Tomorrow night will see Francis Ngannou make his first defence of his UFC heavyweight title against Ciryl Gane.
This will be a fight which Jon Jones will have his eyes closely set on as he still prepares for his imminent heavyweight debut in the UFC.
In the lead up to this event, there has been a lot of talk as of whether or not Jones will actually be in attendance to build towards a fight against the winner of the main event, many people believe that this would be a great marketing move by the UFC.
