During the heavyweight title in UFC 265, Ciryl Gane dominates Derrick Lewis. There was no major comeback from Derrick Lewis in the game as Gane was the one dictating the flow of the fight entirely. For claiming the title of the champion, Francis Ngannou is the next opponent to be faced by Gane.
In UFC 265, Ciryl had a dominating game and finished the game by knocking Lewis out during the third bout. Ciryl began his training in MMA a mere three years back. Prior to doing that, he was a Muay Thai fighter for a couple of years. At present, he is among the best MMA heavyweights to be around.
The UFC 265 win is extremely important for the business part of UFC since they have been prepping to move to France. The chances of the promotions making more rounds increase radically since both the fighters of the title of the heavyweight world champion trained alongside each other in Paris.
After efforts and lobbying of over a decade, MMA was approved by the French in 2020. The win of Gane in UFC 265 came at the best time because this french fighter can claim the heavyweight title in his home country against the current champion, who also happens to be from France.
