Ciryl Gane couldn’t have asked for a better homecoming.
The former UFC interim heavyweight champion was one of four bonus winners on Saturday, taking home an extra $50,000 for his ‘Performance of the Night’ victory over Serghei Spivac in the main event of UFC Paris. Gane dominated Spivac en route to a second-round TKO finish in front of a raucous crowd of his countrymen at the Accor Arena.
The night’s other ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus went to another Frenchman, UFC newcomer Morgan Charriere, who scored a highlight-reel first-round knockout of Manolo Zecchini in his much-anticipated promotional debut.
UFC Paris took place Sept. 2 and aired live on ESPN+.
