Jim West, MMA Gold head coach, explains what separates Ciryl Gane from Francis N’Gannou and how that will give him the opportunity to become the undisputed heavyweight champion at UFC 270.
West on Gane versus N’Gannou:
“I almost have a really hard time picking against Ciryl Gane for some reason. I don’t know why, maybe it’s just a gut feeling. I don’t know if Francis is going to pull it off. I think Ciryl’s going to win. I really do.
“I see Cyril having better basics than everyone else in the UFC’s heavyweight division. I think that’s what is winning him the fights. I don’t see him doing anything spectacular. I just see him doing everything pretty well. Whoever has better basics wins and I think Cyril has what I consider advanced basics in all aspects. And I think that’s what is going to win him the fight against Francis.
“I don’t see Cyril dominate like he did against Derrick [Lewis] but I do see him winning. I do see his basics being better in every aspect than Francis.”
