Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane, round 5
Inside leg kick from Ngannou. Lead elbow and leg kick from Gane. Ngannou with a right. Gane lands two body shots. Gane with a left that gets through. Gane with a leg kick. Gane ducks under and gets a takedown. Ngannou gets an underhook and tries to power up. Gane won t let it happen and settles into his full guard. Gane attacks a leg but gives up position! He attacks the leg again! He s all over a knee bar but it doesn t look like Ngannou is in danger. Ngannou takes top position and is really close to mount! Two minutes to go. He s settled into half. But he hasn t thrown a punch. Gane turns the hips but they re pretty stalled out. They re posturing but nothing offensive is happening. I don t even know what to say. I guess 10-9 and 48-47 Ngannou?
Francis Ngannou defeated Cyril Gane via unanimous decision 48-47, 48-47, 49-46
