Who will win UFC 270 Ngannou vs Gane?
This is such an intriguing bout.
Ngannou is the world's heaviest hitter and his fights don't last long. His last 5 fights have lasted a total of 214 seconds altogether. That's less than 4 minutes, which is less than 1 UFC round.
The big Cameroonian has beaten all before him, pulverising many of them, and he remains in excellent form, even at age 35. Out of contract after this fight and in dispute with Dana White about what he should be paid, Ngannou may step away from the sport after this bout – win or lose. On the table is a lucrative offer to fight heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury.
Gane, 31, is a complete opponent. Not once in his 10-fight UFC career has he been put on his back. He, too, has pulverised his opponents, looking the better fighter every time he has stepped into the Octagon. He just takes a little longer to get his fights done. Gane's bouts average 906 seconds or a little over 6 minutes.
Ngannou will throw a lot of heavy punches the Frenchman's way. Gane will try to stay outside his range and throw his own bombs from a distance. He's very good at doing it and he'll need to be in this fight. If you get struck by a Ngannou punch, you stay struck. That's it, you're done. Avoid such a blast from Ngannou's fist and Gane is in with a shot. A very good shot.
As we say, it's an intriguing bout and there's no easy-to-pick winner before the fight gets underway. We'll back Ngannou, but won't be surprised if Gane turns out the victor.
