UFC 270 preview: Four questions about Francis Ngannou, Ciryl Gane and more


UFC 270 takes place on Saturday, headlined by heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou making his first title defense. His opponent is undefeated interim champion Ciryl Gane, and this meeting will unify the two belts; however, the topic of discussion going into the fight has drifted away from the fight.

Ngannou wants a new contract. If he loses the title to Gane, he will also lose a lot of influence in their negotiations. But if he knocks out Gane and continues this dominant streak, a world of opportunity opens up for him and, no doubt, leads to an extremely interesting post-fight press conference.

The 270 card is based on two title fights. The second belt at stake is the flyweight title, as underdog Brandon Moreno takes him on against Deiveson Figueiredo. The rest of the card is slim, but the top of the card is more than enough to carry 270.
