The South Korean card just got a little more interesting! In fact, Ciryl Gane will fight against Canadian Tanner Boser on December 21.
Gane just fought at UFC Singapore. He defeated Don’Tale Mayes by third round heel hook in an incredible performance. He not only won the 50k performance bonus but got talked about all over the world. After only 5 pro fights, he is already considered as one of the sport’s brightest prospects!
In Busan, Gane will fight against Canadian Tanner Boser. He also just won his UFC debut in Boston. He defeated Daniel Spitz by unanimous decision after seeing his Edmonton fight cancelled at the last minute. Opposite to Gane, Boser has a lot of MMA experience as his fight against the Frechman will be his 24th.
This fight will be special for the Canadian MMA fanbase. In fact, Boser has long been the number one Heavyweight in the country before entering the UFC. Ciryl Gane also developped a big fanbase in Canada, especially in Quebec, where he was the TKO champion.
Gane will not be the only TKO alumni on the card as Charles Jourdain and Marc-André Barriault will both fight on the card. Jourdain faces off against popular Doo Ho Choi in his first UFC fight at 145lbs. Barriault will try to finally get his first UFC win against Jun Yong Park.
The UFC on ESPN+ 23 card will take place on December 21 in Busan, South Korea. The event will be headlined by a fight between the Korean Zombie and Brian Ortega.
