SJ - August 8, 2021

Ciryl Gane absolutely dominated Derrick Lewis on Saturday night in Houston at UFC 265.  In the third-round he stopped the Houston native to become the UFC interim heavyweight champion.

Here's how the fight ended.

There's no time for Gane to enjoy this one.  The dominant performance sets up a fight with his former training partner and current heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.

For Lewis it's back to the drawing board.  He's got really heavy hands that gives him a chance in every fight, but he was overmatched by Gane's game all night.

Gane versus Ngannou is going to be a good fight.  Not as entertaining as if Lewis was involved talking about his balls and taking a shit, but entertaining nonetheless.
