Apparently Francis Ngannou was taking too long to defend his Heavyweight Title so the boss has decided we need another Interim Title Fight.

Derrick Lewis (25-7, 1 NC) is not only one of the most entertaining characters outside of the Octagon (give him a follow on Instagram) but undoubtedly inside it as well.

He is currently riding a four fight win streak in the division with two brutal KO wins in a row taking his total to 12 KO wins in the UFC which equals the all-time KO record with Matt Brown.

Ciryl Gane (9-0) earns his shot at the interim title having won all nine of his professional fights, six of which have been inside the UFC promotion.

Unanimous decision wins over Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Alexander Volkov did not win the French native many new fans but he will take plenty of confidence into this fight having never been beaten.

Lewis is a very one dimensional fighter with one path to victory but he holds extreme power in his hands.

Gane, in contrast, is a very well rounded and calculated mixed martial artist who has two submission wins to his name in the UFC.

His boxing is of a very high level and he keeps his range well, something that will be very important in this fight against the Black Beast.


We are backing Ciryl Gane to win by decision.
