The Octagon returned to France for today’s UFC Paris event, an eleven-bout fight card headlined by Ciryl Gane vs. Serghei Spivac.
The highly anticipated heavyweight main event proved to be a one-sided affair. Ciryl Gane was able to keep the fight standing, this despite Serghei Spivac’s best efforts to get the contest to the ground. ‘Bon Gamin’ peppered ‘The Polar Bear’ with punches throughout the fight and wound up cruising to a second-round TKO victory following a wicked final flurry of punches.
UFC Paris was co-headlined by a women’s flyweight fight featuring Rose Namajunas taking on Manon Fiorot. The bout turned out to be a closely contested back and forth affair. Rose Namajunas attempts to get the fight to the floor on numerous occasions, but Manon Fiorot did a great job of keeping the fight standing for the majority of the fifteen-minute contest. While both fighters landed some big shots, it was Manon who got off the better volume. With that, Fiorot pulled off an impressive unanimous decision victory.
