It is simple that Ciryl Gane has faced lots of the most impactful heavyweights on the UFC roster. And this listing retains rising.
Gane, the former UFC interim heavyweight champion, scored a powerful TKO victory over Tai Tuivasa throughout the headlining of theUFC Paris held this Saturday at the Accor Arena, the promotion’s first occasion on French soil. It was a powerful end, however Gane (11−1) needed to endure rather a lot to get that knockout. The Frenchman was knocked down by Tuivasa in the second spherical of their combat and needed to experience out an enormous storm.
Gane, who faced Francis NgannouDerrick Lewis, Junior Dos Santos and different knockout princes stated Tuivasa was the hardest hitter he had faced.
“Yeah, 100% (biggest puncher),” Gane instructed reporters throughout the UFC Fight Night 209 post-fight press convention. “Ngannou never touched me during the fight, so it’s impossible to compare. But today, Tai Tuivasa touched me. Francis Ngannou can touch very well. That’s not the point. But today (Tuivasa) was the first guy to put me on my ass.”
UFC Paris was the first time Gane was really hit in a combat. The 32-year-old fighter is usually very agile and recognized for his mobility and dodging. The expertise was a primary for Gane.
“Nothing,” Gane stated, recalling the feeling of being hit. “I didn’t have time to ask questions in my head. I just had to react. So I didn’t feel anything, then I felt the ground with my hands, and after that I saw her legs, so I grabbed the legs, and that was it. It was my feeling. And after a few seconds, I was back.”
