UFC 270: Ciryl Gane-Francis Ngannou, who is the bookmakers’ favorite?

The most anticipated fight of this beginning of the year. Ciryl Gane faces Francis Ngannou this Saturday night at UFC 270 for the heavyweight belt. And in Anaheim (United States), the Frenchman will enter the octagon as the favorite of the bookmakers against the Franco-Cameroonian champion.

In California, “Bon Gamin” will try to become the first French champion of the world’s largest MMA organization. But the task will not be easy for the resident of the MMA Factory in Paris, where he rubbed shoulders with Ngannou in the past. “The champion is a very big fighter, who has a lot of power, and he is the final boss of my video game,” he recently confided in an interview with The MMA Hour. But the 31-year-old Habs, from La Roche-sur-Yon, is undefeated with 10 wins in as many fights, including four by knockout and three by submission.

Impressive statistics that make Ciryl Gane the bookmakers’ favorite with odds of 1.66 on Winamax against 2.30 for Francis Ngannou, despite an equally impressive record with 16 wins in 19 fights (3 losses). The odds are practically identical on Unibet (1.66 for Gane, 2.25 for Ngannou), Zebet (1.62 for Gane, 2.25 for Ngannou), Parions Sport (1.65 for Gane, 2.05 for Ngannou ) or Betclic (1.65 for Gane, 2.25 for Ngannou). The trend is similar on the side of PMU, where the victory of the French is listed at 1.46 against 1.90 for the defending champion.

Will the bookmakers get it right? Ciryl Gane will he seize the supreme title? Response around 4am in the night from Saturday to Sunday, after a fight that has already caused a lot of talk. And it’s still far from over.
