better. Fortunately, so have I. I'm the champ and I'm not giving up my belt.
