Francis Ngannou, Ciryl Gane fist bump before title unifier

    ANAHEIM, Calif. โ€“ The time for talking is over after Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane had their final pre-fight faceoff at UFC 270 ceremonial weigh-ins.

    On Saturday, Ngannou (16-3 MMA, 11-2 UFC) and Gane (10-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) will fight in a heavyweight title unification bout at Honda Center. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.

    First, however, they had to engage in a final faceoff. Similar to Thursdayโ€™s pre-fight press conference staredown, the champion Ngannou and interim titleholder Gane were intense but respectful of each other.

    With all the pre-fight obligations now out of the way, all thatโ€™s left for these two is to fight and decide the top dog at heavyweight.
