Joseph Henle, Tiger Muay Thai head coach, breaks down the heavyweight title clash between Ciryl Gane and Francis Ngannou on Jan. 22 at UFC 270

Henle on why Gane’s tall stance could be a problem:

“Especially if Gane cannot get his back off the cage. It’s one thing to be high if you have three exits. It’s another when you only got two. When you can’t go backwards that makes the game much different. Because long arm coming here (left) or here (right). If you can duck under and go great but if that’s your game. And that’s not his game. He really needs to find a way to dictate the pace either staying within the center of the inside ring of the Octagon. I think that’s a safe place for him so he still got that stepback. But as soon as he steps back it gotta be getting back to that inner ring in order to give yourself the best possibility to have all his exits and use his feet properly.”
