    Do you guys think he is champ material?

    I personally think he is the HW GOAT IN THE MAKING

    I think he's very good and very underrated. As far as skillset? Easily top 5. However.. Idk how his tenacity is or his fight IQ. He could go herp derp once hit or make poor decisions. Time will tell. I've called him to be future HW champ though.

    He’s a pretty quick heavy weight and not a small heavy weight to boot. Some of the techniques he uses, I don’t see other HW successfully use.

    He hasn't been tested enough imo. If the HW division wasn't so weak we wouldn't see him ranked so high. I think his timidness is because he doesn't have a chin, and as soon as Volkov touches it with something heavy, and he will, it will answer a lot of questions about what type of fighter Gane is. He's good but levels away from elite at this point

    Oh chit, he’s fighting Über Volkov, right? Well that’s a really good test to see just how good he is or isn’t.

    He could easily kill a scrawny, 140lbs dude like you, TS. He is that good.

    Yeah if he can beat uber volkov, then we have something to work with. Uber volkov is the next challenger to franny that he hasn’t already KO stiff besides Gane.

    Very good, potential to be the best but needs 1 or 2 more fights to prove himself.

    Him against a striker like Volk and a wrestler like Blaydes would tell us all that we need to know.

    He's suffering from his level of competition. So far he's looked really good but he hasn't had a real tough opponent yet, but that changes with the Volkov fight. Hopefully he lives up to the hype

    Very good, but his lack of killer instinct and power feels like it will haunt him for his division. We all saw what Lewis did to Volkov, I suspect something similar will happen if he fights Gane. Even though on paper Gane should be able to shut down Lewis easily.

    Could be all or nothing still so many questions to still be answered with him.. Passing with flying colours thus far though.

    He rocked Derrick Lewis multiple times when they fought lol. If not for a last second punch by Lewis,Volkov walks away with a dominant win. He has power is what I'm saying, and his range will help him land for sure imo. I think Gane gets finished
