Controversy is famous for making good fights and this main event will serve as a prime example. Houston’s favorite The Black Beast and the gifted French striker Bon Gamin’ will come out blazing to get their hands on UFC gold this weekend.

Derrick Lewis became the most feared knockout artist in UFC history when he gained the no.1 position for most knockouts in UFC history. Lewis has enamoured fight fans with multiple unexpected and wild comeback knockouts. Lewis has proved that he can never be counted out from a fight because he possesses flashy one-punch knockout power.

Lewis has had 20 career knockouts out of which 12 have been in the UFC against top fighters like Curtis Blaydes, Alexander Volkov, and Travis Browne, etc. Derrick Lewis will have to put his power to the test again as he enters as an underdog against the talented Ciryl Gane. 

Ciryl Gane has proved to be one of the most technical strikers in the UFC Heavyweight division. With an unbelievably impressive 9-0 MMA record, 2 years into his UFC career Bon Gamin’ has been able to set himself up for a shot at gold. Gane is a patient striker who paces himself well and never forces the finish. 

He has had 6 finishes in his short 9 fight career, but he believes he is at his best when patient. Gane will look to set himself up for a shot at undisputed gold once he gets his hand raised this weekend against The Black Beast. 

 his is a dangerous fight for both men as they both are equipped with brutal finishing ability. The pathway for Derrick Lewis is clear, he picks his shots and looks for the perfect punch to knockout Gane. The strategy might sound too narrow, but Lewis has proved fight fans wrong by finding the punch he needs. 

Contrarily Gane will make this a technical battle using leg kicks, kicks to the body, switch stances, and his sniper jabs. Gane will look to tire Lewis and eventually look to finish him. We are confidently siding with the sizeable favorite in Ciryl Gane and believe he will find a late finish to end this war. 

We are paying out triple winnings this week for our fight fans who believe either of the fighters can get the knockout finish. Considering the magnitude and division of this fight, the finish is very likely, and we recommend getting around this awesome promotion.
