Ngannou vs Gane preview and predictions
This well-matched showdown between two former sparring partners has pundits split down the middle in their predictions for the outcome.
Under normal circumstances, it would be hard to bet against Ngannou, who has made short work of his last five opponents, with none of those opponents making it past the second round.
Despite building an impressive roster of former champions, the Predator faces arguably the toughest fight of its life tonight as it comes up against an opponent who has yet to taste defeat in as a professional mixed martial artist who has the cunning to knock out the biggest hitter in the sport.
Who is Francis Ngannou?
The Franco-Cameroonian fighter – the reigning UFC heavyweight champion – has been officially crowned the toughest puncher in UFC history.
After tasting defeat in his first title challenge against Stipe Miocic in January 2018, he then lost again in a unanimous decision to Derrick Lewis.
Undeterred, Ngannou bounced back in exceptional style, stringing together six knockout wins together, culminating in a title-winning performance in his rematch with Miocic in March.
Who is Ciryl Gane?
Having won all ten of her previous professional fights, including seven in the Octagon, Ciryl Gane’s rise through the ranks was as swift as it was flawless.
The former Parisian footballer and bus driver only made his MMA debut in 2019 but has already scored big wins over solid heavyweight names such as Junior Dos Santos, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Alexander Volkov and Derrick Lewis and now holds the interim UFC heavyweight title.
With a background in Muay Thai that has instilled in him a varied striking style, Gane is often a patient fighter who can fall back on his pure athleticism to crush his opponent.
Cote Ngannou vs Gane: who is the favorite to win?
Despite Ngannou’s champion status, it’s the interim title holder who leads the betting, with Gane coming in around the 4/6 mark to claim the belt, while the Predator are currently drifting around 6/5 to retain its title with most bookmakers.
Ngannou vs Gane: Recent Results
Ngannou last entered the Octagon in March at UFC 260, showing off his devastating punching power as he knocked out Stipe Miocic in the second round to claim the undisputed UFC heavyweight title in Las Vegas at the UFC 260.
Ciryl Gane’s last fight in August saw him become the first French fighter to win a UFC world title. In a one-sided main event against Derrick Lewis at UFC 265 in Texas, the 31-year-old clinched the interim heavyweight title via third-round TKO.
UFC 270 full card and highlights
Beyond the highly anticipated title, the full UFC 270 lineup also features plenty of top-tier MMA action.
The co-title sees a highly anticipated flyweight title fight between Mexican Brandon Moreno and Brazilian Deiveson Figueiredo. Saturday’s clash is the third fight between the two fighters after a win for each. The previous two encounters were both blockbusters, which means no self-repeating MMA fan will want to miss the final episode of the trilogy.
