UFC Paris event was headlined by a key heavyweight matchup featuring Ciryl Gane taking on Serghei Spivac.
Ciryl Gane (11-2 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since suffering a first-round submission loss to Jon Jones in a fight for the vacant heavyweight title at UFC 285. Prior to that setback, ‘Bon Gamin’ had earned a third-round knockout win over Tai Tuivasa in September of 2022.
Meanwhile, Serghei Spivac (16-3 MMA) entered today’s headliner sporting a three-fight winning streak, his latest being a submission victory over Derrick Lewis in February of this year. Prior to that win, ‘Polar Bear’ was coming off back-to-back TKO victories over Augusto Sakai and Greg Hardy respectively.
Today’s UFC Paris main event proved to be a one-sided affair. Ciryl Gane was able to keep the fight standing, this despite Serghei Spivac’s best efforts to get the contest to the ground. ‘Bon Gamin’ peppered ‘The Polar Bear’ with punches throughout the fight and wound up cruising to a second-round TKO victory following a wicked final flurry of punches.
