Ciryl Gane Reflects on Devastating Loss to Jon Jones

Ciryl Gane faced a shocking defeat in the main event of UFC 285 at the hands of Jon Jones. Speaking at the post-fight press conference, Gane didn’t offer any excuses for his loss and appeared frustrated with himself. He said, “the biggest feeling is angry about myself. Really angry.”

Gane had entered the fight high on confidence after a knockout win over Tai Tuivasa in France, but failed to provide much resistance to Jones, who returned to competition after a three-year hiatus. Gane had no qualms admitting that everything about his performance was disappointing.

Gane’s grappling limitations were again exposed in the fight as Jones swiftly took him down and finished him with a guillotine choke. This is the second time Gane’s ground game has been exploited by an opponent, with Francis Ngannou also defeating him earlier this year.

He believes that with time and effort, his reflexes and skills can be improved. Gane expressed, “this is a real loss. So now this is the past, and I must go forward to see the future and I’m going to go straight back to the gym.”

Gane’s determination to improve and learn from his loss is admirable. The upcoming months will be crucial for him to work on his weaknesses and come back stronger than before. Fans can look forward to seeing Gane back in the Octagon soon, eager to redeem himself.
