The spotlight falls on the big men this weekend as Stipe Miocic makes his first Octagon appearance of 2021 to defend his heavyweight crown against Francis Ngannou.

Miocic halted the Frenchman's hype train in dominant fashion the first time these two men met back at UFC 220 - but after a two-year learning curve, Ngannou returns to the summit for a second crack at the title in this weekend's main event.

Having retired two-weight king Daniel Cormier in his previous outing to retain control of the heavyweight divison, Miocic will be out to further embellish a legacy that already stands out as one of the finest in UFC history with another solid win against "The Predator" at the UFC APEX.

The heartbreak of losing this weekend's co-main event between Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega due to COVID protocols should be soothed by another stacked card featuring Tyron Woodley's make-or-break showdown against welterweight dangerman Vicente Luque.

Sean O'Malley also makes his return to action following a shock defeat to Marlon Vera last time out, taking on KO king Thomas Almeida.

With all that - and much more - here's all you need to know about how to watch UFC 260 on BT Sport this weekend.
