UFC 270: Ngannou vs. Gane - Winners and Losers

The UFC’s first pay-per-view card of 2022 was high on excitement and drama. The event saw some impressive debuts, a title change hands and another title unified without the UFC president bothering to step into the octagon and present that champ with his belt.

In the main event, embattled UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou retained his title with a decision win over Ciryl Gane. The co-main event of the evening — and the “Fight of the Night” — saw Deiveson Figueiredo regain the UFC flyweight title in a trilogy fight against Brandon Moreno. Also on the main card, Said Nurmagomedov made a positive and emphatic statement in his first fight in over a year.
