Move over Daniel Cormier – you’re not the only one who might have an over-the-top reaction on a UFC broadcast.
The team commentating the UFC for RMC Sport in Ciryl Gane’s native France had quite the reaction when “Bon Gamin” claimed the promotion’s interim heavyweight title at August’s UFC 265 with a third-round TKO win over the hard-hitting Derrick Lewis.
You don’t need to speak a word of French to feel the energy put forth by UFC veteran Taylor Lapilus and fellow MMA Factory Paris fighter Taylor Lapilus, as well as his broadcast partners Antoine Simon and Samyr Hamoudi.

Jon Anik, Joe Rogan and Cormier might have their work cut out for them at Saturday’s UFC 270. If interim champion Gane (10-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) finds a way to stop reigning titleholder Francis Ngannou (16-3 MMA, 11-2 UFC), I know which feed I’m going to be watching.
