UFC 270 was the first pay-per-view event of 2022 and featured two title fights. Former teammates Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane clashed in a highly anticipated title unifier for the main event.

Meanwhile, Ciryl Gane switched to MMA in 2018 after building a highly decorated kickboxing resume. Going into his matchup against Ngannou, 'Bon Gamin' held an undefeated 10-0 record.

Moreno and Figueiredo fought to a majority draw in their first encounter at UFC 256 in December 2020. 'The Assassin Baby' dispatched Figueiredo via third-round submission in the rematch at UFC 263 to be crowned the champion.
