UFC Paris Results: When, Where, and Who?

UFC Paris takes place on Saturday, September 3, at Accor Arena in Paris, France. The fight card is topped by a heavyweight contenders bout.

UFC Paris main event: Ciryl Gane vs. Tai Tuivasa

Frenchman and former interim UFC heavyweight champion Ciryl Gane (10-1) will attempt to get back into a title fight, as he welcomes the UFC to his home country for the first time in the promotion’s history. Gane failed in his attempt to become the unified heavyweight champion when he lost to Francis Ngannou at UFC 270 in early 2022. He is still ranked No. 1 in the division and a win over Tuivasa would keep him nipping at Ngannou’s heels.

Tai Tuivasa (14-3) went through a rough spell a few years ago, losing three bouts in a row, but has rebounded well with five knockout wins in a row. In that string, he defeated the likes of Stefan Struve, Augusto Sakai, and, most recently, Derrick Lewis. That shot him up to No. 3 in the division. If he makes Gane his sixth consecutive knockout, it would be hard to deny Tuivasa a crack at the belt.

UFC Paris co-main event: Robert Whittaker vs. Marvin Vettori

The UFC Paris co-main event is another one with title implications. Former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker (23-6) is etched at No. 1 in the rankings. But having lost twice to current titleholder Israel Adesanya, he needs to keep knocking off other contenders to try and earn another shot at the belt.

He faces No. 2 ranked Marvin Vettori (18-5-1), who also has two losses to Adesanya on his record. Much like Whittaker, he needs to keep knocking off the other top contenders if he wants another title shot while Adesanya holds the crown.

Next Up: UFC 279 Chimaev vs. Diaz

Following its French debut, the UFC returns to its home base in Las Vegas. UFC 279 features No. 3 ranked welterweight Khamzat Chimaev welcoming fan favorite Nate Diaz back to the Octagon at T-Mobile Arena. The bout is the undefeated Chimaev’s highest profile to date, but it also offers Diaz the opportunity to make a splash in what is the final bout on his current UFC contract.
