    The California State Athletic Commission has released the total disclosed fight purses from UFC 270 last night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California – with Francis Ngannou netting $600,000 for his heavyweight championship unification win against Ciryl Gane. 

    Headlining UFC 270 last night, Batie, Cameroon native, Ngannou successfully unified the heavyweight championships against interim titleholder, Gane, scoring a unanimous decision win over the Frenchman.

    Arguably giving up the opening two rounds against the MMA Factory Paris mainstay, Ngannou surprisingly managed to score a multitude of successful takedowns – four, in fact, en route to stealing the third, fourth, and fifth round from Gane to take home decision win (48-47, 48-47, 49-46)

    In the night’s co-headliner, defending flyweight champion, Brandon Moreno dropped his undisputed title in a close back-and-forth unanimous decision defeat against three-time foe, Deiveson Figueiredo. 

    Starting brightly against the challenger, Moreno suffered a fight-altering third round knockdown against Figueiredo, who was also slamming outside leg kicks often and early to limit the forward pressure of the Baja California native.

    Becoming a two-time undisputed flyweight division, Figueiredo scored a unanimous decision (48-47, 48-47, 48-47) triumph, before offering to fight Moreno for a stunning fourth time, in the former champion’s native, Mexico.
