Minty Bets is joined by Kevin Iole to preview UFC Fight Night main event.
MINTY BETS: Welcome to Mad Bets, everyone. I am Minty Bets, and joining me is Kevin Iole. We're here to talk some UFC Fight Night this Saturday in Paris, France.
Now, the heavyweight main event will be between Ciryl Gane, minus 550, versus Tai Tuivasa, plus 400. Now, look, I mean, Bam Bam is coming off of five straight knockout wins, and I want to bet on him so badly, but I don't think I want to go against Ciryl in his home country. Kevin, what do you think?
KEVIN IOLE: Yeah, you know, I'm with you there. I mean, it's a tough one because Tai has got that power to knock anybody out, as he proved against Derrick Lewis, but you're facing a different level of opponent. Ciryl Gane is rated number one at heavyweight. He's probably the best athlete in the UFC overall. He's a huge guy. He's played professional soccer. He can dunk a basketball. He's just so good at so many different things.
And he has a style that I think is difficult for Tuivasa. You know, he's got wrestling. He's got great footwork. He is a striker himself. He cannot afford to get caught by Tai, but he also knows that he can control where the fight goes.
So I like Ciryl Gane to win this by finish actually. I think he's going to get a finish. So I would bet Ciryl Gane, and I would also bet under the distance here, because I think you're going to see him probably take him down and maybe finish him with some ground and pound.
MINTY BETS: All right. No shoeys for Tuivasa. Thank you so much, Kevin.
KEVIN IOLE: Thank you, Minty. Appreciate it.
