Easily wins main event snooze fest

Gane defeated Jair Rozenstruik via unanimous decision (50-45, 50-45, 50-45) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Good thing there weren't fans in the building or else these two would have been booed to the dressing room. Every once in a while there is a fight booked that appears to be certain fireworks that turns into an absolute snooze fest, and this was one of those. Gane was perfectly content to stand on the outside and use his jab and an occasional kick to keep Rozenstruik off balance. Jair never once came close to threatening Ciryl and thus there was no reason to change the way he was fighting. Gane is extremely athletic for a big man and possesses the ability to throw plenty of fakes at his opponents, but he's going to need to be more aggressive than he was here if he hopes to make a run at the top of the division. It's defeated to get on a guy who is undefeated as a professional and just pitched a shutout in a main event, but this isn't the type of fight that will make Dana White and the UFC brass happy.

Takes out Junior Dos Santos
HeavyweightUFC
December 12, 2020
Gane defeated Junior Dos Santos via TKO (elbow) at 2:34 of Round 2 at UFC 256 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was a fight that went largely as expected. In what was a kickboxing match, the younger, faster Gane picked Dos Santos apart. He may have absorbed a few more power shots than he would have liked, but Gane was in full control throughout the course of this fight and the result never appeared to be in doubt. It was a win/win situation for Gane, as he picks up an easy victory over a former UFC champion who is far more "name" than "game" at this point in the later stages of his career. Still just 30 years old and undefeated as a professional, Gane is on the verge of title-implicating fights at heavyweight as we head into 2021.
Slated to fight in December

October 28, 2020
Gane will take on Junior dos Santos in a heavyweight matchup at UFC 256 on Dec. 12, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gane has now had four straight bookings fall through, but he'll attempt to take on JDS to close out 2020. Gane hasn't fought since suffering a collapsed lung in March. His most recent fight was in December when he defeated Tanner Boser via unanimous decision at UFC Busan, bringing his professional record to 6-0. JDS most recently lost to Jair Rozenstruik via TKO (punches) at UFC 252 in August as he's now been knocked out in each of his last three fights amid durability concerns at age 36. Gane has advantages in both height and reach.
