VIDEO: Ciryl Gane, Tai Tuivasa strike a shoey pose at Eiffel Tower ahead of UFC Paris

·1 min read

The UFC will make it’s long-awaited debut in France on Saturday.

Ciryl Gane (10-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) meets Tai Tuivasa (15-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 209 at Accor Arena in Paris, and it’s only right for the headliners to face off in front of one of the world’s most famous landmarks.

The pair posed in front of the Eiffel Tower, but of course, Tuivasa had to add his own touch by busting out some sneakers for a shoey photo with “Bon Gamin,” who even guided Tuivasa on how to pose.

You can watch the video below courtesy of UFC Europe’s Instagram.

UFC Fight Night 209 takes place Saturday at Accor Arena in Paris. The card streams on ESPN+.
