A heavyweight rematch between Curtis Blaydes and Francis Ngannou will headline UFC’s second ever event on mainland China.
Blaydes has been on a tear since his first bout with Ngannou (which he lost second-round TKO due to a doctor stoppage at UFC Fight Night 86 in April 2016) going on unbeaten in his next six fights, including a pair of signature wins this year against Alistair Overeem and Mark Hunt.
Ngannou will attempt to repeat his feat and get himself back on track after a forgettable year. Ngannou’s first win over Blaydes was part of his rise to fighting for heavyweight gold, which happened at UFC 220 in January. He was dismantled by then-champ Stipe Miocic over five rounds, sending him back to the drawing board.
