[Order UFC 270: Ngannou vs. Gane on ESPN+ pay-per-view]
Ngannou-Gane has featured one of the more interesting buildups we’ve seen for a UFC heavyweight fight. The two are former training partners. But Ngannou’s bigger feud has been with the UFC over contract talks and there even being an interim title in the first place.
Ngannou, who knocked out Stipe Miocic to win his belt in March 2021, may want to focus more on Gane. FanDuel Sportsbook has the 31-year-old challenger as the favorite at –144. Ngannou comes in as a +122 underdog.
As big of a fight as the heavyweight showdown is, the favorite for Fight of the Night comes in the co-main event. Moreno and Figueiredo’s first fight at UFC 256 ended in an entertaining draw. Moreno was able to get the submission victory in the rematch at UFC 263. The trilogy bout will solidify the future of the flyweight division.
