Joshua vs. Ngannou Rescheduled Ahead of UFC 299

The heavyweight showdown between ex-champ Anthony Joshua and former UFC kingpin Francis Ngannou is now set to rumble in Saudi Arabia a day earlier than planned.

Per MMA Junkie's Mike Bohn, the bout's shifted from March 9 to March 8, steering clear of UFC 299's spotlight in Miami on March 9.

UFC 299's headliner? There was a scrap between Sean O'Malley and Marlon Vera, with Dustin Poirier and Benoit St. Denis also throwing down.

Joshua and Ngannou are gearing up for a 10-rounder. Joshua's coming off a win against Otto Wallin, while Ngannou faced a split-decision defeat despite flooring Tyson Fury.
