TATAME PLAY: Vitor Miranda breaks down Ngannou’s win over Miocic at UFC 260 and shows how the grappling skills of the Cameroonian evolved

Master of analysis, Vitor Miranda noticed several similar points between the two editions of Stipe Miocic vs Francis Ngannou, but one thing stood out at UFC 260, last Saturday (27), in Las Vegas (USA).

According to the Brazilian athlete – ex-UFC fighter –, besides Ngannou’s strong connected high kick that hit Miocic’s chin in the beginning of R1, the evolution of the Cameroonian’s grappling skills and good takedown defenses were determinant for his victory.
