UFC full fight video: Ciryl Gane dominates Derrick Lewis to win interim title

    Watch Ciryl Gane vs. Derrick Lewis full fight video to see Gane win the UFCโ€™s interim heavyweight title at UFC Vegas 265 on Aug. 7, 2021, in Houston.

    Gane had knocked off six straight UFC opponents to earn his chance at a vacant interim title, but heโ€™d have to wade into enemy territory to get it. Fan favorite Lewis was making his second attempt at a UFC title and would have a packed Toyota Center crowd cheering him on.

    A fairy tale ending was not to be for Lewis, who struggled to muster much offense against the undefeated Gane and eventually succumbed to strikes at the 4:11 mark of Round 3. It was another big win for Gane and a disappointing homecoming for โ€œThe Black Beast.โ€

    Next, Gane gets the chance to unify the UFCโ€™s heavyweight titles when he takes on undisputed champion Francis Ngannou. The former training partners headline UFC 270 at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Jan. 22.
