·6 min read

Francis Ngannou delivered in the most important moment of his career Saturday when he defended his heavyweight title against Ciryl Gane in the UFC 270 headliner.

Ngannou (17-3 MMA, 12-2 UFC) fended off former teammate and interim titleholder Gane (10-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) in unification matchup at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., earning a unanimous decision win to secure his first successful title defense.

With the win, Ngannou hits a curious stage in his UFC run, because there’s now a countdown clock for his contract to expire and he said he won’t fight again under current terms.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Ngannou’s title victory over Gane at UFC 270.
