Although it seems like an absolute no-brainer that one of these heavyweight contenders will land a punch at one point of the fight, let’s take a look at their striking percentages and how often they land a big hit.

Inside the Numbers

Lewis vs Gane Odds & Stats

Fighter Odds Strikes Landed/Minute Striking Accuracy %
Derrick Lewis +260 2.59 50.0%
Ciryl Gane -335 5.13 54.0%

Being in the heavyweight division, both of these fighters can really pack a punch. However, Cyril Gane seems to have the upper hand when it comes to accuracy and efficiency.

Derrick Lewis is the more experienced fighter and might be able to evade some of Gane’s strategical jabs at any given point. That being said, it is very unlikely that either of these fighters doesn’t land a single punch throughout the fight. Neither fighter really prides themselves on takedowns, which makes this DraftKings UFC 265 promo even more delightful.
