The UFC hosts its first-ever French event this weekend when the flagship mixed martial arts promotion travels to Paris.
Hometown heavyweight Ciryl Gane will face Tai Tuivasa in the main event as each fighter tries to carve their way to a title shot.
Gane held the interim title from last August until this January when he was surprisingly surpassed by former teammate Francis Ngannou – the knockout specialist – who defeated the previously unbeaten Technician to unify the heavyweight belts.
Meanwhile, Australia’s Tuivasa last competed in February, beating former title challenger Derrick Lewis in spectacular fashion to extend his winning streak to five fights and continue his rise in the rankings.
Here’s everything you need to know.

UFC Paris takes place on Saturday September 3rd.
Prelims begin at 5pm BST (9am PT, 11am CT, 12pm ET), with the main card following at 8pm BST (12pm PT, 2pm CT, 3pm ET).
