Gane vs Ngannou Predictions
Oddsmakers currently have Gane vs Ngannou odds as a pick em’ for this UFC 270 headliner. You can find an even -110 on Caesars Sportsbook, while on Draftkings Sportsbook public money is starting to go on Gane as he edges the odds as a -115 betting favorite to Ngannou as a -105 slight underdog.
Ngannou’s technical ability has improved immensely over his last few bouts. ‘The Predator has the power to end this fight within the first two rounds. Standing in his way is easily one of the slickest and technical heavyweight UFC fighters, Ciryl Gane. The undefeated French kickboxer has accumulated a record of 10-0, with less pro MMA experience than Ngannou’s he’s spent more time perfecting his craft in the kickboxing scene.
I expect Gane to be very elusive in this fight and totally present of Ngannou’s KO power. This could make this play out as more of a chess match at times than an all-out brawl. Gane and Ngannou were training partners back in France so they are familiar with each other.
Overall Gane will have a huge advantage as the fight enters the championship rounds. Even with Ngannou’s improved techniques, he’s going up against a striker that has more tools in his arsenal. It will come down to Gane having to take the risk of closing the distance and being willing to take a shot to avoid and counter back. This will be a real test for both fighters where not just power is needed but their fight IQs will have to on their A-game also.
Pick: Ciryl Gane
