The whole conference was filled with entertainment as the fighters got involved in various heated exchanges. Each one is trying their best to get into the head of their opponent and get a mental advantage.
After the press conference was over as per the regulations fighters had to face off each other for the first time. The face between the main event fighters, Ngannou and Gane was at the end and was as intense as anyone could have imagined. When both the fighters were just inches close to each other looking into their opponent’s eyes, Ngannou said some words to Gane in French.
The clip was posted online by UFC on their official Instagram account. Under that post, UFC France commented on a translated version of the conversation between the two fighters. According to the translation, Ngannou explained to Gane that it’s pointless what Gane thinks of him as in reality, he respects Gane a lot. And this Saturday at UFC 270 they are going to put on a great fighting show. “No matter what you might believe, I respect you and on Saturday we are gonna go at war,” said Ngannou.
