Next UFC is on the 3rd of September.

Ciryl Gane's record is:
10-1-0 (Win-Loss-Draw)

Ciryl Gane is coming off a loss to Francis N'Gannou, prior to that it was a win over Derrick Lewis.

Tai Tuivasa's record is:
15-3-0 (Win-Loss-Draw)

Tai Tuivasa's is coming off a win over Derrick Lewis, prior to that it was a win over Augusto Sakai.

Both of these heavyweights have a outstanding record against top level opponents, Tuivasa is a KO/TKO specialist, Gane is powerful and agile on his feet for a man of his size and it a bit more strategic - he did really well on his last outing against Francis Ngannou, lasting 5 rounds and pushing Ngannou to demonstrate some elements of his game that have never been seen before.

More content and discussions will be dropped in the comments leading up to fight day. If you have any, or want to get involved or drop any interesting relevant content then do so in comments below.

How’s everyone feel about the Robert Whittaker vs Marvin Vettori matchup? Vettori impressed me again somewhat with his win over Costa, not any easy fight for Whittaker by any stretch of the imagination.

Tai Tuivasa is pretty confident going in on this one... "If I dink him, I sink him - I'd love to knock Jon Jones head off"

I'd wait to see what Jon Jones looks like on his return before talking them words 😵‍💫

Some unknown facts on Tai Tuivasa

He once had a gambling addiction and blew 20k on the night he dropped professional Ruby and converted to MMA.

“I lost about $20,000 on the pokies. At one point in the evening, I honestly believed I’d make a million dollars. Yet when I finally walked out, I had nothing — not even enough money for a cab. And that’s when I decided I had to get out of rugby league. Get back with my family and a different way of living.”

He once had 3 back to back losses in the UFC to Sergey Spivak, Blagoy Ivanov and Junior dos Santos.

Now look at him!
