UFC 270 official poster highlighted by Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane heavyweight title unification bout

Francis Ngannou will aim to merge the heavyweight titles when he handles his previous training partner.

Heavyweight champ Ngannou (16-3 MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, 11-2 UFC) fulfills interim champ Ciryl Gane (10-0 MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, 7-0 UFC) in the primary occasion of UFC 270, which occurs Jan. 22 in Anaheim, Calif.

Ngannou achieved success in his 2nd effort at a UFC title, when he avenged his loss to Stipe Miocic with a second-round knockout at UFC 260. When the recently crowned champ wasn’t all set to make a fast turn-around to deal with No. 1 competitor Derrick Lewis, the promo chose to produce an interim title and pit Gane vs. Lewis in the primary occasion of UFC 265 in August.

Gane ended up Lewis in the 3rd round to catch the interim title and the unbeaten fighter is set to deal with fellow Frenchman and previous mixed martial arts Factory Paris colleague Ngannou to merge the belts.
