On Sept. 3, the UFC makes its debut in France with a card headlined by arguably the nation’s greatest MMA export, Ciryl Gane.

In the main event of UFC Paris, two fighters in the top five of the Sportsnaut UFC heavyweight rankings in Gane and Tai Tuivasa will battle with hopes of scoring a championship opportunity in their next fights. The matchup is a wild clash of styles between two successful strikers who do things in very different ways.

The card from inside the Accor Arena also features former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker and a barrage of Octagon veterans like Marvin Vettori, Joaquin Buckley, Nasrat Haqparast, and John Makdessi.
