STREAM HERE >>> Francis Ngannou vs Ciryl Gane free stream online UFC Heavyweight Title Full HD
UFC is ready to deliver its first two title fights of the new year and both carry equal amounts of intrigue and high drama. It all goes down from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, on Saturday night when the heavyweights and flyweights tip the marquee. In the main event,
.Heavyweight king Francis Ngannou looks to defend his crown against interim titleholder Ciryl Gane in a battle of former training partners turned rivals. Plus, 125-pound champ Brandon Moreno looks to wrap up his trilogy with Deiveson Figuieredo with a successful title defense.
Ngannou has been nothing short of destructive en route to claiming the heavyweight belt. The 35-year-old has scored five straight wins — all by knockout — following hiccups against Stipe Miocic and Derrick Lewis in 2018. His latest win exorcised some demons as well when he viciously stopped Moicic to claim the title. Now, he faces a tough test in Gane, who may be the modern version of heavyweight with speed and defense.
Aside from the battle of power and technique in the main event, the co-main event features the two best flyweights in the sport as champion Brandon Moreno and former-champion Deiveson Figueiredo do battle for a third time. Moreno climbed the ranks at 125 pounds after being cut by the promotion in 2018.
He returned in 2019 after scoring a TKO win for the LFA title and has ripped off a 4-0-2 record in UFC since, including fighting Figueiredo to a draw in December 2019 on just three weeks’ notice. He then submitted Figueiredo in their rematch last June to earn the championship. A win by Figueiredo could set up an unprecedented fourth meeting between to the two combatants.
With the omicron variant of COVID-19 still wreaking havoc, the fight card has undergone many changes in the weeks leading up. Below is the current fight card with the latest odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Be sure to check in for all the latest updates and adjustments.
former soccer player who found a taste for muay Thai, Ciryl Gane appears to represent the hopes of many in regards to the potential of heavyweight athletes transitioning into mixed martial arts.
Aside from looking the part aesthetically, Gane – more importantly – demonstrates an ability to both sponge and sequence techniques, as he certainly moves well beyond his years.
Showing that he can switch stances with substance, Gane seems competent from both sides as he smoothly shifts tempo on his attacks. From changing the speed on his kicks to pot-shotting punches and checks, Gane appears fully capable of both frustrating and punishing his opposition.
In addition, Gane’s somewhat fast-and-loose style has even proved to hold up in the smaller octagon, as the 31-year-old’s distance management and proprioception appear to be impeccable. Nevertheless, I still suspect that Gane will look to utilize the entirety of the regulation-sized octagon when he squares off with former training partner, Francis Ngannou.
A Cameroonian-born Parisian who practically came from nothing, the rise of Ngannou has been fascinating to watch.

Originally hailing from the same gym as Gane, Ngannou also stepped onto the UFC scene as a striker who could fight from either stance. Whether he’s hitting counter crosses from southpaw or taking heads off with shovel hooks from orthodox, Ngannou seems to favor conducting traffic off of his left side.
Although Ngannou still shows traces of the fighter that Fernand Lopez brought to market, the incumbent champion has made some clear strides since settling into his new home in Las Vegas at Xtreme Couture.
