CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Sat., Jan. 22, 2022, for the first time in more than two years with a Heavyweight title unification bout that will see former teammates collide, as division kingpin, Francis Ngannou, battles interim counterpart, Ciryl Gane. In UFC 270’s pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, newly-minted Flyweight champion, Brandon Moreno, runs it back with former titleholder, Deiveson Figueiredo. IT’S A THRILLING CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE DIP YOU SIMPLY CAN’T MISS!

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

The first round was a feeling out period for both men as Tuivasa plodded forward with jabs and Sakai countered with hard leg kicks. Things quickly heated up in the second when Tuivasa landed a beautiful combination that backed Sakai up along the cage. “Bam Bam” kept swinging and connected with a ferocious right hand. Sakai collapsed to the ground and the fight was over.
