The undefeated UFC Heavyweight fighter, Ciryl Gane will be entering the Octagon in a five-round main event against the number 5th ranked Heavyweight fighter Alexander Volkov at UFC Vegas 30.

Gane is one of the rapidly rising prospects in the Heavyweight division that holds victories over former champion Junior Dos Santos and top contender, Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

Ciryl Gane has to still face a defeat in his MMA career but he believes facing the former Bellator champion, Alexander Volkov is going to the biggest test of his career. Talking about this in the UFC Vegas 30 press conference, Gane says,

“This is a big opportunity because, for me, I think it’s the biggest challenge I have of my career, Volkov, for me, is one of the best of the division. The more the challenge is big, the more I’m excited about that. Because I’m new to MMA.”

“I want to prove because I really don’t know myself. I want a challenge, and maybe this fight is going to prove a new version of myself, and maybe I’m going to show something new.” {H/T MMA Junkie}

Ciryl Gane right now holds the number 3 ranking in the UFC Heavyweight division and with a win against Alexander Volkov, he will be right into the title mix. Right now the Heavyweight champion, Francis Ngannou is being booked to face Derrick Lewis for his first title defense.

The winner of this match is further targeted to face Stipe Miocic or Jon Jones. But Gane believes a win in this fight will increase his credibility also for the title shot. He added, “I’m comfortable, I don’t know why I’m not the guy who doesn’t stress. I don’t know why. I’m good with that. I’m good.”

“Every fight I did, I want to make a show for the fans, If I can finish the fight before the end with a KO, with a submission like I did (before), yes, I want to do that for the fans. I want to make sure.”
