Gane has recently knocked out top contender Tai Tuivasa in a dominant fashion at UFC Paris last weekend. Even though Bon Gamin was badly hurt in the second round he survived the onslaught and kept targeting the body of his opponent. In the third round, he stopped the Australian brawler via KO to bag the win in his backyard.

On the other hand, Bones after successfully defending his Light Heavyweight title at UFC 247 against Dominick Reyes vacate the title. He stated the reason for vacating the title to be his plans to move up a weight class to compete at Heavyweight. He took time off competition to bulk up in size to compete at Heavyweight.

However, many rumours of him fighting the former Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic have surfaced in recent times. Although, nothing official about his matchup at Heavyweight has been confirmed yet.

“What I can appreciate about Gane is that he invested so much of his work to the body to eventually go up then obviously Tai is kind of trying to catch his he’s just trying to win at the end of the day, If you have to play possum to land a big punch, I get it, but Ciryl Gane is the real deal, man.” Cejudo further added.
