After a deflating loss to Jon Jones for the vacant heavyweight title in March, there was some mystery around how Gane (12-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) would move forward in his career. He got a hometown headliner against Spivac (16-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) at Accor Arena in Paris, and responded in resounding fashion with a second-round TKO to get back in the win column.
Although no one is ready to entertain the idea of Gane getting a rematch with Jones at this point, he certainly is worthy of another significant fight in the division. But who should it be?
Watch the video above for thoughts and analysis on Gane’s future after his UFC Fight Night 226 victory.
