Fans Line-up to Meet Ciryl Gane in Paris, Following Championship Win (Video)
By FCF Staff
Ciryl Gane’s popularity seems to be steadily rising in his native France, following his championship win at UFC 265.
Gane stopped Derrick Lewis at the Houston event earlier this month to win the interim heavyweight title.
More recently, the French fighter posted the video below, which shows fans lining up outside the MMA Factory gym in Paris, where Gane (10-0) trains, for a chance to meet the new champ.
Merci tout le monde pour ce moment incroyable, ça me fait chaud au cœur de voir cet engouement, c’était important pour moi de partager ca avec vous. 🙏🏽
