UFC makes its highly anticipated debut in Paris, France, this Saturday. The event features the heavyweight main event between Tai Tuivasa and France’s native Ciryl Gane. And MMA News is right here to serve up the official weigh-in results!
Gane is looking to rebound from his loss to Francis Ngannou at UFC 270 on Jan. 22 in a heavyweight title bout. The fight was going in Gane’s favor as he won the first two rounds on the judges’ scorecards.
However, the champion rallied to win rounds three through five and handed Gand the first loss of his MMA career. While Gane suffered defeat, he still holds the number one spot in the heavyweight division.
Tuivasa hopes to continue his winning streak as he comes into his fight against Gane as the underdog. Since his loss to Sergey Spivak at UFC 243 on Oct. 5, 2019, Tuivasa has finished his last five opponents by knockout. He earned his most significant career win when he defeated Derrick Lewis at UFC 271 on Feb. 12.
Both fighters could be one fight away from fighting for the UFC heavyweight championship. If not a title shot, the winner of the main event could be competing for the number one contender spot in their next fight.
