Then he lost to champion Stipe Miocic via Unanimous Decision, and failed to bounce back, as he next lost a Unanimous Decision to Derrick Lewis. However, "The Predator" put together four wins in a row, in a combined time of 3:28, earning another title shot.

In the main of UFC 260, a new baddest man on the plant was crowned, as Ngannou took the heavyweight belt from Miocic via KO at 0:52 of Round 2. Further, The Russian Invasion in MMA has long been discussed, but the African Invasion is now inescapable, with African fighters holding titles in three of the eight male weight divisions.\
