“This will be a pleasure if I win [at UFC 270] against Francis, yes I want to fight against Jon Jones,” Gane said at the UFC 270 media day. “This is the next one.
“A lot of people talk about that already because we are maybe the more well-rounded guys in this division and a lot of people talk about a technical fight. It will probably be a good matchup. Yes, if it’s possible, we’re going to do this.”
“This is not just only the power against the technique,” Gane said. “It’s not only the power he has. He has a fight IQ also. He is technical. I am more technical than him and I have power, also. This is not exactly the power against the technique but we will see.”
“This is a new era in the UFC,” Gane said. “You have guys like Tom Aspinall, another new guy in this division, we are a little bit different. I think we understand something more and that’s why it’s going to be different.
“It’s not a disrespect for [Alistair] Overeem or Jairzinho [Rozenstruik], these are excellent fighters, too but this is really different.”
