This is the UFC Paris live blog for Ciryl Gane vs. Tai Tuivasa, the heavyweight main event taking place on Saturday in Paris.
Gane enters this heavyweight bout looking to rebound from his first career defeat, a unanimous decision loss to champion Francis Ngannou this past January. Prior to that defeat, the former Muay Thai champion had won 10 in a row in MMA, including seven inside the UFC. Gane will be facing Tuivasa in what appears to be an excellent stylistic matchup.
Unlike Gane, Tuivasa was defeated many times throughout his career. He lost three fights in the UFC just years ago. Since then though, “Bam Bam” has righted the ship, winning five in a row, all by stoppage, including his spectacular elbow finish of Derrick Lewis in February.
