Ciryl Gane vs. Tai Tuivasa Prediction

UFC Paris Gane vs.Tuivasa prediction is courtesy of Tapology Fight Predictions.

Projected winner: Ciryl Gane (84%)
Projected method of victory: KO/TKO (51%)

Ciryl Gane is a heavy favorite here for a reason. This is a fighter that saw his 10-fight win streak end in a failed bid to claim the UFC Heavyweight title his last time out. He is going to be motivated to put on a show and has a massive six-inch reach advantage over Tuivasa. Look for him to take advantage of that fact.

It’s easy to back Gane as a -600 favorite, but betting on which way the fight will end is the risky part. Three of his last four bouts have gone the full five rounds. However, Tuivasa is a fighter that loves to throw punches in bunches early and has had only two of his 17 fights go three rounds or more.

GANE VS. TUIVASA PREDICTION: I’ll take Gane winning by KO/TKO (+130) here.
