Francis Ngannou predicts a victory by KO over Ciryl Gane before the end of the 2nd round.
Make sure you’re glued to your screens from the start of the fight when Francis Ngannou (16-3) and Ciryl Gane (10-0) will meet in the Octagon on January 22, since ” The predator “ said via TMZ Sports that he will stop the undefeated UFC fighter, the Frenchman Ciryl Gane, within 2 rounds!
TMZ recently spoke with Ngannou, the powerful 35-year-old Cameroonian puncher, current heavyweight champion, before his unification fight with Gane, 31 years.
And Francis made it clear that he doesn’t see the fight lasting very long.
“The knockout doesn’t come when you look for it, so I’m not going to look for the knockout but I can’t see the fight ending without me knocking him out, maybe within 2 rounds!,” Ngannou said.
“If you haven’t seen Gane fight…he’s only been training for a few years. He’s 10-0…and he’s the best moving heavyweight in the UFC. »
What makes the matchup even more interesting is the fact that Francis and Ciryl have trained together about ten times in France (according to Ngannou), but they aren’t best friends these days.
It is not that Francis do not respect Ciryl …because he respects it. But he believes that Gane will not be able to resist its power:
“Again, this is a fighting business. It’s not that karate crap. It’s about fighting and knowing how to knock someone out or knock someone out.” Francis said.
Despite this bold prediction from the champion, Gane is slightly seen as the favorite according to bookmakers.
UFC 270 will take place on Saturday (in a week) in Southern California.
