Francis Ngannou defended his belt at UFC 270 and unified the title using a weapon no one thought to be in his arsenal: grinding.

Ngannou repeatedly took down interim champ Ciryl Gane, outwrestling his former training partner in the championship rounds to earn scores of 48-47 twice and 49-46.

In the co-main event, Deiveson Figueiredo retook the flyweight title in his third meeting with Brandon Moreno, which ended in unanimous scorecards of 48-47 for the Brazilian.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC 270 main card.
