Jon Jones and Cyril Gane squared off against each other in the main event of UFC 285, which was a follow-up to the excellent UFC Women’s Flyweight Championship fight. Obviously, fans were extremely excited about the fight for a lot of reasons. Gane lost in the end and he is clearly angry and disappointed at the outcome.

The bout kicked off with Gane launching a kick that unfortunately landed on Jones’ groin, leading to a brief halt in the action. Once the fight resumed, Jones responded with a solid right hand, putting the pressure on Gane and pushing him back against the cage.

Taking advantage of an opening after Gane missed a punch, Jones executed a takedown just over a minute into the fight. Although Gane managed to stand up, Jones quickly brought him back down and attempted to lock in a guillotine choke.

Jones adjusted his grip and tightened the choke, forcing Gane to submit and securing a quick and decisive victory. With this impressive win in the first round, Jones claimed the heavyweight championship title.


While Francis Ngannou may have defeated him by unanimous decision at UFC 270 in January 2021, for Cyril Gane (11-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC), that loss pales in comparison to his recent defeat in the UFC 285 main event to Jon Jones (27-1 MMA, 20-1 UFC) by submission in just two minutes. At a post-fight news conference, Gane expressed the pain of his first real loss.

”When I think about the loss against Francis, it was not a big loss for me. I learned, but it was not too big. But this one is so painful. This one is a real loss. Now this is the past. I must go forward to see the future. I’m going to go straight back to the gym.”

Gane is now heading back to the drawing board to reassess his game after suffering his first defeat inside the distance. Despite putting in countless hours of work during his training camp, he is frustrated that he was not able to showcase his skills and improvements before the fight’s early conclusion.

“I’m disappointed, of course,” Gane stated. “The biggest feeling is really angry about myself. (I’m) really angry because, yes, we accepted this fight. It was not a short notice, but the time was not too longer. But man, we worked a lot. We worked a lot and we spent a lot of time with my team, with my sparring partners. I’m really angry at myself because I spent a lot of time with my partners and my coaches and my family. It didn’t have a good (reflection) during the fight. I’m really angry.”

Gane remains determined to move forward and return to the gym to reassess his game. Despite the setback, Gane’s mindset and commitment to improvement are a testament to his character and will undoubtedly serve him well in his future endeavors.
