The UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said that he would watch with interest the upcoming fight between the title holder in the heavyweight division Francis Ngannou and the undefeated Frenchman Ciryl Gane.
Israel Adesanya is sure that Ngannou has significantly improved recently, but he also considers Gane a dangerous opponent.
“I like that”, Adesanya said about a future fight between Gane and Francis Ngannou. Adesanya continued, “I like that because, I mean, you’ve seen Francis’ last fight. He doesn’t fight the way; ‘patient Francis’ is a thing now. Patient Francis is a thing. So, yeah, Francis is different now. And he’s still the heavyweight champion.”“This guy’s dangerous though, man. Cerebral Ciryl, I’ll say that. Cerebral Ciryl ‘cause he’s just systematic. Pop, pop, pop”, Adesanya suggested that Ciryl Gane keeps popping his opponent with his high-volume striking before eventually landing a heavy finishing blow. Adesanya added, “Pop, pop, pop. Boom. Dangerous.”
