It is an event. This Saturday, Paris will host at the Accor Arena, the very first MMA competition organized by the UFC in France. With the highlight of the show: the fight between the French Ciryl Gane and the Australian, world number 3, Tai Tuisava.
Four days before the long-awaited day, the UFC organizes an “open workout”, open to the public. Around fifty young people gathered in the Salle Wagram to hope to catch a glimpse of the stars.
Presentation of the fighters, photo shoot, demonstration of force… MMA enthusiasts are served.
Ciryl Gane, from La Roche-sur-Yon in Vendée, is one of the best fighters in the world in the heavyweight category. In the running for the belt in this category, he lost a crucial fight last January against Francis Ngannou. In front of his fans, he assured him “If I fight, it’s for my family, my wife and my children, but also for you”.
His goal on Saturday is therefore victory against Tai Tuisava, the Australian used to winning his fights by knockout, from the first round. The task will be tough.
