Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker shared his opinion about the fight for the interim heavyweight title between Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane, who will headline Saturday’s UFC 265.
According to Robert Whittaker, Ciryl Gane will outpoint Lewis throughout the fight, which might lead to a chink in the Frenchman’s armor. ‘Bobby Knuckles’ also stated that Derrick Lewis needs to find a single opening to deliver another highlight-reel knockout. Sharing his tip on Unibet Australia, Robert Whittaker said:
“I’m gonna go with Derrick Lewis to win by KO/TKO, any round. I think he can do it. I think complacency will seep into Ciryl Gane’s game, ’cause I do believe he will be winning the fight. I think he will be outstriking Derrick. But in that complacency a gap will open and Derrick has to only land one. He’s got five rounds to do it, I think he can do it. I’m going with Derrick Lewis KO/TKO any round.”
