Watch Key Moments From UFC 270 in Slow-Motion – Francis Ngannou Slams Ciryl Gane, Figueiredo Knocks Down Moreno

Francis Ngannou reigned supreme as he unified the heavyweight championship with a unanimous decision victory over Ciryl Gane to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world here inside Honda Center in the main event of UFC 270. In the co-main event, belts changed hands against as Deiveson Figueiredo reclaimed the flyweight gold with a unanimous decision victory over Brandon Moreno to become a two-time Flyweight champion of the world. 

UFC 270 was a huge success, with a record gate of $5 million. Moreover, it broke the record for the highest gate at this arena, beating the previous record-holder, Rolling Stones. UFC President Dana White made the UFC PPV more controversial after he decided to remain absent from the post-fight press conference. He was present during the pre-fight press conference. Additionally, the presence of Mike Tyson, Nate Diaz, Brian Ortega, among several others added more charm to the event, with both the title fights living up to their expectations. 

While there were several key moments outside of the Octagon that made this UFC PPV a talking point among fight fans, it goes without saying, there were many key moments inside the Octagon too. With some incredible action inside the cage, the main event and co-main event gave way to some of the craziest moments in the UFC.
