Ciryl Gane emerged victorious at UFC Paris, completely dominating his opponent. However, not everyone was convinced by “Bon Gamin’s” performance. Critics were quick to voice their opinions after his fight with Serghei Spivac, and fans didn’t hold back either.
With the home crowd behind him, Gane had no choice but to come out on top, especially after his humiliating loss to Jon Jones in March. Having already won at UFC Paris a year ago, Gane repeated his success in the French capital with a knockout victory over Serghei Spivac. The Frenchman made easy work of his opponent, even delivering the second largest strike differential in heavyweight history (109 to 11).
On paper, “Bon Gamin” showcased an outstanding performance and sent a violent message to the rest of his division. However, on social media, it’s a different story. Few were truly impressed outside of France, and fans believe that this performance does not prove that Gane has what it takes to be the heavyweight champion. Criticisms have been pouring in from all directions.
Ciryl Gane’s victory falls short of convincing the fans
Ciryl Gane delivered the main event at UFC Paris, adding another win to his record by dominating Serghei Spivac. However, it will take much more for him to regain popularity with fans outside of France. In their eyes, he still doesn’t measure up to Jon Jones, and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon.
