The silence of Cyryl Gane to the challenges of Jailton Malhadinho has been bothering the Brazilian fighter. On social media, the Bahian demanded the position of the former interim champion in the heavyweight division (up to 120,2kg) and again offered to face the Frenchman in Paris, at the event on September 28th. The native of Brazil is looking to get closer to his first UFC title fight.

"Cyryl Gane, come on, friend. Main fight in France, on September 28th. The winner fights for the belt. It's me and you. You've faced everyone at the top except me. I’m waiting”, wrote Malhadinho, on his profile on X, formerly Twitter.

Malhadinho's insistence comes after the Brazilian won again in the UFC. In his last commitment, the Bahian performed in front of Alexander Romanov, finishing his rival in lightning fashion.

Today, Jailton occupies seventh place in the heavyweight rankings. Gane, in turn, is in second place.


Former interim champion of the category, Ciryl has not competed since September of last season. At the end of 2023, the athlete knocked out Sergey Spivak, maintaining its leading position in the category.

Despite Malhadinho's insistence, Gane does not hide the plan for his next challenge. The Frenchman seeks to face Tom aspinall, current interim heavyweight champion.


Targeted by Gane, the Englishman has a date and opponent to play. The athlete must be one of the attractions of the UFC London, which takes place on July 27th.
