The UFC has decided to make a big bang at its first 2022 event to make 2022 thrilling and exciting. Fighting for the biggest prize of the game from friend to foe when UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou and interim champion Ciryl Gane combine titles on January 22. Also, a firecracker co-man event between flyweight king Brendan Moreno and former champion Dawson Figueroa to end their trilogy. The UFC 270 took place on January 22 in Anaheim with a Matteman card for fans from the Honda Center.
By the way, Francis Ngannou is currently preparing for two battles: one against former teammate Ciryl Gane and the other with the UFC. ۔
Current UFC heavyweight champion Ngannou is determined to focus on his upcoming title bout with interm champion Gane.
But Ngannou is going to represent this final contest on his contract. If he wins and retains the title, a champion clause will be introduced that would allow the UFC to extend its contract with more fights, although details are not clear. If Ngannou loses, he will basically become a limited free agent.
A 90-day special negotiation period with the UFC will be maintained in which the promotion can be matched with any offer unless it decides to allow it to run freely.
Relations between Ngannou and the UFC soured earlier this year when he refused a scheduled rematch with Derek Lewis on June 12, 11 weeks after winning the ballot. It provoked the promotion to an interim heavyweight title fight between Gane and Lewis on August 7 at UFC 265, which Ngannou did not appreciate. In response, UFC President Dana White publicly fired Ngannou's manager, Marquel Martin of the Creative Arts Agency, saying he was "too full."
Now let's talk about this event. Odyssey makers from all over the world have declared Francis Ngano vs. Cyril Gain as a virtual dead hat.
In the current hurdle for heavyweight unification bout from USA TODAY Sports and MIP Junkie exclusive sports betting and iGaming provider Tipico, both the current champion Ngannou and the interim title holder are on Gain-112, ie securing one. Will require a successful bet of $ 112. $ 100 wins and $ 212 total payouts.
Ngannou opened as a favorite, which was recorded until 1909, when the competition was first considered earlier this year. However, these difficulties eased significantly after Derek Lewis' spectacular victory in August to claim the interim strip, and as it stands at the moment, the victory of either will yield an equal return on investment.
