Ciryl Gane Dana White - FirstSportz
Ciryl Gane

In his first UFC main event, Ciryl Gane snatched a unanimous decision victory over Jarizinho Rozenstruik and he maintained his undefeated record.

Despite winning every round in the fight Gane faced some criticism for playing it too safe, and not providing a rather boring main event for the night, and even Dana White wasn’t impressed with his performance he said,

“Everybody’s talking about Ciryl being this big contender, but look what Francis did to Jairzinho.”

“This was Ciryl Gane’s coming out party and his chance to show the world who he is. He won, but let’s leave it at that, he won.”

Gane reacted to his comments and said, “I can understand that – he is the boss and he wants to make money, so he wants a guy [who’s] bankable. We know, people want the show, want the big KO.”

“Yes, I don’t finish the fight. I tried, but I don’t do it. So, I can understand that, but I’m OK.”

Gane wasn’t happy with his performance either but his coach thinks he did well

In the post-fight conference he said, “I remember that I tried to finish the fight. I didn’t but I tried to finish the fight and yes, we managed the fight very well so yes I’m happy. I think did it well. I managed the fight on the feet. I tried to go down, I go down and I did the takedown. I think I manage well the fight on the feet.”

“I was not really happy but my head coach said ‘you did very well, you won five rounds of a fight.’ So I’m happy. I think I proved something. I can go five rounds and I can manage five rounds. I’m really comfortable with five rounds.”
