Gane vs Tuivasa
UFC Fight Night: Gane vs. Tuivasa will take place at the Accor Arena in Paris, France, less than two weeks from now. The event will be headlined by a heavyweight clash between Ciryl Gane and Tai Tuivasa.
Gane and Tuivasa are currently ranked No.1 and No.3, respectively, in the heavyweight division. A win for either man will put them in contention for a potential title shot.
The co-main event features a highly anticipated middleweight clash between contenders Robert Whittaker and Marvin Vettori.
Both fighters have lost to reigning champion Israel Adesanya on two occasions each in the past. However, they can still make their way back to another crack at the title by winning this fight.
Ufc fight night date
The UFC visits France for the very first time on September 3 and the promotion has an electric fight card lined up for MMA fans.
|Promotion||Ultimate Fighting Championship|
|Date||September 3, 2022|
Media Day interactions with fighters are likely to take place on Wednesday, August 31, and can be watched live on the promotion’s official website, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch accounts.
Tuivasa is a dangerous knockout artist who can put any man to sleep if he lands cleanly. Having said that, Gane is easily the most elusive striker in the division right now.
The Frenchman’s agility and fighting IQ is second to none and his movement is similar to fighters competing in lower weight classes.
Gane’s striking is so good that Francis Ngannou himself had to resort to wrestling to defend the title against his former training partner at UFC 270.
Tuivasa isn’t known for his wrestling chops and is unlikely to shoot for takedowns in the fight.
While ‘Bam Bam’ is in with a chance due to the knockout power he possesses, Gane is likely to outstrike Tuivasa throughout the fight. We see him picking up a big win in front of his compatriots on September 3.
