A lot is on the line for Francis Ngannou when he steps inside the octagon against Ciryl Gane at UFC 270. Can the UFC heavyweight champion focus on the task at hand and take down the multi-talented fighter?
An undisputed UFC heavyweight champion will be crowned on January 22 from inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Ngannou has won five fights in a row via some form of knockout, his last fight against Stipe Miocic for the title. Gane won three fights in 2021, including a show-stopping performance against Derrick Lewis. He will look to do the same against his former sparring partner in Ngannou.
Will Ngannou get the win on the last fight of his UFC contract, gaining leverage along the way? Can Gane continue his momentum and take down the mighty Ngannou?
