UFC 270 Main Card Set with Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane, Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo 2, Greg Hardy

The lineup is set for UFC’s first pay-per-view main card in 2022.

UFC 270 takes place on January 22 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., Headlining a heavyweight championship unification fight between undisputed defending champion Francis Ngannou and interim defending champion. Ciryl Gane. In the main co-event, flyweight champion Brandon Moreno meets Deiveson Figueiredo in a trilogy fight.

Three more fights were announced for the ESPN + PPV lineup for January 22 on Saturday’s UFC 269 show. Jared Cannonier fights Derek Brunson in what is likely a 185-pound No.1 contender fight, Movsar Evloev meets Ilia Topuria in an undefeated featherweight battle, and former NFL star Greg Hardy fights veteran heavyweight Aleksei Oleinik.

Hardy – 4-4 with a no-contest in the UFC – has just suffered two straight knockout losses. Despite his inexperience, mixed results, and a past arrest for allegedly assaulting an ex-girlfriend (Hardy was convicted of assault and threatening communication, but the conviction was later struck from his record after a successful appeal in due to the alleged victim not showing up in court to testify) this will be her third appearance on a UFC pay-per-view.
