Lewis vs. Gane Odds: Overwhelming Amount of Bettors Backing Underdog Lewis

  • Lewis vs. Gane odds
  • Derrick Lewis the underdog against Cyril Gane
  • Bettors backing Lewis at big odds

Derrick Lewis has had one of the most interesting UFC careers ever. He’s not some super technical mixed martial artist. He’s just a massive dude looking to throw hands, and all he has to do is connect once in order to end a fight.

The only fighter in recent memory that has been able to trade blows with him and come out victorious was Junior Dos Santos, thanks in large part to an onslaught of body strikes that rendered Lewis ineffective.

UFC 265’s main event features Derrick Lewis going head to head with unbeaten Cyril Gane with the interim heavyweight title on the line.

The latest Lewis vs. Gane odds have Gane as a massive favorite, but the betting public is backing the underdog in Derrick Lewis.

Derrick Lewis

If entertaining sound bites and highlight-reel knockouts are your things and you’ve never seen Derrick Lewis fight before, tonight may be the time you fall in love with The Black Beast.

Derrick Lewis is not a polished mixed martial artist. He doesn’t pretend to be. He simply has enough experience grappling to buy himself time to unleash monstrous right hands in an attempt to end the match.

If Derrick Lewis is going to beat Cyril Gane, it’s most likely going to come via stoppage. Lewis weighed in more than 17 pounds heavier than Gane. He’ll never be accused of being in great shape. As a matter of fact, he has to cut weight to make the heavyweight threshold. But he’s also the most devastating knockout artist in the UFC.

Lewis will stand there and trade blows with anyone. Just ask Francis Ngannou. The current UFC heavyweight champion’s last loss came at the hands of Lewis.

Cyril Gane

Gane, while not having a ton of fighting experience under his belt, is still the more polished fighter between the two.

Gane has had nine professional fights and has won each one of them, but he’s never faced a fighter with as much power behind their hands as Lewis.

Cyril Gane has had six fights in the UFC, he’s won three by decision, two by submission and one by TKO. If e’s going to end this fight early, it’ll likely be through his grappling and submission game rather than his striking.

The last time Cyril Gane stepped into the octagon was against Alexander Volkov, a fight he won unanimously and somewhat easily via decision. Lewis has also beaten Volkov, but it came via a last-second KO in a fight he was losing.
