UFC 265 card: Derrick Lewis vs Ciryl Gane full fight preview
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight strikers Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane will clash for the interim title TONIGHT (Sat., Aug. 7, 2021) at UFC 265 from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Sure, this whole interim title situation is basically BS, a cheap ploy to move pay-per-view (PPV) buys while a healthy Francis Ngannou sits on the sidelines. Yet, in this case, perhaps it’s best not to consider the details and instead focus on a single thing: Derrick Lewis, power-punching Texan with more sly jokes than techniques, might get to raise a belt over his head.
That’d be pretty awesome.
Doing his damnedest to prevent that hilariously great moment is Gane, who happens to be his division’s best up-and-comer. We have been promised many “new breeds” of Heavyweights over the years, but Gane is the rare prospect who actually lives up to the concept, as his overall skill will certain force the division to elevate its game.
