We are just a few days away from UFC 270, which is primed and ready to hit Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on Sat., Jan. 22, 2022, featuring a Heavyweight title unification bout between Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane.
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen “The Predator” in action, 10 months to be exact, knocking out Stipe Miocic to win the strap at UFC 260. Gane, meanwhile, competed more recently, stopping Derrick Lewis via strikes at UFC 265 in Aug. 2021.
Now, the two men will collide in a battle of behemoths who are looking to solidify themselves as “The Baddest Man on the Planet.” Before then, dive in to see the latest episode of “Embedded,” which also highlights the Flyweight trilogy fight between division kingpin, Brandon Moreno, and former champion, Deiveson Figueiredo.
From the official YouTube description:
Champ Brandon Moreno heads west with his team. Deiveson Figueiredo arrives by air. Champion Francis Ngannou visits a gym with history. Interim king Ciryl Gane talks to media.
