Derrick Lewis (25-7) has won seven of his last nine fights and is coming off a February win over Curtis Blaydes via second-round knockout at UFC Vegas 19. Lewis now boasts a UFC-record 12 heavyweight knockouts. Lewis is a powerful forward who has produced knockouts in 18 of his last 22 victories. With boxing experience and heavy hands, Lewis seeks to land that fight-transforming punch. Lewis doesn't have much baseline play and has a reputation for getting tired quickly, so he will live and die with his foot strike. Lewis is a blue belt boxer in BJJ, and he will have the upper hand with most fighters standing.
Ciryl Gane (9-0) won 33% of his fights by submission. This will be Gane's third fight this year, and his last fight is defeating Alexander Volkov by decision at UFC Vegas 30. Gane is 6-0 under the UFC banner and will be his 10th fight since joining and converting. in professional three years ago. Win comes off a Muay Thai record that includes a 7-0 professional record, and the combination of his athleticism, power and size makes him an intriguing fighter in this division. Gane is well behaved behind his jab, throws a powerful backhand, and can be difficult to lift at times due to his awkward style. Gane does some of the best scrum work for him and his cardio is impressive for his size.
Prediction and Picks Gane is the most balanced fighter, he has a size advantage and his kicking game ruins the stand-up. But if we want to get three times our money with one of the world's strongest heavyweights, a guy who shakes things up when he lands, Lewis is our man.
