BJPENN.com Fighter Picks Derrick Lewis vs. Ciryl Gane:
Vicente Luque, UFC welterweight: That fight, man, it’s going to be a good one and I think Lewis will KO Gane in the second to become the interim champ.
Maycee Barber, UFC flyweight: I think Ciryl Gane will win a decision. He’ll avoid the power shots and just out volume Lewis.
Alonzo Menifield, UFC light heavyweight: Derrick Lewis by KO. That’s the only way he can win, but I think he catches Gane.
Mario Bautista, UFC bantamweight: That is a tough one. Gane has been looking but I have to go with Lewis with that one. He’ll get the KO in the second or third.
Casey Kenney, UFC bantamweight: I see Gane winning it by decision.
Brandon Royval, UFC flyweight: I think Gane. He is more technical but Lewis has the eraser where he only needs one, I keep going back-and-forth on it but I’ll say, Gane.
Ode Osbourne, UFC flyweight: That is a tough one. I’m going to say Gane because I think he is more well-rounded but Derrick Lewis only needs to land one.
Jerome Rivera, UFC flyweight: I really like that one. Ciryl Gane is super technical and Lewis will just wait for that power shot that won’t come. I see Gane just outpointing him for five rounds to win a decision.
