The Octagon remains in Las Vegas for tonight’s UFC 270 event, an eleven-bout fight card headlined by Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane.
Ngannou (16-3 MMA) most recently competed back in March of 2021 at UFC 260, where he scored a second round knockout over Stipe Miocic to become the promotions heavyweight world champion.
Meanwhile, Ciryl Gane (10-0 MMA) captured the promotions interim heavyweight title at UFC 265, defeating Derrick Lewis by TKO. That win extended Gane’s perfect record, which includes six straight wins under the UFC banner.
Adding to the intrigue of tonight’s main event is the fact that Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane used to be training partners.
Whomever emerges victorious between ‘The Predator’ and ‘Bon Gamin’ this evening will have the honor of calling themselves “the undisputed baddest man on the planet”.
UFC 270 is co-headlined by a trilogy bout between reigning UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno and former title holder Deiveson Figueiredo.
Moreno (19-5-2 MMA) and Figueiredo (20-2-1MMA) most recently collided at UFC 263, with the Mexican standout dethroning the Brazilian by way of submission. That rematch was preceded by a majority draw at UFC 256.
