Ciryl Gane won big at UFC Paris last weekend inside Accor Arena, smashing heavyweight “Polar Bear” Serghei Spivac and capturing a post-fight performance bonus. Unfortunately “Bon Gamin” also lost big, thanks to band of brazen burglars who robbed the power-punching Frenchman while he was locked inside the Octagon.

“It is possible that the thugs have made scouts or that a person in the athlete’s entourage has informed them about his schedule,” sources told La Parisien.

Gane is reported to have lost in excess of $150,000 euros, mostly in jewelry (including a Rolex). No arrests have been made as of this writing but police assigned to the Val-de-Marne territorial security anti-burglary cell are examining evidence, which includes surveillance footage captured by a nearby establishment.

The victory over Spivac pushed Gane to 12-2 overall and will likely put him back in the title conversation after coming up short against Jon Jones earlier this year. “Bon Gamin” is currently ranked No. 2 at 265 pounds, behind Sergei Pavlovich, and has been linked to a potential fight against English sensation Tom Aspinall.
