UFC 265: Derrick Lewis vs Ciryl Gane Purse, Payouts, Salaries, Bonus, Fight Card & More

UFC scheduled another pay-per-view bout on August 7 between Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane at UFC 265 in Houston, Texas. However, compared to the Poirier-McGregor fight at UFC 264, tonight’s fight might not look fascinating. But it is not bad either, as many talented fighters geared up to get inside the octagon tonight to show their skills.

However, Lewis and Ciryl Gane will fight for an interim UFC Heavyweight Championship while José Aldo and Pedro Munhoz will feature as a co-main event.
