Tai Tuivasa plans to ruin the party at UFC Paris

Tai Tuivasa has reiterated that his primary motivation for fighting is to make money.

Tuivasa is currently the No.3-ranked heavyweight, with his upcoming UFC Paris opponent Ciryl Gane ranked No.1. With a win on Saturday, ‘Bam Bam’ could find himself fighting for the title next.

With that said, during an interview with TMZ Sports, the 29-year-old heavyweight had this to say about his title shot potentially being held up by Jon Jones, Francis Ngannou, and Stipe Miocic:

“All that business doesn’t really bother me. All I’m focused on is winning this Saturday and negotiating a new contract for bigger money. Whatever happens after that is what happens. I’m here to fight, I’m a fighter, and I’m a prizefighter, so I know if I win this weekend, it’s gonna help me dramatically in my next contract negotiations. That’s my main focus, and whatever happens after that will be a bonus.”

UFC Paris will be the promotion’s first event in France, headlined by Tuivasa and Gane. Although he’s a massive underdog, ‘Bam Bam’ has the power to turn anyone’s lights off. Only time will tell if Paris witnesses their first shoey celebration live.

UFC Paris will be a historic event as France finally lifted its ban on MMA, which started in 2016. There’s no better way to introduce France to live UFC than a potential masterclass from their countryman Gane.

Unfortunately for them, Tuivasa has other plans. During the same interview with TMZ Sports, ‘Bam Bam’ had this to say about his upcoming main event:

“I’m super excited. Definitely a great feeling to be a part of history, and it will be an even better one to ruin the party.”

Tuivasa has had a long journey leading up to the UFC Paris main event. ‘Bam Bam’ was once 3-3 in the UFC after three straight losses but has since rattled off five wins, all by KO/TKO. The Aussie now has a chance to shock the world and potentially earn a title shot by taking out Gane.
