Both of these fighters have shown tremendous success in their time with the UFC. They have become top tier names within the heavyweight division, and Gane looks to crack the top five.

Gane has shown to have an all around performance and can end a fight however he needs it to go. Even with four UFC bouts on his resume, he has taken care of fighters with ease.
Overall, this should be a fast paced striking match that could result in a knockout. Gane has shown to land a considerable amount of significant strikes each minute without absorbing too many, and that could be the difference.
