UFC 270: Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane | Time, live stream, fight card, how to watch UFC on ESPN+ PPV

    A heavyweight unification bout between Francis Ngannou and interim champion Ciryl Gane headlines the first UFC pay-per-view event of 2022 on at Honda Center in Anaheim, California on Saturday, January 22 (1/22/2022).

    UFC 270: Ngannou vs. Gane will be a pay-per-view fight exclusive to ESPN+The main fight card starts at 10:00 p.m. ET with the preliminary bouts at 8:00 p.m. ET and early prelims at 6:00 p.m. ET.

    Heavyweight champ Francis “The Predator” Ngannou (16-3-0) takes on undefeated interim titleholder “Bon Gamin” Cyril Gane (10-0-0) in a bout that was preordained last August, when Gane earned a TKO win over Derrick Lewis to claim the interim title. It will be Ngannou’s first title defense since he took the belt from Stipe Miocic last March.

    Gane, who used to train with Ngannou in Paris France, has respect for his opponent, and recognizes him as a true threat.

    “I’m the interim champion. I’m not the champion,” Gane told MMA Fighting. “I’m not the best guy. I’m not the baddest guy in the world. Today it’s Francis. If I want to be this guy, I must beat Francis.”

    The co-main event is a second title bout between flyweight champ Brandon Moreno (26-11-0) and challenger Deiveson Figueiredo (20-2-1). Figueiredo will look to reclaim the title in this highly anticipated rematch, after Moreno took it from him in June following a previous bout that ended in a draw.
