For all the fight aficionados out there, MMA Hook is your go-to source for UFC Paris coverage, including a live blog for the Gane vs. Spivac marquee fight, and much more happening at Accor Arena this Saturday.
Stepping into the limelight for the main event is Ciryl Gane, the ex-interim heavyweight titleholder, eager to bounce back from a humbling tap-out loss to Jon Jones. He’s squaring off with the up-and-coming firecracker Serghei Spivac. Gane has had two shots at the undisputed UFC heavyweight title, while Spivac is hungry for his first big break, especially after thrashing his last three rivals.
Don’t sleep on the co-main event either, folks. Hailing from France herself, Manon Fiorot is gunning for the most monumental victory of her MMA career as she faces off against two-time strawweight champion Rose Namajunas. Should Fiorot seize the win, she’ll have a pristine 6-0 UFC record. Meanwhile, Namajunas is venturing into the 125-pound weight class for the very first time. Whoever comes out on top in this duel is likely the next challenger for the coveted flyweight title.
