UFC Fight Night 226: Fight date, schedule, undercard & betting odds

Heavyweight rivals Ciryl Gane and Sergey Spivak go toe-to-toe in UFC Fight Night 226 on Saturday September 2 in the main event of a nine-fight card.

Former interim UFC Heavyweight champion Gane will fight in front of his home crowd, going up against Moldovan MMA star Spivak.

It’s the first time these two fighters have met, with the 33-year-old Frenchman giving away five years to his younger opponent.

Gane goes into this clash having lost two of his last three bouts, while underdog Spivak goes in search of four UFC victories in a row.

Although there will be no official belts on the line, the interest in only the second UFC event in France will add to the excitement in the build up.

Ciryl Gane, nicknamed ‘Good Kid’, will go into the fight as the favourite despite recent losses, especially as he will have the support of the majority of the Paris crowd.
