For the first time since beating Stipic Miocic for the UFC heavyweight title, Francis Ngannou will defend his belt against interim champion Ciryl Gane.
Ngannou beat Miocic for the title back at UFC 260 in March. It was a rematch from their fight in 2018 when Miocic beat him. The win was the fifth in a row for Ngannou via some form of knockout. Joining the UFC in 2019, Gane has won all seven of his fights with the promotion. Gane won the interim heavyweight title in August, beating Derrick Lewis via TKO.
Fans signing up for the UFC 270 PPV will be getting more than just the Ngannou-Gane fight, however. Brandon Moreno will be defending the UFC flyweight title against Deiveson Figueiredo. This will be a trilogy bout, as the two fought one another at UFC 256 in 2020 and UFC 263 in June. The first fight ended in a draw, and Moreno won via submission in the second fight to win the title.
