In the co-main event, Manon Fiorot made a strong case for a shot at the women’s Flyweight title by defeating former champion Rose Namajunas.
Ciryl Gane’s Next Challenge
After his impressive victory, Ciryl Gane is now eyeing a title eliminator fight against Sergei Pavlovich. While Pavlovich is a top contender, the timing of the Jon Jones vs Stipe Miocic title fight complicates matters. Gane and Pavlovich should face off to determine the next title shot.
Manon Fiorot’s Path to the Title

Exciting Lightweight Matchup
Benoit Saint-Denis has been on a tear since moving down to the Lightweight division. His victory over Thiago Moises showcased his skills and potential. A matchup against Joel Alvarez, who is coming off a submission win over Marc Diakiese, would be an exciting clash of styles.
Volkan Oezdemir bounced back with a submission win over Bogdan Guskov. While he may not be matched up against someone ranked above him, a fight against Azamat Murzakanov, currently ranked 12th, could elevate his status in the Light Heavyweight division.
Gomis’ Featherweight Ascent
William Gomis continues to impress in the Featherweight division with his win over Yanis Ghemmouri. A matchup against veteran Billy Quarantillo would be a significant step up in competition and could propel Gomis into the Top 15.
Charrière’s Explosive Debut
Morgan Charrière made a statement in his UFC debut by stopping Manolo Zecchini with a technical knockout. A matchup against Sergey Morozov, who is on a two-fight win streak, would provide an intriguing clash of styles.
