UFC 270 Ngannou vs Gane: start time, how to watch or stream online, full fight card

Ngannou defends his UFC heavyweight title at UFC 270.

It’s 2022 and the UFC’s first PPV card of the year is almost here! UFC 270 is a big one, with Francois Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane for the heavyweight title, an incredible fight that is a true 50/50 choice. It also hosts a flyweight title fight in the co-main between Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo. This will be the third contest between the two. The previous two were both barn burners, so expect greatness.

Can Ciryl Gane diffuse the juggernaut power of Francis Ngannou with her slick footwork and technical striking, or will Ngannou just steamroll another heavyweight in minutes? It could really go either way.

My personal prediction: I see Gane getting knocked out. In their first fight, Stipe Miocic was able to control and tire Ngannou by wrestling him. This is not part of Gane’s skills. He basically has to run the gauntlet and go untouched for two rounds against the most dangerous puncher in UFC history. Considering the quality of Ngannou’s timing against technically superior forwards in the past, I expect Gane to be hit hard early on. That said, Gane likely outclassed the division’s second-biggest puncher in Derrick Lewis.

Either way, it’s going to be exciting as hell. Here’s everything you need to know.
