Ciryl Gane and Tai Tuivasa had absolutely electrified both the Accor Arena and Twitter for almost fifteen minutes.
There are few things in sport like two heavyweights throwing bombs at each other. It got even better when Ciryl Gane and Tai Tuivasa put up an incredibly exciting match in front of a wild French crowd that fought hard for their compatriot Gane.
The second round in particular was exciting when Tuivasa actually dropped Gane with a powerful right hand, only for Gane to get up and try to smash his way through the middle of Tuivasa. Both fighters somehow made it into their corners and saw a third and final round, but there was no denying the energy felt by everyone present and at home.
Gane would eventually achieve the knockout in the third round when a clean left hook would set Tuivasa to his feet. The French crowd exploded with excitement, showering the two warriors in the Octagon with well-deserved praise.
UFC Twitter erupted to celebrate the magnificent battle between the heavyweights
UFC fighters around the world followed the event and took to Twitter to speak out about the explosive main event.
Although the fight was very close, the numbers don’t show how dominant Gane was in the win. Gane landed 110 significant hits with an accuracy rate of 65 percent, was undeniably ahead of his compatriots and will likely be fighting for the UFC heavyweight championship again very soon.
