  • Ciryl Gane is the former UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion.
  • Gane currently ranks as the number-one heavyweight contender.
  • Gane will face Jon Jones on March 4, 2023, for the UFC Heavyweight Title.

After falling short of becoming an undisputed UFC champion, Ciryl Gane returned to the winner’s circle with a third-round knockout of Tai Tuivasa in his latest bout, which occurred in September 2022 in front of his compatriots in Paris, France.

His background as a kickboxer has presented a huge problem for the heavyweight division due to his speed and unique skill set. This has become a key for him in making a case to be a household name in online sports betting via the UFC odds.

But when will the French MMA superstar return to action? And who will he fight next?

When is Ciryl Gane’s Next Fight?

Ciryl Gane will face the former undisputed UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones on March 4, 2023, as they headline UFC 285. The vacant UFC Heavyweight Title will be on the line for this gigantic showdown inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

This bout was also the viable alternative for the supposed Francis Ngannou-Jon Jones clash that fell off after the UFC released Ngannou due to failed contract negotiations.
