Ngannou vs Gane Preview
The undisputed heavyweight title is on the line as Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane clash at UFC 270. The one-time training partners are now opponents as they face off for a UFC strap.
“This whole story is a great story,” said UFC president Dana White. “But the most important thing is no matter who hit who, who did what, who doesn’t like who, on Saturday night, the two biggest, baddest heavyweights in the world are going to fight, and all the questions will be answered. That’s all that matters.”
The history between the two has sparked a storyline this week, with Ngannou saying he knocked out Gane with a kick. Gane has maintained that never happened.
“He was knocked out, probably, because he doesn’t remember,” Ngannou said at the pre-fight press conference.
Gane quickly fired back.
“This is not the truth,” Gane said. “We did some sparring – and it was really great sparring from Francis. It was a beautiful left kick. The problem with Francis is he doesn’t like technical sparring – (he likes) to make power. … You gave me the left kick. You hurt me. You see? I’m honest – you hurt me. You hurt me. But you didn’t knock me down.”
The flyweight title is also up for grabs, with Brandon Moreno making his first title defense against Deiveson Figueiredo to complete their trilogy. The duo fought to a draw in their first scrap and Moreno won the last by submission to claim the belt.
“Figueiredo liked to talk like, ‘This guy is scared of me, he don’t want to give me the trilogy.’ But man, I was just waiting for the name, literally,” Moreno said. “The first name the UFC gave me was Figueiredo and I said ‘yes’ in that moment, because I just wanted to fight.
“At first I was a little surprised. But at the end of the day, the first fight was incredible, second fight was total domination, but maybe the trilogy can be nice to finish the job and put Deiveson Figueiredo in the 135-pound division.”
