Ciryl Gane takes on one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time in Jon Jones this Saturday at UFC 285. Formerly a light heavyweight, Jones will be stepping up to the heavyweight division to take on Gane, in one of the most anticipated fights in recent memory.
Ciryl Gane is coming off a dominant knockout win against heavyweight Tai Tuivasa. Gane is among the most technically skilled strikers in the division’s history. Previously, he lost a decision to former heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
Cyril Gane Weight Set At 247.5 lbs
With weigh-ins tomorrow, BetOnline is offering odds on what Gane weighs in at UFC 285. Gane has odds set at 247.5 pounds.

There is a shroud of uncertainty following Ciryl “Bon Gamin” Gane’s training camp. Gane referred to himself as lazy, only training when he has a fight announced and scheduled. “I love grappling, but unfortunately, I’m lazy — that’s the truth,” Gane said. “I only train when a fight is announced… Professional opportunities outside of the sport. You can’t say no to all these things. I also have to give time to my family, and rest well.” Earlier this week, it appeared that Gane’s hand was swollen in a picture on social media.
Gane is a +145 underdog against Jon Jones for the heavyweight title.
UFC 285 Card
UFC 285 is fast approaching and it’s shaping up to be one of the most well-rounded events of the year. The main event features one of the best fights of the year, the Jones-Gane super fight but there are other fights on the card worth keeping an eye on. Valentina Shevchenko will be defending her belt in the co-main event against Alexa Grasso and undefeated welterweight sensation Shavkhat Rakhmanov will take on Geoff Neal. Mateusz Gamrot and Jalin Turner will also be a terrific bout, and many UFC fans will be waiting to catch the highly anticipated debut of middleweight Bo Nickal on the UFC 285 card.
