Abdurakhimov had won three straight fights before losing to Curtis Blaydes in September.

Dominates the scorecards

Gane defeated Tanner Boser via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-26) at UFC on ESPN+ 23 on Saturday in Busan, South Korea.
ANALYSIS
Gane came through as the biggest betting favorite on the card, even if he didn't get the finish many were expecting. He ended up winning all three rounds, and his push for a stoppage in the final frame led to all three judges awarding him a 10-8 round. Despite not finishing the fight for the first time in six pro opportunities, the 29-year-old showed he's fully capable in a 15-minute fight, which is a skill that will undoubtedly be necessary at some point in his quest for UFC gold.

Gane will fight Tanner Boser at UFC Busan on December 21.
ANALYSIS
Gane will look to improve to 3-0 in the Octagon and 6-0 overall as a professional, and is coming off a win via submission against Don'Tale Mayes last Saturday. The fight will be a heavyweight showdown, and the 28-year-old has finished all of his fights, with two submission wins to start his UFC career. It won't be easy to stay unbeaten for the Frenchman, as Boser owns an impressive 17-5-1 record at the professional ranks, and is coming off a win over Daniel Spits at UFC on ESPN 6.
Continues to look like the next big thing at Heavyweight

Gane defeated Don'Tale Mayes via submission (heel hook) at 4:46 of Round 3 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Singapore.
ANALYSIS
Gane burst onto the scene in his UFC debut. He scored a quick first-round submission and appeared to be the next big thing in the heavyweight division. His second fight here against Mayes did very little to dispel that notion. He outclassed Mayes in the striking through the first two rounds. In the final round, he appeared to hurt his opponent with strikes on the feet, scored a takedown and dropped back for the fight-ending heel hook. It was only the third heel hook victory by a heavyweight in UFC history. The heavyweight division is rather shallow, and Gane could find himself in a big fight sooner rather than later. He'll also take home an extra $50,000 for his effort in the form of a Performance of the Night bonus.
Gets second UFC fight

Gane has been booked to fight Don'Tale Mayes at UFC Singapore on October 26, Nolan King of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Gane is coming off a terrific UFC debut a couple weeks ago against Raphael Pessoa, where he won via submission in the first round at UFC Fight Night 156. Gane has just four professional bouts under his belt, but he's won each of them via submission or TKO and has only made it past the first round once.
Looks like a legit heavyweight prospect

Gane defeated Raphael Pessoa via submission (arm-triangle choke) at 4:12 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night Montevideo, Uruguay on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
There is always room for excitement about another potential heavyweight contender. It is obviously very early in Gane's UFC run, but he certainly looked the part at times in this bout. He was clearly the better striker, as he outlanded Pessoa 14 to six at distance. Pessoa tried to score a takedown, but Gane reversed it and ended up earning the submission on the ground. This was an impressive debut from the French fighter.
