UFC 265 is going to be a big knock out fight.
Below is a free betting pick for the Derrick Lewis vs. Ciryl Gane tonight Sunday, at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time 9:00 PM PST. The play is courtesy of the rundown:
Cyril Gane should win the vast majority of minutes in this Interim Heavyweight Title fight, though I suspect he’ll get caught and his chin will be tested at some point. Meanwhile, Derrick Lewis doesn’t rate well by most categories that factor into a handicap, but his power is so devastating that it can completely erase all of his disadvantages instantly.
A five-round matchup plays comfortably to Gane’s advantage. It’s virtually impossible to envision Lewis winning a five-round decision unless he secures two or more knockdowns. Gane should start to ramp up the pace and pressure in the later rounds as Lewis slows, and I doubt that this fight goes the full 25 minutes as a result.

I initially planned to bet Gane to win in Rounds 4, 5, or by Decision, and I think that’s a fine bet, but I prefer the Gane to win and Over 2.5 Rounds prop.
Pick: Ciryl Gane and Over 2.5 Rounds (+110
