At the beginning of September, Ciryl Gane was on the bill for the main event of the MMA meeting organized in the heart of the Accor Arena in Paris. An exceptional evening since for the first time the American organization of the UFC installed its octagon in France on the occasion of the UFC Fight Night Paris. Additional proof of the democratization of this sport in France, the fights took place in front of more than 17,000 white-hot people. Authorized on the territory for only two years, the discipline proves every day that “MMA is a sport in its own right”, as always emphasizes with conviction the former champion Xavier Foupa-Pokam, consultant for La Chaîne l’Équipe. After her great victory by KO, in the third round, against the Australian Tai Tuisova, Ciryl Gane lent herself to the game of The question box (Canal+), responding frankly to the various questions put to him.

Cyril Gane felt more pressure ahead of his fight in Paris

Nicknamed “Good Kid” in MMA, he notably affirmed that it was possible to be nice in this singular environment: “With my opponent, we sympathized before, during and after the fight”, said the Vendéen (with no doubt a hint of irony). But during this passage, he also returned to his defeat recorded on January 23 against Francis Ngannou: “It was an extremely close fight. He was much more mature and used his experience. I was very frustrated at the end of the fight”. Before stepping back into the arena a few days ago, the French champion admitted to feeling more pressure than usual: “You have to succeed in bouncing back after a defeat and bouncing back in front of your audience is all the more complicated”.

“Cinema? I sowed little things”

Asked about the greatest champions in MMA, Ciryl Gane quoted “GSP, alias Georges St-Pierre, in number 1. But also: Jon Jones and Khabib Nurmagomedov”. During his time in The Question Box, he also had to recognize the author of the following statement: “Ciryl Gane is a pride for France this guy”. Not finding the answer, the right-hand injured fighter hit the famous red buzzer with his left hand. Then, another quote from the same author appeared on the screen: “It’s crazy to be so nice and at the same time to be able to fuck you so easily”. The answer then became clear: “I recognize his phrasing. It’s Franck Gastambide“. Then came a question about a possible conversion to the big screen after his appearance in the series Valid. On this subject Ciryl Gane admits that it is an environment that attracts her: “I could go a long way. But it’s like everything, it takes time. You have to know how to do things in order. I’ve already sown little things… But yes, I would like well being an actor supported the tricolor star. After the laurels of MMA, soon Cannes, the Cesars…? Case to follow!
