Ciryl Gane is a French professional MMA fighter. He currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Heavyweight division, where he is a former Interim UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Early Life, Family, Education

In La Roche-sur-Yon, France, on April 12, 1990, Gane was born under the sign of the Ram. He also keeps a lot of information about his early years, family, and education to himself.

He must also be respecting his parent’s privacy because he hasn’t revealed it yet.

Therefore, all we can do is wait for him to start talking, and we’ll let you know as soon as that time comes.

Introduction to MMA

Unlike other fighters, Ciryl Gane’s passion for mixed martial arts did not develop during his formative years.

He apparently only became interested in it a few years ago, and before that, he had been involved in Muay Thai.

“I’ve only been interested in combat sports for few years. Before I was in basketball, I was studying parallel studies in BTS management. It was complicated.”

-Ciryl Gane

Ciryl Gane was a two-time national Muay Thai champion before getting into MMA. In addition to that, he has a 12-0 career record in Muay Thai and is unbeaten in that sport.

Gane met Fernand Lopez during that time, who introduced him and helped coach him for MMA.

Thus, Gane made his debut in MMA on August 2, 2018, marking his first foray into the sport 2018.

Evidently, Gane’s debut at TKO Fight Night 1 against Bobby Sullivan went well.

They squared off in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, where they battled it out for the uncontested TKO heavyweight title.

Overall, Gane won the fight by front choking his opponent to submit him in round one.

Similar to this, Gane had three TKO victories prior to joining the UFC, including his opening contest. He won every one of the three contests.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)

Ciryl Gane signed a UFC contract and began competing just one year after starting MMA. On August 10, 2019, he made his promotional debut in a matchup with Raphael Pessoa.

As a result, they squared off in Uruguay’s Montevideo at UFC on ESPN+ 14: Shevchenko vs. Carmouche 2.

Gane won the match with an arm-triangle choke at the conclusion of the first round while it was being broadcast live on Prelims.

Ciryl Gane vs. Junior dos Santos

On December 12, 2020, almost a year after they first met, Ciryl Gane and Junior dos Santos fought. Their fight reportedly took place at UFC 256 at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada (US).

With 21-8 at the time, Santos was having a bad run in his career; it was like entering the lion’s den.

As the fight went on, Gane was openly striking from the inner core while Santos attempted to take the outside position.

However, Gane’s technical knockout of Santos brought the fight to a close in the second round.

Ciryl Gane vs Derrick Lewis

At UFC 26 on August 7, 2021, Gane and Lewis squared off for the interim UFC heavyweight title.

He used TOK to win the one-sided battle in this match. He was also successful in winning the night’s best performance prize.

On January 22, 2022, at UFC 270, the professional MMA fighter will compete against Francis Ngannou for the UFC Heavyweight Championship.


The contest between Ciryl Gane and Shamil Abdurakhimov in 2020 was eagerly anticipated. In fact, they were scheduled to fight on April 18, but Gane was forced to withdraw from the contest.

As an example, Ciryl Gane experienced pneumothorax (commonly known as a collapsed lung or abnormal collection of air between the lung and chest wall) while he was training.

As a result, this is not Gane’s first injury in the UFC. He has actually had this issue ever since making his arena debut in the early days.

As a result, Gane withdrew from UFC 249, and their fight was later rescheduled for July 11, 2020, at UFC 251.

Similarly, Shamil Abdurakhimov withdrew from the fight this time for an unknown reason.

In place of Shamil, Sergei Pavlovich was scheduled to fight Gane; however, Pavlovich withdrew due to an injury as well.

Next, the third time that Gane and Shamil’s match had been fixed. According to the news, they were scheduled to duel at UFC 253 on September 26, 2020.

The fight was then moved to UFC Fight Night 180 on October 18, 2020, as part of the agreement.

After the game, many people’s opinions of how it ended were debatable. These very ideas sparked arguments regarding Gane’s elbow attack.

The sources claim that Gane’s elbow attack was unlawful because Santos had backed up and turned away from Gane.

However, Gane depicted the blow that struck Santos in the back of the head.

Although such an attack can occasionally be quite dangerous and have lasting effects, neither the referee nor anyone else objected to it. It was therefore regarded as legal.

Joe Rogan, Daniel Cormier, and Joe Anik were the commentators for that same match, and they agreed that everything was fine. All things considered, Gane claimed victory.

After saying this, Santos was angry and complained about the attack, but he ultimately congratulated his opponent because no one questioned him.

Personal Life

His relationships are more intimate than his birthdays, home, parents, and other details. There haven’t been any scandals involving Gane for that subject to date.

He may be an expert at maintaining his privacy, but Gane is unquestionably still a single man.

This is due to Gane’s apparent involvement in his games following, of course, his romantic relationship with mixed martial arts.
