Yes, I take him very seriously today. I’ve had a really great camp, and I’m continuing my camp. And yes of course a lot of people say, ‘you’ve already defeated this kind of guy.’ Yes, that’s true, but I won because I was really focused on my fight and I did very well. That’s why I won. Maybe it looked easy, but I was really focused and that’s why I won like that [against Derrick Lewis]. And tomorrow if I want to win against Tai Tuivasa I must be very focused on this guy, because he’s really dangerous. Everyone knows my footwork and something like that, but he also has his strengths. He likes to knock guys out. So I have to be really focused all the time.”

Gane is a big favorite in this fight and it is hard to argue, as he has lost just once in his career. I am not laying this type of price and although Gane should win, there is always some risk in a fight like this where each fighter is going to throw haymakers. I can’t see this fight going the distance, so I will lay the price and take the rounds to go under 4.5.
