Gane has never tasted defeat inside the octagon and has won all of his fights quite convincingly. Gane has shown everything in these fights, he has done five rounds, won by knockouts and submission, the only thing Gane is yet to face inside the octagon in the adversity. None of Gane’s opponents has had any kind of success against him be it standing, in the clinch, or on the mat. Gane moves his feet really well and has been able to neutralize all the attacks from his opponents.

Gane has 10 fights in MMA as a pro and seven of them are in the UFC. He entered the UFC with only three fights in MMA but looked apart from the pack in his very first fight. Gane, primarily a Muay Thai fighter, won his first two fights in the UFC by submission. Gane has the cardio, fight IQ, speed on his side but the biggest factor Ngannou has on his side is power. Ngannou’s only way to win this fight is by knockout and when this is the case the betting odds are generally against you.

Gane and Ngannou used to train together. They were never friends but had a healthy relationship. Since Ngannou’s move to Vegas, he’s had issues with his former coach Fernard Lopez, who has said some nasty thing about his former student. This fight is painted as a grudge match, but the grudge is not between the two fighters competing inside the octagon.
