Only one man can call themselves the undisputed UFC heavyweight champion. Inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane will finally meet to prove who is the top dog in the heavyweight division at UFC 270.
The card will also feature the trilogy fight between UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno and former champion Deiveson Figueiredo.
Ngannou returns to action after beating Stipe Miocic to become the UFC heavyweight champion. In the middle of a battle with UFC management, Ngannou's fight contract is almost coming to an end. If he were to win, there is a chance he can leave the company as champion.
Gane has come out of nowhere to become one of the most versatile fighters in MMA today. Winning three in a row in 2021, Gane has used his skillset to halt the momentum of dangerous brawlers. The interim champion is looking to start 2022 by becoming undisputed champion.
The co-main event will see Brandon Moreno defend the UFC flyweight title against Deiveson Figueiredo in a trilogy fight. The two fought to a draw at UFC 256 in December 2020 following multiple groin strikes by Figueiredo. Moreno would win the second fight at UFC 263 in June via submission.
