The UFC returns tonight with two title fights and a special pay-per-view event.
Francis Ngannou will defend the UFC Heavyweight Championship against Ciryl Gane in the main event of UFC 270. It’s a fascinating five-round heavyweight bout with Ngannou’s knockout power set to be tested by Gane’s unusual agility and technique for a fighter of the weight class.
UFC 270 will mark the first time that Ngannou has competed since his impressive beatdown of Stipe Miocic in March last year. For Gane, he’ll be stepping into the Octagon after three wins in 2021 against Derrick Lewis, Alexander Volkov, and Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
The co-main event is a UFC Flyweight Championship trilogy bout with Brandon Moreno ready to defend his title against Deiveson Figueiredo in a five-round matchup. After the pair fought to a majority draw in December 2020, Moreno later came out on top in the rematch at UFC 263 in June last year when he submitted Figueiredo in round three.
Here’s the full UFC fight card and also details about how to watch UFC 270 tonight.
