I used to be on an increase and so they put me in Brazil in opposition to Blaydes, who was one of many worst match-ups for me, so I don’t suppose that is smart.”

Gane has solely misplaced twice in 14 skilled MMA bouts, a pair of championship clashes with Jon Jones and Francis Ngannou. Almeida received seven of his eight UFC bouts with six finishes to his credit score.

“My supervisor has talked to the UFC about my curiosity on this combat, I personally talked to [UFC matchmaker] Mick [Maynard] about this combat, and I’ve referred to as out Gane on social media,” Almeida stated. “I’m simply ready for this combat to occur.
