If you haven’t heard of the up and coming UFC heavyweight Ciryl Gane,
you’re missing out; both on quality performances in The Octagon and witnessing a pristine unbeaten record.
The Frenchman first joined the UFC in the summer of 2019 and hasn’t failed to impress. With four victories and three finishes under his belt, it’s clear Gane is talented, articulate and determined. His diverse skill set led him to a second round stoppage over former champion Dos Santos in December, and this Saturday, February 27th he’s up against Jairzinho Rozenstruik in the main event.
And for the successor, it will mean a chance to challenge for heavyweight championship gold.
Whilst he’s a tough character in the ring, he is also probably one of the most humble fighters that the UFC has ever seen which is why we are delighted to have him as a Gym King Ambassador.
“We’re very excited to have Ciryl Gane become an ambassador for Gym King. He joins us at a time where MMA in France is growing from strength to strength. Ciryl will be a great asset to the GK brand, he lives and breathes our core brand values - Mindset, Resilience and Community. We look forward to supporting him on his journey to becoming a UFC champion in the near future.”
Jay Parker CEO of Gym King.
In UFC it’s usually the loudest characters that gain the most focus, but with Gane’s philosophy to prove himself in the ring and talk after, his performance thus far has shown that actions truly do speak louder than words; and the best of Ciryl Gane is still yet to come.
