    I think he could shine against someone like Volkov or Overeem. Hope one comes to fruition!

    I hope is not Walt Harris or Volkov.
    I don't wanna see any of those guys losing right now, they need to surpass all the oldies in the rankings.

    Top 10 HW = Top 50 in any other division.

    Probably gonna roll out some shopworn decrepit fighter like AA or Reem.

    I hope it's not Harris. Don't want to see him lose.
    Curious as to who it'll be though, as Gane has really impressed me big time so far.

    Tbh, I think the guy's a little untested at this point, and possibly a premature hype job. All of those guys are a solid two steps above any of his UFC opponents. Doesn't make sense for Harris or Volkov, as they're coming off wins and shouldn't have to face a guy ranked #15. Overeem and Abdurakhimov are much better options.

    Agree except for Abdurakhimov. He's a bum and overranked.

    I think Gane would piece up BB just like Volkov did except Gane would not get caught in the end :)

    I tend to agree, but I feel it’s a great welcoming gift

    I can see two fights made with Harris, Overeem, Volkov and Gane. Any combination with these 4 is great.

    Or it could be Gane vs Shamil to test him with a wrestler.

    Just listen to the podcast, the fight is probably being announced this week, and his opponent is a top 10, but barely. So basically it's Shamil, or possibly Harris.

    WAR Gane.

    The dude has some serious potential. 6 fights in and he fights like a veteran. Barely gets hit and does not expose himself.

    Him vs Volkov would be a highly technical fight.

    Black Beast is kind of busy having a Swedish snack in one of the most random match ups ever:
